5 Stunning Breakfast Smoothies

May 11, 2018

These uniquely flavorful and filling smoothies are a fantastic post-run snack or serve beautifully as a breakfast replacement. They'll power you through any workout and keep you energized throughout your busy morning. Whip up one of these smoothies for a tasty (and pretty!) treat.

 

 

1. Watermelon Smoothie Bowl

Serves 2

 

Ingredients:

 

1 cup diced frozen watermelon

1/2 cup fresh watermelon

1 frozen banana

1/2 fresh banana

1 cup frozen cauliflower rice

1/4 cup coconut milk

 

Directions:

 

1. Puree until smooth and serve in bowls or scooped out watermelon.

2. Top with your favorite toppings such as bean-based Love Grown sea stars cerealdried wild blueberries, hemp, and dried rose petals.

 

 

2. Chocolate Dragonfruit Smoothie Bowl

Serves 1

 

Ingredients:

Optional Toppings:

Kiwi, dragonfruit, cacao nibs and dried rose petals

 

*Other yummy toppings might be coconut, chia or hemp seeds! Get creative and customize it to suit your tastes.

**Note: Use white fleshed pitaya like I did or if you can find pink dragonfruit, the color of the fruit will be even more vibrant.

 

Directions:

 

1. Blend in a food processor (my choice for smoothest texture) or blender and top as desired. Add enough nondairy milk until your desired texture is reached.
