Lately, I've been a little obsessed with smoothie bowls on Instagram, and had to create my own.
I've created this delicious mixed berry smoothie bowl, which is creamy and packed full of fresh, fruity flavour.
I've collabed on this recipe with Pacifica Beauty.

Also, can we take a second to appreciate how cute this highlighter is! Loving the packaging (as always with Pacifica products) but the pigment is lovely! It's a perfect shade for my pale skin.
This smoothie bowl is quick & easy to make, healthy and only requires few 'easy to find' ingredients to make it. PS- all of the fun is all in the decorating.

Preparation- 5 minutes
Freezing time- Overnight
Serves- 2
Level- Easy
