These healthy smoothie bowls are seasonal, as the menu frequently changes depending on the availability of the fruits. Some months, they don’t have their much-loved strawberry smoothie bowls if they’re not in season, but don’t worry as they have other fruits to soothe your cravings. All the fruits they use are sourced locally or from nearby provinces, to ensure that they only use fresh ingredients.
