Green Strawberry-Banana Smoothie {dairy-free}

Don't you love spring?! I'm starting to spot trees with little green leaf buds and flowers, which is such a great feeling. Like the world is coming back to life and starting fresh again.

This smoothie reminds me of spring - green, fresh, light and makes me feel energized.

I treat this smoothie bowl as a cold soup. I pour it in a bowl, top with chia seeds, bee pollen and unsweetened coconut and indulge with a spoon. 

The trick is to blend the smoothie longer than you usually would. I keep my running for a minute or two, and the result is the smoothest smoothie bowl, with no pieces left behind.

You know me and my smoothie kicks. I can't have enough variations...
