Mother’s Day Simple Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed on Mother’s day? Absolutely! A delightfully simple smoothie bowl which is blood sugar friendly and loaded with antioxidants and good fats. It’s my favourite breakfast for a lazy start and perfect for a Mother’s Day “stay in bed till late” type of morning… maybe followed by a few hours in the spa afterwards.
