|Raw Vegan Smoothie Bowl - Coconut Fruit|
I love smoothies for breakfast and my favorite is green smoothies - the greener the better. However, a thick and creamy fruit smoothie bowl is always fun to eat from!
One thing I absolutely love about creating smoothies is that there is a *ton* of options. Just think about all the fruit, greens and veggies that are available to you and the numerous ways you can interchange them to create a new smoothie each and every time. I LOVE eating this way - it's not only nutritious and delicious, but fun too!
Okay, let's get to the recipe for my smoothie bowl and then it's into the studio I go - then class this afternoon.
Raw Vegan Coconut Fruit Smoothie Bowl
serves 1 healthy portion or 2 small servings
1 cup coconut milk
2 large frozen ripe bananas
1 Tbs flax meal
1 Tbs maca powder
2 tsp chia seeds
coconut water as needed in case too thick (or plain water is fine)
Put all ingredients into your vitamix/blender, except the chia seeds. Blend until thick and creamy. Depending on fruit size and blender, you may need to add a little coconut water. While blender is running, add in chia seeds just long enough to mix in.
Pour into serving bowl(s) and top with fruit of choice - I topped mine with star fruit, strawberries, dried coconut shreds and more chia seeds. Set in fridge or leave on counter for about 10-15 minutes for chia seeds to absorb (this will thicken it) or eat immediately and enjoy this delightfully delicious and nutritious breakfast smoothie.
Just because you eat and live a raw vegan lifestyle doesn't mean it's boring. Stick around awhile or come back often and you'll see why I say that.
