Jumpstart your day with this vanilla latte smoothie bowl

Vanilla Latte Smoothie_Bowl

I don’t sleep a lot; I mention it often. I need caffeine to get going most mornings. Today is no exception. It’s my birthday today, and in true form, I started my birthday celebrations ahead of time! This morning, I decided to combine my need for caffeine and food into one smoothie (it can be made with decaf too).

Some other health benefits of the ingredients in this smoothie include boosted immunity, and improved heart and digestive health. Have a wonderful day!
