Recipe: Blackberry Smoothie Bowl

This time last year, I was packing my bags for two weeks in the Costa Rican jungle. To say I miss that place is an understatement.

One of the best parts about Costa Rica was access to amazing, fresh fruit and vegetables. Here in the north, that's hard to come by (especially in the winter). But I've been under the weather recently and my body was craving fruits and vegetables. A smoothie bowl was the perfect answer.

I hadn't made a smoothie bowl before, but had eaten enough of them in Costa Rica to get the general idea. Lots of fruits, nuts and berries. Done and done.
