Green Coconut Bowl Recipe

Green Coconut Smoothie Bowl_1

Smoothie bowls are the perfect way to add fresh fruits, superfoods and proteins to everyday fare. Adding a smoothie bowl to morning routines guarantees a great start to the day and for lunch too. Smoothie bowls are thicker than regular smoothies – thick enough to eat with a spoon. My cookbook 200 Best Smoothie Bowls has 200 recipes that can be enjoyed anytime for a refreshing, filling and healthy meal or even a delicious dessert. To order a copy, click here.

Green Coconut Bowl

Prep: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

1⁄4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (or milk of your choice)

1⁄2  frozen banana, cut into pieces if necessary

1⁄3 cup frozen chopped mango

1 cup trimmed kale leaves

2 tbsp  unsweetened shredded or flaked coconut

Ice cubes (optional)

Suggested Toppings

Sliced banana

Blueberries

Raspberries

Unsweetened shredded or flaked coconut

Chia seeds

  1. In blender, combine coconut milk, banana, mango, kale and coconut. Secure lid and blend (from low to high if using a variable-speed blender) until smooth. If a thicker consistency is desired, add ice, one cube at a time, and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a bowl and top with any of the suggested toppings, as desired.

Banana Honey Muffins

Banana Honey MuffinsIf you’re wondering what to do with leftover bananas, these Banana Honey Muffins are for you. At my house, we go through bananas like monkeys, but my neighborhood grocery store often packages overripe bananas and marks them way down. I typically freeze them for smoothies or smoothie bowls, or often make my famous One Bowl Banana Bread recipe (which is made with nonfat Greek yogurt). My husband found a recipe for Honey Banana Muffins so he and my daughter made these yesterday. They are not too sweet, light and fluffy, and they make a wonderful morning or afternoon snack or light breakfast idea with a cup of coffee. My husband likes them drizzled with honey over the top 🙂

Bananas are naturally fat and cholesterol free. Bananas well known for their high potassium content, with over 400 mg potassium in a single medium-size banana (this is great for muscle function and providing a healthy balance of fluids in the body). Bananas are also easy to digest and a good source of vitamin C, fiber and B6 vitamins.  Did you know you can use mashed bananas as a substitute for some or all of the butter or oil when making cookies or some baked goods? This recipe is going to be a keeper when school starts, so enjoy!

Healthy Breakfast Popsicles

We make smoothies and smoothie bowls almost every single day. My daughter, Leigh, turned one of our favorite simple and healthy smoothie recipes into popsicles to create these Healthy Breakfast Popsicles. All you need is five simple ingredients including the chocolate flavored Dynamic Fruit & Greens which is a blend of organic vegetable such as kale, kelp, Chlorella and turmeric that adds antioxidants as well as an amazing chocolate flavor (if you’re a Lifetime Fitness member, they sell it at the facility).

When frozen, remove from the popsicle molds and sprinkle with additional oats and chia seeds. Trust me, you’ll love these!

Layered Berry Smoothie

Layered smoothies take extra time, but they are so worth it! My family has been working out a ton this weekend (tennis tournament, hiking, swimming, running and golf) so we decided to make these Layered Berry Smoothie just in time for the Memorial Day holiday. The best way to make these, so the flavors don’t run into each other is to prepare each flavor at a time, and put each flavor in the freezer until ready to layer.

These layered smoothies are so healthy with fresh strawberries, blueberries and bananas. They are also easy to prepare, taste fresh, are filling and are good for you. Feel free to use your favorite milk, and if you can’t have dairy, feel free to substitute coconut water.

Quinoa Bowl with Almonds and Raspberries

Passover Avocado Toast

Passover Avocado Toast

Recipes for avocado toast are everywhere, a super popular healthy breakfast or lunch option. Avocado toast was actually the TOP food trend of 2015, so if you haven’t tried it or made it, where have you been? Since it’s Passover week, I made this Passover Avocado Toast since my kids were wondering what they were going to eat for breakfast that is Passover worthy (besides eggs, smoothies and smoothie bowls). This recipe takes literally 5 minutes to prepare and is probably one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever see on my website. Eat on its own or top with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It’s also fabulous with red pepper or chili flakes. Not only are people making avocado toast at home, but you’ll find it incredibly popular on menus, especially in California and New York! Try it, you’ll be hooked. It’s so good on matzah!
