Pack in the nutrients early with a green smoothie bowl for breakfast.
We hear it all the time, eat more greens! But sometimes that is easier said than done.
Whitney Cummock shares her favorite way to add greens to her tropical breakfast smoothie bowls. Using avocado, zucchini, and mixed greens in a smoothie bowl adds a ton of health benefits, and gives them a deep green color.
