DIY// Smoothie Bowl

In London one of my favourite places to go is 26 Grains in Neal's Yard, they sell smoothie bowls and fancy porridges-of course they are delicious but tbh I just go for the aesthetics...

I decided I wanted to recreate the smoothie bowls because I'm so bored of muesli so here's how I did it (they are actually so super easy to make)

For the smoothie:
1 banana
A large handful of frozen red berries (I like them frozen because I think the fresh ones make smoothies go kinda funny)
Fruit juice (I used orange and raspberry)

I put it all in the cup thing the hand held blitzer came with and blitzed it all up until it was smooth.

Sunflower seeds
Dried cranberries
Homemade granola (see a recipe here-pluggin')
Satsuma segments

And that's it-of course you could alternate it and put anything on top really-this is just what we had in the cupboard.
A super yummy breakfast that really doesn't take that long!
Let me know if you recreate-

(if you go on my insta you can see what I had at 26 G)

p.s I am doing a photo a day this year (or at least I am trying to) and I was thinking about doing a round up at the end of each month on here? Idk would it be boring to see 30/1 photos every month-let me know

p.p.s my friend Elise has blog and I was trawling it today and I remembered just how amazing it is-you should deffs go and check it out here - she is literally the most creative person everrr

p.p.p.s I went to the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday to see Prime Ministers Questions and it was so so interesting and the Houses are so amazing-maybe I'll do a post about it? As I write this I'm cuddled on the chair with my dog (who's trying to push me out) and I'm very content.

ok bye
