The vivid colors in this smoothie bowl make me smile. I love red and I love the taste of this smoothie. A balanced, healthy breakfast can keep your energy up throughout the day and also help boost your health if you eat the right things. This fruit smoothie bowl is the right way to start your day. It also makes a great post-workout meal or mid-afternoon snack (depending on your calorie goals, you may have to eat it with or without toppings, as you’ll see in the nutrition section.)
