This what happen when you forget you are hosting brunch until its 15 minutes before the first guest arrives....
I know - that is exactly how I felt but then the idea for a smoothie bar came to me and let's just say that unless my friends read this post they will be clueless to the fact that I rolled out of bed 25 minutes before they arrived. Today's recipe is all about healthy delicious goodness in a glass topped with even more healthy, delicious things.
This is one of my favorites and since my epiphany moment , this has become the perfect brunch starter course. I will typically make a pitcher of the smoothie and then give 3 to 5 options for topping. I like to do it this way because there are folks who may like chai seed but no so much the dried fruit - so I set out the toppings and my guests can decide what they want. I have guest sip on this while the table is getting set or the last of the brunch buffet is getting cooked.
When I make this for myself, I tend to just chuck in the dried fruit, chai seed and the seed and blend it all up , but when I have guests - you want to make sure they have options/variety - hence the smoothie bar
This is also a healhy alternative to a cheese spread or a sweets table. If you have a larger party with a variety of taste - then I will usually do 2 to 3 three different smoothies and about 5 to 7 topping options.
However way you choose to go, this is a good one, especially if you are looking to get back to healthier eating habits.
