TROPICAL SMOOTHIE WITH OATS


Hello there! Even though we are entering Fall I still love to indulge in a thick and creamy tropical smoothie. For today's blend I included oats which gives the smoothie more body and lots of fiber. I was craving something sweet this afternoon so instead of reaching for junk food I had this as a snack and it did the trick!

This smoothie is packed with nutritious ingredients that are healthy and satisfying. Pineapple (my favorite) contains a high amount of vitamin C and is a good source of dietary fiber and the enzyme bromelain. It's also a great source of manganese and thiamin which is a B vitamin.

The fiber in mango can help improve digestion and because they contain allot of vitamin C and vitamin A, as well as carotenoids they can help to boost the immune system and are great for skin health. The mighty mango is also a good source of  vitamin B, potassium and magnesium.

TROPICAL SMOOTHIE WITH OATS

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 banana
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut cream
3/4 cup frozen mango
1 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1. Add oats to a blender, cover and blend until it becomes a semi fine powder.
2. Add the banana, coconut milk, coconut cream and vanilla and blend.
3. Add frozen mango pieces and the frozen pineapple and blend until smooth.

Pour and enjoy!

Thanks for reading!

STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE BOWL

Smoothie bowls have quickly become a morning staple for me! They are such a great way to get a variety of nutrients in one simple blend. I especially love how quick and effortless they are...and filling!

I've been finding some really nice, beautifully ripe strawberries at the grocery store lately so I really wanted to use them in a smoothie bowl. I topped this luscious pink blend with some sliced kiwi, shredded unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and cacao nibs for a little crunch.

SPIRULINA CHIA SEED PUDDING

Chia seeds are a staple in my kitchen. I throw them on salads, oatmeal, in smoothies and make a super simple and delicious pudding with them. Chia pudding is such a versatile dish. You can eat it with fruit, nuts, seeds, top it with granola, coconut yogurt or layer it "parfait style" with berries or fruit purees just to name a few of it's endless possibilities.

For this recipe I topped it with a chia, hemp and buckwheat cereal, some fresh berries and added some Spirulina powder to the basic chia pudding recipe to get this beautiful turquoise color.
