Nike Viotech AM90 Smoothie Bowl – Kicks & Grub
You can find inspiration for making healthier choices just about anywhere. I love sneakers. Always have. Collecting as kid was pretty difficult, but now as an adult I find myself with over 200 pair at a time. For me, I like a vibrant, brilliant color way, or I like shoes that tell a story.
Besides enhancing my own personal style, some shoes also inspire a recipe. The colors, the patterns, the texture – I’ll see a recipe in my head immediately. These relaunched version of the Nike Viotech based off the 2002 Nike Dunk version spoke to me right away. The bold color swatches reminded me of a jar of candy.
So, I made a nature’s candy smoothie bowl and matched the colors to the ingredients.
For the toppings you DO NOT have to be as liberal as me – I only added a lot to exaggerate the color comparison. Here are the fruits I used to match the colors:
- mango – YELLOW/GOLD
- turmeric – YELLOW/GOLD
- blueberries – BLUE
- kiwi – GREEN/BLACK
- raspberries – RED
- coconut – WHITE
- black sesame seeds – BLACK
- granola – TAN/BROWN
Ingredients for 1 bowl
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup cucumber, peeled (OR 1/2 medium banana)
- 1/3 cup plant-based milk such as almond or coconut (OR water)
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh turmeric
- 1/8 cup blueberries
- 1/2 kiwi, peeled
- 1/8 cup raspberries
- 1/4 cup shaved coconut or coconut flesh
- 1 teaspoon toasted black sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup granola
Place ingredients for the base in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick and will not blend, add tablespoons of water (or plant milk) until it loosens up and is able to be blended until smooth.
Add the smoothie to a bowl and add the toppings. Enjoy!
