The Ultimate Autumn Smoothie Bowl

What to eat this week? We have a favorite go-to breakfast recipe from our friend over at the The Beauty Chef, Carla Oates. It’s an easy go-to and we love a good DIY smoothie bowl – especially on those mornings when we don’t feel like running to Juice Press. Breakfast woes…be gone.

“Who said smoothie bowls are just for summer? This nourishing and energizing smoothie bowl will fuel your body so it can perform at its best and give your skin a healthy glow throughout the day, because beauty begins in the belly! The BODY Inner Beauty Powder boosts your daily protein and nutrient intake, while helping to kick start your metabolism and curb sugar cravings – it’s a greens powder, super food powder and prebiotic and probiotic rolled into one!” – Carla Oates
