Spring is upon us and the warmer sunnier days provide the perfect motivation to lighten up those meals.

Creamy, colourful and full of nutrients, smoothie bowls hit the spot! The eye-catching creations include healthy ingredients such as raw almond “mylk,” berries, nuts and seeds and are naturally sweetened.

Here are 3 of our favorite locations to partake in mouthwatering and healthy bowls in Victoria:

1. Jusu Bar

Jusu Bar is Victoria’s first cold-press juice bar, using 100% organic and GMO-free ingredients and a cold-press process that helps maintain vital nutrients. Not just juices though, they also serve a gorgeous and anti-oxidant packed Berry Insane bowl with acai berry, almond butter, raw almond mylk, banana, blueberry, brown rice protein, dates, granola and strawberries! Or try their exotic Pink Dargon bowl made with dragon fruit, almond mylk, banana, granola, lemon, and mango. These bowls will keep you energized and glowing!
