Winter Flavours Smoothie Bowl

apple-date-smoothie-bowlSmoothie bowls are equally good on winter days! We love adding the warmer flavours of cinnamon, apple, and dates, which makes this a comfort food breakfast.

Normally banana is added to smoothie bowls for creaminess and structure, and because we’ve soaked the chia in the cashew milk first, it’s become a pudding that creates the right creamy texture.

Chia is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to rais HDL (the good) cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 C Cashew Milk
  • 1 tbsp Chia
  • 1 Apple, halved
  • 3 Dried, Pitted Dates
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  •  

    Directions:

    Soak the chia in the cashew milk for about 2 hours (or overnight, to have it ready for quick preparation in the morning). Add the chia pudding to the jug, along with the other ingredients. Blend starting on low speed, increasing to medium speed, using the tamper through the lid as required until you’ve reached a smooth texture (about 30 seconds).

    Decorate your bowl with coconut flakes, chia and a drizzle of honey.
