LK Tropical Smoothie Bowl

It's summer time somewhere and from a Chinese medicine perspective this is when I tell my clients that it is safe to add in some raw fruit and veg to the diet.  In fact, the cleansing effects of a plant-based diet comes when you eat a fair amount of raw food.  This doesn't work for everyone and it certainly doesn't work for me on a consistent basis, but in summer, this is my breakfast style of choice. Making a smoothie bowl is so easy and your entire family will love to create their own. This is my favorite way to start a hot summer day.

INGREDIENTS

1 c/ frozen mango

1/2 frozen banana

1 c/spinach

1/2 avocado

1 c/ coconut milk

 

For garnish:

1 tablespoon hempseeds

1 teaspoon Chia seeds

¼ cup mixed nuts and dried fruit

2 tablespoons buckwheat groats (I love these for the CRUNCH!)

1 tablespoon cacao nibs

 

Assemble ingredients, except garnish,  into a Vitamix or high powered blender. Mix until smooth and creamy. You may have to work at this a bit by turning machine on and off to stir things up.  You want it to be thick like ice cream. Pour into bowls and sprinkle with garnish items.  Eat immediately.
