Benefits of a fruit breakfast

I eat fruit every morning, but not like this, this is amazing, and looks delicious! The benefits include increased energy, gentle colon cleansing, and lots of healthy fruit fiber in a filling satisfying dish. I think if I was to do this it would be a 2 part breakfast, I know I feel much better when I have at least a little protein in the morning.
