Green Smoothie Bowl

If you haven’t jumped on board the smoothie bowl craze as yet, use these warm summer months to try it! Eating a smoothie with a spoon may sound a little odd, however, it offers a lot more mindfulness and satiety compared to guzzling down a smoothie the usual way! Sit down with your breakfast bowl, top it with some crunchy and colourful additions, and enjoy! This bowl packs a decent veggie punch before you even start the day plus works as the perfect recovery starter post morning session.
