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.
1 c/ frozen mango
1/2 frozen banana
1 c/ coconut milk
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.
