(AD) Sunshine Smoothie Bowl
We can’t get to the islands right now. But we can bring a taste of that decadent island holiday food and sunshine like feels to our table!
I’ll be demonstrating how to make this smoothie bowl at the Go Green Expo in Auckland (March 27 & 28 on the Vitamix stand between 11am-2pm). Come along and learn some smoothie bowl tips and tricks and how to use a Vitamix to make smoothies, soups, bliss balls, juices, ice-cream and more!
I’ve had a Vitamix for years and back it. It’s sturdy, safe, powerful and has a seven year warranty. It never breaks!
By the way, this smoothie bowl is best served on a hot Summery day. Slurp it up loud. It will cool you down and that sweetness in the bowl will make you smile.
This bowl is nutrient-dense, delicious and you can make it up pretty quick.
One of the superfood ingredients is turmeric, which can aid digestion and is seen as an anti-inflammatory food.
Sunshine Smoothie Bowl
½ cup almond milk
2 cups mango flesh (you can use fresh or I just buy it in frozen chunks in 1 kilo bags from the supermarket)
1 cup banana (skin removed)
½ teaspoon each of vanilla cinnamon and turmeric
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon’ Manuka honey
Place all the ingredients into the Vitamix blender in the order listed above. Blend the ingredients quickly until smooth. Don’t blend for too long (I do it for around 10 seconds) otherwise it will make the smoothie less thick and more liquid-like. Pour the mixture into a bowl and eat just as it is. Or you can top it with whatever you have at home. I had mint leaves, shaved dark chocolate, passionfruit and coconut chips. Eat and savour!
