Some of my favorites. But, I change it up with whatever is on hand.
One variation: fresh peaches, mango, and banana
Ingredients: - 1 packet of frozen Dragon Fruit - 1 pouch of frozen fruit blend (see photo) (or) - 1 handful of your choice frozen fruit - 1 handful of frozen pineapple - 1/2 can of lite coconut milk - + a little coconut water, for blending - squirt of raw honey - handful of gluten-free granola - fresh berries and kiwi - unsweetened shredded coconut
Directions: Add Dragon Fruit packet and half the coconut milk to Vitamix blender and pulse to blend, or use soup mode––that seems to work best.
Add remaining coconut milk, frozen fruit, and honey. Repeat, pulsing to blend. Add coconut water (or water) in very small amounts just to get blender blades to swirl through mixture.
It takes a bit of pulsing (and stopping to stir) to get it to blend. The magic is keeping it thick and frozen, so don’t get antsy and add too much water. It’ll blend, just be patient. The smiles on your family's faces will be worth it! :)
Scoop bright purple mixture into a bowl. Top with granola, fresh berries, kiwi, and sprinkle with shredded coconut.
*Variations can include: fresh strawberries, blueberries, bananas, peaches, apples, mango… be creative with what you have on hand. And, always try for organic! Serves 2 (big portions) or 3 (normal amount) Full of nourishing antioxidants! Bon Appétit! - Suzanne
