I’m just chugging along and putting in the hours of practicing filming and this time I recorded myself making a smoothie bowl. A smoothie bowl loaded with protein has been my go-to meal for lunch while working from home because:

  1. I’m lazy, I don’t want to cook. This is more of an assemble and chuck into a blender recipe.
  2. I’m lazy, I want to consume something nutritious without thinking.
  3. I’m lazy, I don’t want to wash a lot of dishes.

In conclusion, a smoothie bowl for lunch is my lazy life hack to be a healthy person. Pragmatically, it’s something I can throw together whenever I’m feeling pressure at work to meet a deadline. 

I’d also like to clarify that this is not an acai bowl considering there aren’t any acai berries involve 😛

Shiny + Fancy Toys Involved in the Making of a Smoothie Bowl

Camera Gear

There’s much less movement in this video compared to the banana bread and matcha cookies ones. I impulsively decided to record myself during my lunch break on a weekday, so my cooking partner Albert C wasn’t available. Filming myself, by myself is challenging. I kept the camera lock on a tripod and used the DJI Mimo App paired with the Do-It-All Handle to compose my image and control the camera from my phone.

There are a few things that I noticed during this third round of filming with the DJI Pocket 2.

  • The camera again randomly switched its color profiles from D-Cinelike to Normal. I believe this happens when the DJI Mimo App glitches and shuts down on the phone.

Kitchen Gear

Having a reliable, sturdy blender is crucial for this recipe. I got my Vitamix from Costco four years ago and it’s still going strong! Everything blends together and the result is perfectly smooth in consistency. My previous blenders would result in chunky bits and it’s not a pleasant taste when a half-blended ball of kale hits the back of your throat.

Final Thoughts

I got hungry while editing this video. Maybe, I’m just kinesthetically addicted to crunchiness of granola. In this recipe, I’m a bit more loose with measurements. I more or less eyeball the ingredients and taste test occasionally. If something tastes too sweet or too tart I can make adjustments while things are blending.
