Get your body in balance with this superfood smoothie bowl

Superfood smoothie bowl

Sometimes we need to cleanse to get our bodies back in balance, like say after a late night birthday party. Yes, I’m talking to myself. I totally need this today! Cleanses or choosing detoxifying foods are a couple of ways to do it. Some of the best natural detox foods are bananas, lemon, turmeric, kiwi, coconut milk or water, and oats or quinoa. Coconut and banana are also good hangover cures.

My smoothie bowl recipe combines some of these ingredients with some superfoods to cleanse and also help to cure hangovers, improve skin, immunity and heart health. Is this the greatest invention ever? Maybe!
