See demo on YouTube.


Smoothie Bowl

• handful of greens: kale, spinach, mixed greens,
etc (fresh or frozen)

• 1 frozen banana

• 1/2 cup frozen fruit (mango, pineapple,
strawberries, blueberries, acaí, etc)

• 1 tsp flax seed

• 1 tsp chia seed or basil seeds

• 1 tsp amla powder

• 1 tsp beet powder

Blend in blender until smooth. (May need to add a little liquid, but watch it.
If you add too much, it will become a smoothie.)

Top with more fruit, unsweetened coconut, and/or optional drizzle of almond or peanut butter.


• 1 cup regular or steel-cut oats

• 1/4 cup frozen banana

• 1 tsp cinnamon

• 1 tsp flax seeds

• 1 tsp chia seeds or basil seeds

• 1 Tbsp walnuts, chopped

Optional Mix-Ins:

non-dairy milk (to make creamier)

raisins, pumpkin, allspice, chopped apples, fruit
