Cacao-berry Smoothie Bowl [Grain free, Gluten free, Dairy free, Paleo] 

Power packed breakfast smoothie bowl to get you off to a great start!

Mornings are, well, mayhem really. Taking some time out to sit down to a bowl of goodness was just I what was needed and instead of just throwing back a smoothie, I decided to make a meal of it. I’ve made a coconut smoothie bowl before, and these really are as limited as your imagination (and available ingredients!). 

I wanted something filling, tasty and a bit of a looker – so a smoothie bowl made the most sense. Best part – not an egg in sight because I just couldn’t do it this AM!! 

You probably have all of these ingredients (mostly) so go for it. It’s delicious 🙂
