Pink Smoothie Bowl
I recently realised that I had never posted a smoothie bowl recipe on the blog, despite me having them on a nearly weekly basis. For a good while, I had green bowls on repeat, until I started noticing that for some reason I struggled to digest them. It was an interesting experience to notice how long it’s taken for me to make the link between the green bowls and feeling tummy discomfort, but after a few months, I was certain that there was a link. I’m still not sure whether it was one particular ingredient that my body didn’t like, but even if I used to love the taste of them, I decided to stay away from them for a while. That’s when I expanded my repertoire and this pink coconut and berry loaded smoothie turned out to be very satisfying, minus the tummy ache. I’m listing below a few topping ideas, but any fruits, nuts, seeds or other superfood of your choice can do the job here. A few spoonfuls of granola also make a more sustaining breakfast. And although I have classified the recipe under the breakfast section, smoothie bowls are a nice snack to have at various times of day – I like mine as a post yoga recovery treat.
Happy Monday and have a beautiful week xx
