Strawberry Smoothie Bowl
Strawberry season is upon us which means we can add this amazing fruit to smoothies, desserts and salads. Some days I prefer a smoothie bowl to a smoothie. Smoothie bowls are thick and creamy and I definitely feel like I’ve had a meal, it’s enough to keep me going through the morning. Bonus – they’re so refreshing. You can add whichever toppings your heart desires to customise to your tastes and it is made in 5 minutes.
Not only are strawberries juicy and summery, they’re nutrient-rich and packed with antioxidants (like vitamin C). Strawberries offer a wide range of health benefits including boosting immunity, lowering inflammation and increasing your fibre intake.

1 handful of strawberries, washed and stemmed

For a sustainable serving bowl, hollow out the pineapple. You can freeze the remaining pineapple for making more smoothie bowls later
