Chocolate and almond butter are probably two of my favourite foods so, inspired by my love of this flavour combination, I've created this rich, nutty smoothie bowl. I love whipping up nourishing bowls packed full of nutritious wholefood ingredients, each with a different flavour twist. They are the perfect way to start the day, enjoy as a midday pick-me-up or even an end-of-the-day treat.
