If you could bottle up the taste of sunshine (which we could all use right about now), it might just taste a little something like this delicious Sunrise Smoothie Bowl. Zesty and energizing, this citrus-based recipe is just so crazy good. Immune boosting + packed with antioxidants, it packs a powerful punch. It’s also cooling, hydrating and most certainly full of flavour. And topping this with more of those tasty fruits is the best way to enjoy this. Although I’d add a little shredded coconut, too.
SUNRISE SMOOTHIE BOWL
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen orange sections
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
2 small sections of lemon
1 pinch cayenne
1 tsp goji berry powder
2 TBSP hemp seeds or favorite protein powder
10-12 oz of blending liquid (ie. almond milk, coconut water, H2O)
Toppings of choice (optional)
1. Add all ingredients except the blending liquid to your blender.
2. Begin with 10 oz of blending liquid and continue to add until you reach your desired consistency. Using almond milk as your base will yield a rich, creamy texture. Coconut water will bring out the citrus flavors and create a more refreshing & hydrating smoothie. It’s all in what you’re looking for in your morning smoothie bowl!
3. Pour into a bowl and add your toppings. Coconut chips or desiccated coconut are great topping options as they add a little extra healthy fats to get your body moving!
