Clean Chia Smoothie Bowl
10 oz. frozen mangos or peaches (approximately 2 c.)
1 c. water
10 oz. frozen triple berry mix (approximately 2 c.)
1 c. coconut or almond milk
¼ c. honey
1/3 c. chia seeds
¼ c. flaxmeal
A pinch of salt
Granola, berries, toasted coconut, nuts, etc.
Soften the frozen fruit by leaving on counter for a little while if you don’t have a high powered blender. Blend the mangos or peaches with water. Put in a large bowl. Then blend the triple berry mix with the coconut milk & honey. Mix both frozen fruit purees together.
Stir chia seeds, flax and salt into the frozen puree mix. Let stand for 10-15 minutes in refrigerator to thicken.
To assemble bowl, put frozen smoothie mix into the bowl, top with granola, berries, coconut, etc. Enjoy!!
Clean Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl
1 c. quinoa, dry
2 c. water or chicken broth (if using water, add 1 tsp. ck bouillion)
1 Tbsp. avocado oil or coconut oil
4 c. shredded vegetables (mix zucchini, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, peppers, etc.)
1 c. Organic edamame, shelled
Teriyaki Sauce (see recipe below)
Green onions, sliced diagonally
Sesame seeds & raw cashews (for garnishing)
1-3 tsp. freshly grated ginger
3-4 garlic cloves
2 Tbsp. Toasted sesame oil
2 Tbsp. Rice vinegar
¼ c. raw honey
2 Tbsp. coconut sugar or brown sugar
½ c. Liquid amino’s or lite soy sauce
½ c. water
1 Tbsp. Ultra gel, cornstarch or arrow root
Cook quinoa according to package directions. I like cooking it in chicken broth so it cuts the bitter flavor.
To make teriyaki sauce, put all ingredients (except the corn starch & water) in a small pan over medium heat. Heat until boiling. Mix water & corn starch together. Once mixture is boiling on the stove, add the cornstarch & water mixture. Whisk until it heats through and thickens. If you would like it thicker, add another teaspoon each of water & cornstarch.
While cooking quinoa, get stir-fry pan or skillet very hot over medium high heat for about 1 minute, then add 1 Tbsp. of avocado oil or coconut oil. Then add all the vegetables you would like for your bowl. Stir constantly for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are desired doneness. If needed, add a couple tablespoons of water to help steam/cook the veggies.
To make bowls, put quinoa in bottom & drizzle with teriyaki sauce. Then add stir-fried vegetables, top with a little more teriyaki sauce. Don’t over do it on the sauce or it will be too salty! Garnish with sesame seeds, green onions & cashews. Enjoy!
