Smoothie Bowls for Breakfast, Lunch…and Dessert

HEADER_Smoothie

With summer well and truely set in, finding icey cool and nutrient dense foods aren’t always easy or quick to get your hands on. So let me introduce you to the succulent smoothie bowl concept, the next best thing to eating ice-cream.

This has got to be one of the best breakfast or snacks for the summer season. Not only are they filling, fruity, full of antioxidants and good fats but they’re super quick and easy.

So grab your spoon, blender and your appetite as I show you some of my favourite tantalising summery smoothie bowl recipes.

daily diet.
