Easy peasy cherry kale protein smoothie

Cherry kale smoothie bowl

It was a lazy morning when I made this smoothie bowl during the week. I didn’t want to blend a bunch of fancy stuff together, but I didn’t feel like eating just cherries either so I compromised. And it turned out super!

A balanced, healthy breakfast can keep your energy going throughout the day, and also help boost your health if you eat the right things. This bowl is the right way to start your day. It also makes a great post-workout meal or mid-afternoon snack.
