Tricking myself into believing that summer isn’t a whopping half a year away, I purchased a pineapple which doubled as a decorative feature until it was definitely time to get into him!  Having recently made coconut yogurt at home I thought, why not have a non-alcoholic party from the morning?!  Pina colada anyone?  A delicious… Continue reading Pina colada vegan smoothie bowl
