  1. for the longest time, i was holding out on smoothie bowls. paying $7 for what is basically a chunky smoothie doesn’t seem worth it to me! but then i broke down and tried one, and they’re so delicious. still not worth $7, so this recipe sounds great! especially with arugula and ginger sneaked in (:
