I know we've all heard of breakfast for dinner... but what about breakfast for lunch? If cozying up to some pancakes in the evening is okay, why can't I have a warming bowl of oatmeal in the afternoon without judgment? Seriously, try it.
The other day, I decided to make a yogurt parfait for lunch, but I wanted to add in some extra nutrients. I tend to feel a lil guilty if I haven't had any vegetables by dinnertime, so I always squeeze them into breakfast via a smoothie or lunch with a salad. Since I'm so used to making green smoothies, I started to wonder if I might be able to use yogurt in place of almond milk and blend the mixture extra thick to make a smoothie bowl of sorts. I was suddenly so excited by this idea that I had to try it right away, even though it was only 11AM. I eat like an old person, it's fine.
The end result is an amazing hybrid between thick coconut milk yogurt and a creamy green smoothie, so I'm deciding to call it a smoo-gurt bowl! I swear guys, I'm going to make this a thing.
Read on for the recipe, and let me know in the comments if you try it out!

I like to keep things simple :)
