Fruity Beauty Bowl

If I find myself in need of a little boost and want to get loads of fruit down me in one go, I turn to a smoothie bowl. It’s so quick to put together and you can be creative on the toppings. Carefully selecting and decorating your food (only the best for you and your tum) – is a great way to practice 5 minutes of mindfulness!

This is the perfect breakfast for a sunny morning and best enjoyed in the garden in your pyjamas. You can use any fruit you like for the topping, I like to use slices of banana as they float nicely on top! Berries work well as do soft fruits like kiwi and dragon fruit. If you’re going for prettiness, use a variety of colours that contrast the purple of the smoothie.
