One of my favorite breakfasts to make are smoothie bowls! This tropical green smoothie bowl is packed with tasty, wholesome fruits and vegetables which will help power your day. You can also add protein powder or a scoop of almond butter to the smoothie for some extra protein. This bowl is especially enjoyable in the summer on a warm morning. Enjoy!
