A breakfast bowl of summer

Summer is coming and what better way to wake up to it, than with a juicy breakfast to make you feel refreshed, shining and will give you a big burst of energy!

 Adding lots of fresh summer fruits and juicy flavours into your breakfast is the perfect way to give you a taste of the tropics. So Instead of the usual cereal and milk why not swap it with some of these quick and easy ideas.

STEP 1: The Base – Choosing the Smoothie

Smoothies are a great alternative to milk, with a sorbet taste, natural sugars and an awesome cleanser to the body; you can use this as a base. Here are some summer bursting smoothie tips using some of our Chi products:

Choco-Raspberry Heaven:

 Strawberry Mango Delight:

  • 5-6 strawberries, frozen or fresh
  • 1.5 cup mangoes, frozen or fresh (about 2 medium yellow mangoes)
  • (1/2) cup Chi Coconut Milk 
  • up to (1/2) cup water

Berry Purple Power (Serves 2):

  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries (or fresh)
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries (or fresh)
  • 6 strawberries (large, fresh preferred; frozen is OK)
  • 1/2 cup Chi Raw Coconut Water
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt (vanilla)
  • 1 tbsp honey (or to taste, optional)Screen Shot 2015-05-29 at 12.36.42

Step 2: Choosing the MAIN topping

Now it’s time to pick some toppings you could add to your smoothie bowl!

  • Adding a creamy fruit like a chopped banana is perfect to compliment the tangy taste of the berries, as it will add more sweetness to it.
  • Honey Granola sprinkle
  • Crushed Weetabix
  • Museli/ Toasted Buckwheat
  • Chia pudding
  • Or adding even more fruit is another option!Screen Shot 2015-05-29 at 12.38.23

Step 3: Any Extras?

If you want to add anymore toppings to more flavour, these are highly recommended!

  • Shredded Coconut
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Crushed Almonds (any nuts)/seeds
  • Dried fruit
  • A blob of Whole earth peanut butterScreen Shot 2015-05-29 at 12.41.45

You can mix and match any of the smoothies with the toppings for your own desired taste!
