With summer quickly approaching, we’ve got

one breakfast essential on our minds: smoothies! You’ve probably seen your fair share of smoothie bowls garnished with an abundance of fruits, nuts, and edible florals (the list goes on and on!), but we’re all for switching things up

around here. Introducing the ombre smoothie! This colorful creation is not

only easy to make, it’s refreshingly delicious and simply picture-perfect. Berries, yogurt, and a little creativity combine in this beautiful, blendable, nutritious treat.
