Hello from the Positive Palate!

This recipe today is my morning snack/meal of choice: SMOOTHIE BOWL.

You can top them however you wish, they taste like a treat and can be prepared in 5 minutes. What's not to love!? My favorite vegan protein powder is by Amazing Grass, and I have a hard time finding this in stores. I recommend purchasing on Amazon for the lowest price!

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 banana, frozen

  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen

  • 8 oz. almond milk (sub cashew, flax, soy, coconut)

  • 1 serving of Amazing Grass Pure Vanilla Protein Superfood

  • 1 tbsp, flaxseed

  • 1 tbsp, cacao nibs

  • 1 banana, sliced

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Blend together frozen banana and berries, almond milk and protein powder.

  2. Spoon out into a bowl and quickly arrange your favorite toppings.

  3. DEVOUR!

 

 

Honey-Lime Fruit Salad

 

Fruit is nature's candy, but sometimes I like to switch things up a bit!

 

One of my favorite ways to add some variety to a fruit salad is with a honey-lime dressing. The topping takes less than 5 minutes to mix together, adds no refined sugar and a ton of flavor!

My four year-old had to be cut off from digging into this. 

 

I typically create a fruit salad with a couple substantial options such as melons, pineapple or grapes then add berries!

The leftovers will keep in the fridge for a day or two, otherwise you can freeze and use in smoothies. 

Please let me know what you think!

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound of strawberries, sliced
  • 1 small pineapple, cubed
  • 1 cantaloupe, cubed
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a small dish zest an entire lime and then squeeze juice into dish. 
  2. Whisk in honey and cinnamon. Set aside. 
  3. Layer fruit in large bowl.
  4. Spoon over honey-lime mixture slowly over fruit and lightly toss.
  5. It's best to allow 30 mins to chill and marry flavors, but can also be enjoyed immediately!
