Yin Yang Superfood Smoothie Bowl

Got to love the idea of healthy creativity instigated on Instagram by @amylecreations and @delicious_and_healthy_by_maya

Yin Yang Superfood Smoothie Bowl
This recipe was my contribution to their #howtomakeithealthier campaign; which conveniently coincides with #howtomakemehappier! 
Though this is a cold smoothie bowl and therefore by rights a 'cooling' (or 'yin') bowl, the ginger and cinnamon offer a 'warming' ('yang') balance. Cooked beets also make them more warming than raw.
