A smoothie....THATS IN A BOWL!
I think smoothie bowls are great because those of you who are on a smoothie diet may get a little tired of the ever consistent texture or the flavours that get mushed together. With a smoothie bowl, you can have the extraordinary flavours from the smoothie, plus the added textured and some bursts of flavours.

Last night, we got back from a house party really late and our school swimming carnival was this morning. I managed to get a maximum of probably 5 hours sleep and I also forgot to wash off my mascara properly so I woke up with my eyelids sore and stuck together, further adding onto the feeling of groggy sluggishness in the morning. I needed a good, clean, healthy energy boost that would last me until mid morning. So what did I make for myself for brekkie? A SMOOTHIE BOWL!
Mum had bought some avocados after a long long time, (they're finally coming back into season here) so I decided to make and avocado, banana, kale smoothie bowl. Please be aware that for the toppings, you can actually just chuck in whatever pleases your taste. Of course not everyone has some spare Acai powder or goji berries lying around the house. Any seed, nut, dried, fresh fruit combo will do. This recipe serves 2
