The Only Fish I’ll Ever Eat

…is a fish made out of fruit!

I took the ACT today. The ACT is a timed standardized university placement test and it’s 4+ hours long. It consists of 5 sections: writing, mathematics, reading, science, and an essay prompt. It’s grueling, and needless to say, I was exhausted after 4 hours of filling in bubbles.

I made a smoothie bowl after I finished to cheer myself up. But not just any smoothie bowl: a picture smoothie bowl! I decided to depict my goldfish, who was only supposed to live for a week, but instead lived for 9+ years! Has anyone else had a fish that lived that long?

This is also the only “fish” that I’ll ever eat (since I’m vegan and all). It’s made of a mix of frozen peaches and strawberries and is much yummier than I remember fish tasting. Enjoy!

      It’s so fun to make smoothies into animals, shapes, and other objects. My personal fave is the “bunny bowl” I made 🙂 I hope you try smoothie bowls and LOVE them!

        I saw the bunny bowl! It’s so cute 🙂
        Glad to see another teenager on the blogosphere, and definitely looking forward to your new recipes. We have lots in common when it comes to food – peanut butter is my obsession (seriously, we’re talking 3+ tbsp/day) and I adore bananas, pancakes, flax… 🙂
