Total Time: 5 mins
Small frozen banana, sliced
1 cup frozen fruit of choice – we used mixed berries but strawberries, mangos, papaya, etc. all work great!
¼ cup liquid of choice – we used coconut milk or pure pressed apple juice
1 tbsp sea moss gel or powder* **
1 tbsp of tahini butter*
Toppings of your choice – rolled spelt granola**, walnuts, hempseeds, sliced fruit, freeze dried fruit, tahini butter, coconut flakes, or any other approved topping
**see app for approved foods & recipes
Add the frozen banana and fruit to the blender and blend on the lowest setting. The goal of this step is to chop the frozen fruit into small bits – which will make blending later a much more simple. The fruit will bounce all around the blender as it gets chopped into small pieces.
Add coconut milk (or juice) and blend until smooth. Blend on low until smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides a few times to “unstick” the blender. Once the mixture is moving, ever so slowly increase the speed to medium to help the smoothie become a smoother consistency.
Once smooth, add in optional sea moss gel (or powder), tahini butter, and other superfoods. Blend again, starting on low, until smooth.
Pour into a bowl, cover with toppings, and ENJOY!
The riper the banana the better. Overripe bananas, which are nice and spotty, are much sweeter and flavorful.
Use sliced bananas. This may be a given, but sliced bananas are easier to blend for a thicker, creamier smoothie. So be sure to slice them before freezing for best results.
Use a mix of fruits or all of one kind. I like the flavor of mixed fruits, but if you only have one or two types of berries, you can adjust to suit your needs.
Sea Moss is an nutrient rich, flavorless, sea plant that contains 92 of the 102 minerals the body needs. Usually used in its gel or powered forms, adding a tablespoon to any dish is very beneficial. (Recipe coming soon!)
