Banana Berry Acai Bowl Recipe (vegan)

Coconut Milk Acai Bowl
Five minutes is all it takes to start the day with a powerfully good breakfast. To make this vegan acai bowl, simply blend coconut milk with fresh banana, acai berry puree and frozen blueberries. Spoon the blended acai mixture into a bowl and sprinkle with good-for-you ingredients like almonds, coconut and hemp seeds.

Banana Berry Acai Bowl Recipe (vegan)
1/4 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
1 medium fresh banana, sliced
1 pack (3.5 ounces) frozen acai berry puree (I used Sambazon pure unsweetened acai)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon chopped almonds
2 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon hemp seeds

Place coconut milk and half of the banana slices in a blender container. Run pack of frozen acai under hot water to thaw slightly; break into chunks. Snip open pack and drop acai into blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Add frozen blueberries to blender; cover and blend until smooth. Mixture should be thick; stop blender and scrape down sides as needed.

Pour mixture into a bowl. Top with the remaining banana slices, almonds, coconut and hemp seeds.

Makes 1 serving

Tip: I use a Vita-Mix high speed blender, which makes quick work of blending frozen fruit. If you use a standard blender, you may need to add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional coconut milk or slightly thaw the blueberries for easier blending.

Matcha Mango Coconut Milk Smoothie Recipe

Matcha Tea Mango Smoothies
I love sipping on a green smoothie. Typically the green in my glass comes from adding handfuls of spinach or kale to the blender. This time that gorgeous green is from adding matcha tea powder. Beyond color, it adds green tea flavor and a caffeine kick to smoothies.
Vegan Matcha Mango Smoothie
This non-dairy smoothie recipe starts with a creamy base of coconut milk. Sweet mango contributes to the silky texture, and pairs well with the flavor of the matcha.

Matcha Mango Coconut Milk Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 to 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
1/2 cup ice cubes
Natural sweetener, if desired

Add coconut milk, water, mango chunks and matcha tea to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Add ice cubes; cover and blend until smooth. Taste and add natural sweetener, if needed.

Makes 2 small or 1 large smoothie (about 2 1/4 cups total)

Tip: Matcha is whole leaf Japanese green tea ground into a powder. The color and flavor of matcha tea can vary, and adding too much matcha can cause a bitter flavor. Start by adding a small amount of matcha, and increase according to taste. I don’t typically add sweetener, but you may need to add a touch of sweetness if the matcha tastes bitter.

Mixed Berry Chia Smoothie Recipe


Berry Chia SmoothieLove or hate: where do you stand on chia smoothies? Since I’ve posted several chia recipes, you may have guessed that I love chia smoothies.how to add chia to smoothiesWhen I’m looking for a more filling smoothie, I add chia seed gel to my smoothie glass. (Chia seed gel is made by soaking chia seeds in water until they absorb the liquid and form a gel.) I don’t blend the chia seeds with my smoothie because I like the texture of the chewy, gelled chia seeds. Plus, the teeny tiny chia seeds are fun to suck up with a straw.

Mixed Berry Chia Smoothie Recipe

1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk (I use homemade nut milk)
1/4 cup canned, full-fat coconut milk
1 cup frozen mixed berries
Natural sweetener, if desired

To make chia gel, combine cold water and chia seeds in a small bowl. Let stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chia seeds soak up the water and form a gel.

For smoothie, add almond milk, coconut milk and berries to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Taste and sweeten as desired.

Divide chia seed gel between 2 glasses. Pour smoothie over chia seed gel. Serve with a straw to stir the smoothie and suck up the chewy chia seeds.
