Vegan Valentine Recipe: The Red Smoothie Goddess Bowl

Kupfert and Kim Valentine Recipe

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I love when my honey gets busy in the kitchen…(I’m talking about preparing a meal here). What is it about watching someone passionately working away in a kitchen? I know when planning a sexy meal, certain foods come to mind…raw oysters, chocolate covered strawberries (chocolate drizzle on anything really) but this recipe came to my attention as I’ve been hooked ever since a few years ago when I was in California and smoothie bowls started showing up everywhere!

There’s more to be said when you have an impressive dish that is well thought out. Not only is this recipe from Kupfert & Kim gorgeous, it will give you energy….er, for may later? They call it a Red Smoothie Bowl but I think it’s a Goddess Bowl as it’s beautiful and confident.

Aside from being known as a great detoxifying natural ingredient, Beets also boosts your stamina. I’ve also added in Pomegranate seeds as I understand they were the Greek Goddess Persephone’s favourite fruit!
