Tropical Greens Smoothie Bowl

Get into the summertime vibe with banana, mango, and pineapple. 🍌🥭🍍 Danielle from @cacaoforcoconuts_ created this bowl for those who love all things ~tropical~.

We recommend leaving in the greens for an extra boost of nutrients, BUT feel free to leave them out if you want your bowl as bright and yellow as the summer sun. ☀️ After blending, add toppings of choice to your creamy bowl. We recommend our Cacao Lil Bucks or Turmeric Lemon Myrtle Clusterbucks if you want to keep on the yellow + tropical theme.
