Make sure your bananas are frozen. This will make sure your smoothie bowl base is thick enough to hold up your toppings.
This smoothie bowl is very bright and fresh. The oranges and Meyer lemon add a subtle citrus flavor that is also slightly sweet. I love to use Meyer lemon in this recipe because it is more mellow than regular lemons and gives this smoothie bowl a light pine flavor.
While the mint sugar may seem like an unnecessary step, it is not to be missed! It adds a little crunch to your smoothie bowl and the fresh mint flavor pairs so well with the citrus. You will most likely have extra mint sugar mixture. It's great for sprinkling over fresh fruit (especially citrus fruits) or in your iced tea.
