A Gorgeous Green Smoothie Bowl

One of my favourite breakfasts is a green smoothie bowl.

Yes, i’m one of those people.

Aside from the flavour, the beautiful vibrant colour and the stunning antioxidants contained within, I just love the thought of eating vegetables for breakfast.

Yes, I really am one of those people 🙂

Although this is a stunning breakfast to kick start the day, it would also make a beautiful afternoon tea or post workout recovery meal.
