Sticky Date and Vanilla Smoothie Bowl

This has become one of my go-to breakfasts when I wake up craving something sweet. It is so thick, creamy and delicious – how all smoothie bowls should be! I also love how quick and easy it is to make.

It is great topped with fresh berries, banana, cacao nibs and desiccated coconut – or if you’re feeling like something extra indulgent, top with a few squares of your favourite raw chocolate (or a drizzle of our choc-tahini sauce!)

You may also like to add any of your favourite superfood powders – mesquite powder or lucuma powder work well. I hope you enjoy x
