Blueberry & Parsley Smoothie Bowl {dairy-free}

Time to get creative with your go-to smoothie bowl! Well, at least that's what I need to do.

I find myself making the exact same green smoothie each day - coconut water, banana, pineapple, spinach and chia seeds. Usually I don't even think about making a new flavor combination until I'm out of one of my usual ingredients. Which this week was pineapple.  

But, running out of an ingredient is sometimes a great thing! Because it forces you to substitute with something new or try a different combination. Smoothie boredom, no more!

I added a handful of parsley to this smoothie because lately our plant is growing out of control. But, I imagine basil would also work beautifully with the blueberries!

No, I don't think fresh smoothie bowls will ever get old...
