A Very Berry Smoothie Bowl

I have been a smoothie-for-lunch person for a long time – but when winter kicked in, I swapped it with mostly healthy eating πŸ˜‰ cause smoothies were a bit too cold for an already cold Wellington … Been having a lot of smoothie cravings recently and so I have gotten back to smoothies again. I oftened get asked if I don’t get hungry in an hour after drinking a smoothie… maybe the ingredients keep me full for a longer time and/or my body is used to smoothies for lunch lol … I honestly don’t know

So this morning, I grabbed a large bag, put my blender and all the bits I needed to make my smoothie and brought it to work πŸ™‚ Lunch time came around and I was in the kitchen chopping the fruit and making my smoothie. Got to love work places that aren’t very rigid and serious!

This one has an interesting take on smoothies – its a smoothie BOWL! I actually found it pretty filling with the chopped fruits and granola added into it

Doesn’t it look pretty

Very healthy too πŸ™‚
