Because of the beetroot latte powder that I used for this delish, this smoothie bowl has a lovely earthy tone to it. Beetroot and dragon fruit are really high in phytonutrients and antioxidants which are great for rejuvenating cells and staying on top of any free radical exposure that we may experience in a day, however more importantly (for me), both beetroot and dragonfruit are also great blood tonics. Blood tonics are foods or herbs that nourish the blood based on their doctrine of signature and their nutrient content, in this case folate, amino acids and minerals. Dragon fruit is high in vitamin C, which supports iron uptake, and soft fibre which supports digestion and healthy fat and sugar metabolism. Both beetroot and dragon fruit are also aphrodisiac. The added edible rose petals as a topper, really puts this smoothie bowl in a category of its own, as rose is an excellent heart nurturer for our 12th body system. Other added ingredients such as moringa leaf and maca powder, chia seeds, MCT oil and plant based protein powder, means this dish delivers a solid amino acid, nutrient and essential fatty acid profile. Brilliant. It’s a real feminine delight suitable for all genders to not only nourish the body, but to also help ground and nurture in essence.
- 2 cups nutty bruce coconut milk
- 2 frozen ripe organic medium sized bananas
- 1 tsp beetroot latte powder
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1 tsp moringa leaf powder
- 1 scoop prana on coconut milk protein powder
- 1 tbsp Nui MCT oil
- coconut flakes
- almond flakes
- chia seeds
- dried black currants
- dried rose petals (your own or bought)
- Place all smoothie ingredients in a blender which can handle frozen produce, and blend until a smooth, whipped, soft ice-cream like texture has formed.
- Promptly pour into a medium sized breakfast bowl, and decorate with stated toppings.
- Because this is a somewhat frozen dish, to enjoy the texture and flavouring of the smoothie bowl, eat it as soon as you have poured it into the bowl and added the topping.
- This can also be enjoyed as a rather thick smoothie for two, more nut milk can be added to make it thinner. Alternatively, if you prefer a thicker more ice cream like consistency, use less nut milk.
