Coconut and Berry Smoothie Bowl

This is such a fun and simple recipe, you simply blend one small container of green yogurt (serves about 4 people) with frozen berries about a cup, a little honey and then mix with coconut yogurt so its thicker in the bowl. 
Meanwhile toast some coconut and nuts, and decorate with edible flowers, its spring here in North Carolina so we used viola, violet, dianthus and redbud blossoms.
