Yeah, that title is a mouthful, but I just had to share ALL of the amazing flavors going on here!!!  Have ya heard???  Detour just released another brand spankin’ new ‘Smart‘ bar flavor… and I think it might just be my favorite so far!  Let me introduce you to…

 ** Coconut Almond **

Whole Grain Oatmeal mixed with Coconut and Almond Chunks and finished with a Whey Protein Yogurt Drizzle!

  • Gluten free
  • Non-GMO
  • 10g protein
  • Only 3g of sugar
  • Good source of fiber
  • Sweetened with Stevia
  • Made with organic oats

What I love about the ‘Smart‘ Bars is that the flavors are strong, yet still kinda subtle (I know, oxymoron).  You take a bite out of any of the bars and aren’t completely overwhelmed, but you know exactly what it’s supposed to be (if that makes any sense).  This ‘Coconut Almond‘ one offers just the right amount of “coconut” to get you in a mood for all things TROPICAL!  It’s delicious!

And as far as texture goes… truth be told, I actually think it’s even BETTER than the original flavors!  SO SO soft, moist, CHEWY, and I love the little almond flecks!

Of course anytime I sample a new product, first I must taste test it, then I must taste test it again to make sure my mind wasn’t playing tricks on me, then I need to take additional nibbles here and there to get a fix, and finally… I must create something special with said product!

For my first Detour ‘Smart‘ bar recipe, I decided to go with a BIG smoothie.  I knew it couldn’t be a plain old boring (yet delicious) one that I would drink from my special smooth cup though.  I needed to kick things up a notch and figured the only way I could get ALL of the toppings and flavors I had running through my mind was to serve it in a big bowl!  This would provide optimal use of space and proper distribution of toppings in each of my bites!!!

Smoothie bowls are great for getting a bunch of fun toppings in and you don’t have to worry about anything getting stuck in your straw.  Genius!

Without any further delay, I bring to you my ‘Coconut Almond Frappuccino’ Smoothie Bowl!

That’s what I call TOPPINGS!!!  Regular smoothies are great (and I drink a ‘green’ one everyday), but smoothie bowls are ten times better simple because of the toppings!!!  The first half of your bites/spoonfuls you get the crunch and then the last half… oh the last half…. my favorite… all those toppings have now soaked into your actual smoothie!  Everything is so soft and the favors have all combined.  So good!

This would make a great breakfast or and an even BETTER afternoon snack!  Either way, when you have coffee involved in your meal… it’s never too bad right?
