My Favorite Things: Bowl of Heaven

My obsession this week is a nifty little place called Bowl of Heaven in La Verne that I found out about through word of mouth, which is located 2 minutes from my job at the LA County Fair. This place has been a healthy foodie's dream and a fantastic way for me to avoid having greasy food during my lunch break. Beware, this is not to be confused with a frozen yogurt spot however they do
sell smoothies.

What they actually specialize in are bowls, which I can only define as blended fruits with almond milk, granola, and honey. The flavor featured in the lower right-hand corner of the top picture is called a Red Zinger which is made with strawberries, acai, bananas, dark Belgium chocolate, vegan coconut whipped cream and fresh raspberries. This place doesn't focus on being a dessert franchise because nothing here is really that sweet, it's just fresh and vibrant foods that you can't possibly regret eating!

The second flavor featured below is called Dan's Peanut Butter which is acai, strawberries, bananas, chocolate almond milk, peanut butter, with hemp and flaxseed granola. I'm not going to lie, this place can be a little pricey but they give large portions and I really couldn't finish the regular size. And if you're a peanut butter freak like I am then I totally recommend this flavor above anything else!
