WORDS AND RECIPE : TALINE GABRIELIAN, HIPPIE LANE

Chocolate and Blueberry, I’m in love.

I’m always up for a smoothie, and this combination hits the spot. A cross between two smoothies flavours, I stumbled across this taste bomb by accident and it’s one of the best stumbles I’ve made.

The ultimate morning indulgence or afternoon pick up.
