Rio Recipe: Tropical Green Smoothie Bowl

Creamy, naturally sweet and packed with antioxidants, this dairy-free smoothie bowl is an ideal breakfast treat to energise your day. Barley grass, the key ingredient, is packed with fibre, vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll, which helps to cleanse and rejuvenate the body.

Using frozen fruit makes this smoothie bowl deliciously thick and creamy - just like a pudding. For an additional probiotic boost, substitute the almond milk for kefir or a combination of yogurt and milk.
