Blackberry Smoothie Bowl

Blackberries are one of the most widely available and nutrient dense fruits on the planet. Just one cup of blackberries contains over thirty percent of your daily recommended fiber, promoting healthy digestion and reducing the risk of heart disease. Blackberries are known to relieve common symptoms of PMS like bloating and food cravings, and are anti-inflammatory: great if you have a sports injury. Get your dose in this delicious breakfast!
