Recently, mango—possibly my favorite summer food—was selected one week and chia seeds the following week. I actually eat these both pretty regularly. But for some reason, I rarely put them together. I decided to make a smoothie bowl that highlights the pairing.
Speaking of smoothie bowls, have you entered our Blendtec giveaway yet? Just a couple more days left to enter for your chance to win an amazing, high-powered blender. And then you can make smooth, ice cream-y smoothie bowls like this one! Life is better with a really good blender. And I'm only being slightly hyperbolic with that statement.
- 1 1/4 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice (can substitute orange juice)
- 3/4 cup plain kefir or drinkable yogurt
- 1 Tablespoon hemp seeds or hearts
- 2 Tablespoons unsweetened, shredded coconut—some reserved for topping
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
Place yogurt, mango, hemp seeds, and coconut in the high-powered blender (or food processor). Blend until smooth. It should be the texture of soft-serve ice cream.
Spoon into a bowl and top with the chia seeds and additional coconut.
This bowl is just a really bright way to start the day. It's also packed with protein, good carbs, probiotics, fiber, omega-3s. Good stuff.
