Method

Step 1

For any of the smoothie bowls, add all ingredients to a blender in the order of appearance.

Step 2


Blend thoroughly on high speed for 1 minute until the mixture is completely smooth. If it is too thick or not blending well, you can add more coconut water or water.

Step 3


Taste and adjust the flavor as needed, by adding sweetener of choice for added sweetness.
Pour into a bowl and top if off with fresh fruit, if desired.

Step 4


Serve immediately for best flavor and consistency. Store leftovers in refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Storage: Store any leftovers in a mason jar with a lid. They will last for 24 hours, but I recommend consuming them immediately after making. If the smoothie settles while in the fridge, just use a fork to mix everything together again.
