For the love of coffee and cashews smoothie bowl

I just moved, and as anyone who has moved can attest, getting a good rest isn’t going to happen until everything is put in its place and settled. I don’t drink a lot of caffeine, but I need some serious injections of it today to wake up. I wanted to be a little creative with it, so I put coffee in a smoothie bowl…it’s like a jolt of awesomeness.  The smoothie bowl is also full of healthy things to support digestion, weight loss, heart health and boost immunity.
