When your morning meal turns into a Fairtrade breakfast bowl it looks kind of like this.

Whip up this chocolatey Fairtrade Espresso Cacao Smoothie Bowl in 5 minutes – a brilliant way to kickstart your morning with energy, flavour, and a caffeine kick. This recipe is great for gluten-free, vegan, guilt-free pleasure.

And if you want to make it peanut-free, swap out the peanut butter for your favourite seed butter or a sweeter touch of maple syrup.
