Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday. I was craving something sweet today and didn’t want to ruin my diet, so I decided to make a strawberry smoothie bowl for a snack.

I actually was inspired to make this recipe after having it at a local restaurant a couple of years ago. It has honey and red pepper flakes which I know sounds like an odd combination, but trust me… it’s amazing.
