Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you have all had a productive and fun, yet relaxing and easy start to your weekend. What did you do today? What was the weather like where you are? What did you eat?! It’s getting late in the day where I am, and at this point I’ve accomplished a clothes shopping trip to the mall that consisted of my buying a Matte Lip Paint from Sephora, and that’s it…So it’s safe to say that my Saturday didn’t go as planned, but it was easy going and calming; not much more I could ask for on a chilly, gloomy day.
Now, onto the recipe! I’ve made it a point to eat a good breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings, as my weekday breakfasts usually include an orange or a handful of granola on my way out the door. This breakfast bowl is packed with vitamin C, delicious, as well as quick and easy to make! Ontop of being both gluten free and vegan, it actually takes less than 15 minutes to prepare. The only extra time is for garnishing, and you can skip that step if you’d like (but it’s oh so pretty!).
See below for recipe
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
2.5 cups unsweetened coconut milk (or almond, soy, or rice milk)
1/2 cup frozen cubed mangos
5 whole frozen strawberries
3 slices fresh pineapple
1 tsp natural vanilla extract
1 tbs chia seeds (optional)
2 tbs hemp protein powder (optional)
1 tbs flaked unsweetened coconut (garnish, optional)
2 tbs gluten free granola (garnish, optional)
1 small strawberry, sliced (garnish, optional)
1 clementine (garnish, optional)
Blend the frozen strawberries and mangos, peeled clementine, and pineapple slices in a food processor with coconut milk until completely blended and smooth in consistency. Add in the chia seeds, hemp protein powder and vanilla extract and pulse until mixed through. The smoothie will be quite thick, but this is what you want in a breakfast bowl. Once made, garnish as intricately or callously as you please, with whatever ingrendients peak your fancy and make your weekend morning bright and beautiful.
