Bowled Over At Natural Born Juicers

Whether a healthy lunch replacement or a sweet treat after a workout, Natural Born Juicers’ chockablock Pro Bowl will keep you at the top of your game.

  • Fresh blueberries and strawberries give the bowl the dessert quotient of a fruity parfait.
  • The smooth, ice cream–like base consists of frozen bananas puréed with housemade almond milk, almond butter, natural agave, and hemp protein, a vegan supplement that’s easy to digest.
  • Dried white mulberries lend a chewy texture, tangy flavor—and a full day’s supply of vitamin C.
  • Circle City Sweets granola adds some nuttiness.
  • Bee pollen from Wildflower Ridge Honey in Anderson provides great allergy protection.
  • Tropical notes come from slivers of sweet coconut and Brazil nuts.

A graduate of IU’s Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing, Terry Kirts hails from a town in Illinois so small it didn’t have a restaurant until he was in the 8th grade. Since 2000, he’s more than made up for the dearth of eateries in his childhood, logging hundreds of meals as the dining critic for WHERE Indianapolis, Indianapolis Woman, and NUVO before joining Indianapolis Monthly as a contributing editor in 2007. A senior lecturer in creative writing at IUPUI, Terry has published his poetry and creative nonfiction in a number of literary journals and anthologies, including Gastronomica, Alimentum, and Home Again: Essays and Memoirs from Indiana, and he’s the author of the poetry collection To the Refrigerator Gods, published by Seven Kitchens Press in 2011.
