A Berry Blast Breakfast Smoothie with EarthFare
I'm slowly getting back into the routine of blogging and I'm excited to take this little space of mine in new directions. As you all know, food plays a large role in our life and I credit much of Jonas' health to clean eating and the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) diet. Since so much of our time and day revolves around food, it only makes sense that I start sharing our meals here on my website.
In addition to those exciting changes, I'm thrilled to announce that I'm guest writing over on EarthFare's website and blog, The Vine, a couple times a month. You can check out my most recent post here.
Here's a recipe I shared over on EarthFare a couple weeks ago. Smoothies are our go-to breakfast food because they are simple to make, can be taken on the road when in a hurry and they are packed full of nutrients to fuel and heal the body.
Berry Blast Smoothie Bowl
Yield: 1 serving
1 medium banana
1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
¼ cup frozen cranberries
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp. flax seeds
1 tbsp. pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp. coconut butter
1 tbsp. cashew butter
1 scoop powder collagen, optional
1 tbsp. cacoa seeds
1 tsp. chia seeds
2 tsp. goji berries
1 tbsp coconut flakes
1. Mix all ingredients, except toppings, in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour into a bowl and sprinkle toppings generously over the smoothie.
**Omit the following ingredients to make SCD legal: flax seeds, use homemade almond milk or organic apple juice, cacao seeds, chia seeds and goji berries. Add desired SCD legal toppings and enjoy.
