I have always been a major fan of smoothies and acai bowls, and really all of that fruity breakfast business. I'm bringing my smoothie game hard this year with an effort to avoid skipping breakfast altogether, and with the plan to try out some new recipes. First up, my Mango Monday Bowl. Sure to kick any Monday blues, or at least I think so! xo RCN
Ingredients for bowl mixture (serves 2):
1/2 Cup frozen peaches
1/3 Cup chopped frozen mango
1 Whole fresh mango sliced
3/4 Cup Coconut Milk
1/2 Kiwi chopped
1 Tbsp raw honey
1/4 Cup granola mix (whatever kind you like...I use Cascadian Farm's organic vanilla, coconut & pumpkin seed granola mix)
Sprinkle of shaved coconut flakes
Spoonful of chia seeds
1 Kiwi for "M-A-N-G-O" letters + 3 thin slices (I used mini cookie cutters from Homegoods)
1 frozen mango cube cut into 8 small pieces
Add a few floral buds from whatever flowers you may have laying around in the house. This will definitely help to impress your breakfast buddy!
It's pretty simple folks. Combine all mixture ingredients together in a blender. Blend until thick and frozen creamy, about 1 minute or so. You may need to open blender, stir, then pulse again for an additional 20 seconds if the mango slices get caught underneath the blade (this happened to me). Then, top it all off and decorate with the extra coconut and healthy goodies. Happy Monday or whatever day it may be!
