October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I'm proud to be partnering with bubly™ to share a healthy recipe that just so happens to be pink. But more on this fruity bowl of goodness in a bit.
Breast cancer unfortunately impacts so many families, and mine is no exception. While my grandmother, aunt, and cousin have all fought the same battle, I'm struck by how varied the circumstances can be. My family members have received their diagnoses at drastically different ages (40s, 60s, and 80s), with both women and men being affected.
It truly is an area of health awareness that is relevant to us all, and that I know will only grow in importance for myself, personally, as a woman in my 30s. In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, I make sure that I know my family history, communicate it to my doctor, and follow her advice for regular care and screenings.
There are many ways to get involved in the fight and increase awareness, including signing up for a virtual Race or Walk, becoming a breast cancer advocate, creating a fundraiser for Susan G. Komen or making a direct donation, and buying grapefruitbubly™!
Throughout the month of October, bubly™ is pairing with Susan G. Komen to donate money and raise Breast Cancer Awareness through several initiatives, including the specially-branded cans you see here in these photos.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I am a BIG fan of flavored sparkling water.
What I love about bubly™ is that their natural fruit flavors are bold, crisp, and really shine through. They manage to deliver all of that delicious taste with no calories or sweeteners in a fun package that will get the whole family to crack a smile.
I buy my bubly™ in the sparkling water aisle at my local Publix. As a food blogger, I've logged serious hours in grocery stores over the years, and I say with much experience that shopping at Publix truly is a pleasure.

In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to share a healthy pink recipe that pairs well with grapefruitbubly™. This peanut butter and jelly smoothie bowl fits the bill on all counts!
Smoothie bowls are a fun way for the whole family to enjoy a smoothie, using a bit less liquid so it's thick and perfectly spoonable. Its presentation is reminiscent of a bowl of soft-serve ice cream, except it's primarily made of frozen fruit.
With these simple ingredients and a blender, you can quickly whip up a smoothie bowl that tastes JUST like its classic flavor inspiration.
- Frozen strawberries - one heaping cup will do, either sliced or whole
- Frozen raspberries - these play off the strawberries and add to that wonderful "jelly" flavor
- Peanut butter - your preferred variety, stir well before using if it's a natural variety
- Milk - your preferred variety, whether that is oat milk, coconut milk, almond milk, dairy milk, etc.
- Optional: ground flaxseed, chia seeds, granola
All you need to do is add your ingredients to the blender, starting with one-quarter cup of milk, and blend until the fruit is chopped up into small bits. You may need to stop and carefully scrape down the sides or stir up the fruit to allow everything to blend evenly.
Depending upon the power of your blender, you may need additional liquid in order to thin out the mixture to make it pourable. Add additional milk one tablespoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency (I've found six tablespoons of milk in total to be the sweet spot).
Garnish with your favorite toppings (or not), crack open a grapefruitbubly™, and dig in.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl
- 1 heaping cup frozen strawberries
- ½ cup frozen raspberries
- 2 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 6 tablespoon milk (oat, almond, coconut, your choice)
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed optional
- Chia seeds
- Ground flaxseed
- Add frozen strawberries, frozen raspberries, peanut butter, ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) of milk, and flaxseed, if using, to a blender. Blend until fruit is in small bits, stopping to carefully scrape down the sides and integrate the ingredients as needed. During this process add additional milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency. I use 6 tablespoons of milk.
- Pour out mixture into a bowl and sprinkle with your favorite toppings: granola, chia seeds, more flaxseed, etc.
- Serve alongside a grapefruitbubly™!
