Blueberry and banana smoothie bowl

Só, after this winter I decided to take the next sixty days to adopt healthier habits, to take my health back one day at a time.  This includes exercising most days and starting each day with a breakfast that is rich in micro nutrients.  This blueberry and banana smoothie bowl meets the exact criteria.  The great thing is that it actually tastes just like blueberry ice-cream.  This is like Summer in a bowl.  I love to just take my time savouring each spoonful packed with amazing anti-oxidants and cancer-fighting benefits.  This smoothie bowl leaves me so satisfied, I don’t need another snack until lunch time.  I like to add extra nuts and granola as a topping for extra crunch and texture.
