I was sold on the 1st of June! The first morning of June I made this bowl of heaven and I knew straight away, this would be the recipe of the month! It’s just incredible! And you MUST, I repeat MUST try it! I have no other words..
Well I’ve got a few..
I wasn’t sure about cinnamon in my nice cream at first.. I mean, I absolutely love cinnamon but I know not everyone shares the same love! But the mixture of almond butter, maple and cinnamon is subtle, perfect and all round heaven! If you are on the line about a cinnamon flavoured nice cream, not to worry, this is just the right amount of cinnamon! Trust me on this one!
Now I realise there aren’t as many toppings as my normal smoothie bowl creations, but these special few stand out from the rest and are just enough! ! Toasted almonds and raisins and cinnamon work perfectly and 2. can’t beat bit of blue, red and green for presentation points eh? And they go with the whole cinnamon and almond thing too!
So i hope you like it after I’ve saved it all month and blabbed about it bit.. will be awkward if you don’t.. but I’m sure you will! Fingers crossed anyway!
