Gluten-free Smoothie Breakfast Bowl

In June, I featured several smoothie recipes. Depending on the season, there are so many different variations to a smoothie.  With summer fruits in abundance, it is not too difficult to find inspiration for a smoothie combo.  You can also get creative with flavour combinations, and even toppings.

With autumn  not too far away, (no, I’m not chasing summer away just yet), soon we’ll be moving away from cooler, refreshing breakfasts to comforting porridge’s and warmer meals.

So whilst it is still hot out there, enjoy this smoothie breakfast bowl!
