The Canadian Beaver Tail smoothie bowl

The Canadian Beaver Tail smoothie bowl. It's vegan, gluten-free and super easy!

Beaver Tail Smoothie Bowl

Happy birthday Canada! Happy weekend everyone! Before I get into the smoothie, for those that are wondering what a beaver tail is, it’s a Canadian pastry. In honor of our 151st birthday, I made a red and white smoothie bowl for breakfast. This is my most Canadian smoothie ever and it’s awesome!

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
