A quick post today, and a quick recipe to match.
I’ve talked before about how I like to eat my smoothies out of a bowl with a spoon – which I concede is perhaps is a little odd, but it just feels more wholesome to me that way. I also like to have a topping of some sort on my smoothie. Sometimes its fruit, often berries, or some chopped nuts. In a rush, its a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Lately I’ve been making a batch of this Superfoods mix so that I always have something on hand to “garnish” my smoothies with. It also works great on top of porridge, muesli, or sprinkled over green smoothie pancakes. Its packed full of antioxidants, high in amino acids and essential vitamins and minerals and adding it to your morning meal makes it oh-so-much better!
Superfoods smoothie topper
Notes: The ingredients used here are those I often have on hand. Feel free to swap out one kind of seed for another, or add chopped nuts, cacao nibs – you get the idea!
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup goji berries
2 Tbsp chia seeds
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 heaped Tbsp bee pollen
Roughly chop the bigger seeds either by hand or in a food processor.
Combine all ingredients in a container and mix well.
Store in an airtight jar for up to 2 months.
