When we went to Thailand, we had THE BEST DAMN smoothies.
I attribute this to their wide selection of fruits & delicious coconut milk.
So when I came back from Asia, I was kind of searching for a smoothie with a bit more of an OOMPH. I mean, I love a good strawberry, banana, almond milk smoothie any day, but if we’re being honest it’s kind of a basic smoothie…so duh, no surprise I had to whip up something new & fresh. Introducing this new TSC-approved, tasty smoothie BOWL.
Firstly, this little number is filled with superfoods. LIKE FILLEDDDD.
Think: mango, strawberries, coconut milk, chia seeds, a little chocolate, AND these badass little smoothie packs, made by ALOHA, that I recently discovered ( << get excited ).
This one is the berry packet & it includes: blueberries, pear, peas, raspberries, spinach, mooring, spiralina, king trumpet mushrooms, Himalayan pink salt, lemon, Hawaiian yellow ginger…aka two to three serving of fruits/vegetables.
These are perfect for a little smoothie kick, especially for people who are busy. Plus you can throw these little adorable ALOHA packets in your handbag & add them to water/smoothies/juices when you’re on the go. YESSSssss.
Ok so recipe time:
1 handful of mango
1 handful of strawberries
1 cup of coconut milk ( << my fav!)
2 scoops of chia seeds
1 packet of ALOHA’s berry superfood
3 sprinkles of turmeric (<< endless benefits!)
1 handful of ice
Garnish: superfood chocolate shreds & fresh mint
Directions: blend everything besides chocolate shreds together. Pour everything into a bowl. Top with mint & grated chocolate ( I use a mini cheese grater for this ). Eat with a spoon.
I feel like this smoothie bowl just brings me back to Thailand & I’m basically sitting on the beach, with limited Internet thinking about the day’s pressing decisions: should I go kayaking? Does the jacuzzi or the pool sound more relaxing? Coconut water or mojito? What time should I schedule tomorrow’s deep tissue? Mango smoothie or mango sticky rice?
Super, super pressing decisions.
Anyway, for now I’ll have to just drink my tropical mouth party & close my eyes.
Ok, so what is your favorite smoothie addition that’s kind of weird & different? Share something that’s super outside the norm? Please!! The more ideas, the better.
