The Canadian Beaver Tail smoothie bowl!

Strawberry and coconut cream smoothie bowl

I posted this on Canada’s birthday, but it didn’t post properly, so I mentioned I would repost because this is my most Canadian smoothie ever and it’s awesome! Before I get into the smoothie, for those that are wondering what a beaver tail is, it’s a Canadian pastry. In honour of our 150th birthday on July 1, I made a red and white smoothie bowl for breakfast. Realizing I am not talented enough to design the Canadian flag on a smoothie, I have some time to achieve this for next year.

I decided to make this as Canadian of a smoothie bowl as I could and include some beaver tail ingredients and a little maple syrup!

Some of the health benefits – yes surprisingly there are some – include supporting skin and hair health, weight loss, and helping to fight infections
