Chocolate smoothie bowl

I first had a smoothie bowl in Seminyak, back in the days when we could travel to tropical Bali. It was the most beautifully presented breakfast I'd ever seen –  vibrant pink berry smoothie topped with lush tropical fruit. Since then I've been making them at home every summer.

I'm sharing the recipe here for you to make for someone special, and yes, that special person can totally be yourself!
