Start your day right. Father of triplets, Ecoriginals ambassador Nic Laidlaw shares his Cocoa Smoothie Bowl. “Post birth, mamas lose a lot of their reserves, and the body needs easily accessible nutrients, and easily digestible foods to restore vitality. A smoothie bowl like this – loaded with good fats and great flavours – is easy for the body to absorb to assist in the growth and repair of our bodies.”
Serve it fresh from the smoothie maker.
Ingredients: (serves 2)
1 heaped Tbsp raw Cacao powder
1 can coconut cream (nakula is our fave brand)
1 Tbsp psyllium husk
1 teaspoon green power mix (from any good bulk foods store)
1 Tbsp honey
Handful shredded coconut
Pinch of salt
Place all your topping ingredients in blender (minus banana and edible flowers) and blend for 2-3 seconds to give them a nice chop. Then place in bowl ready to decorate.Without washing your blender add your cocoa, coconut cream, banana, avocado, psyllium husk, green power and honey and blend until smooth. If too thick, filtered water can be added to reach desired consistency.
Serve smoothie in a wide set bowl then get creative sprinkling the blended topping, sliced banana and some beautiful edible pansies.
