This is one of the dreamiest smoothie bowls we’ve ever seen! Cashews, mulberries, lemon zest, vanilla and oat milk are blended with melted cocoa butter until the mixture smoothens and thickens into a creamy concoction. Place it in the fridge or freezer to preserve the flavours, and eat it when it’s chilled!

It’s a step away from the bland alfredo meals at Italian restaurants. Garnish this dish with a sprinkling of fresh chives and you’re good to go!
