Why hello sunshine! What makes you wake up happy and jump out of bed with excitement?
For me, they’re things like embarking on a road trip, hopping on a plane to an unfamiliar destination and, of course, dipping my toes in the sands and the sea! But for the rest of the days when I carry out my daily routine and am home-bound to work on my projects (i.e. most weekdays), I need to create certain kind of thrill that motivates me to hop out of bed saying ‘I think I can’t wait for the day to start!‘.
Do you feel the same?
So I’ve begun this #StartYourDayRight journey here, on my Facebook and Instagram. It’s all about sharing bits and pieces of blissful moments to kick off my day bursting with healthy, happy and positive vibes. I’m pretty sure there’d be some kind of research proving that colourful breakfast bowls boost production of our happy hormones (point me to the articles if you’ve seen it!). I swear it does the magic for me. I love bringing to work my mason jars that are filled with layers of fruity bits, oats, cacao, acai, coconuts.. oh, the list is simply endless! Seriousy, preparing tastebud-enticing breakfast doesn’t involve much sweating at all. I spend 3 to 4 minutes at most in the evenings to make my breakfast jars. Otherwsie, I’ll fall into the trap of grabbing a greasy bacon and egg roll – we all know how easy it is to go down that path!
I’m sure lots of you are still working hard to achieve your wellness goals for the new year (yep I’m looking at YOU), so I thought I’d share one of my favourite wholesome breakfast recipes today. Ta-dah – meet my darling papaya banana smoothie bowl! I promise it’s easy as peas to prepare so come along! 🙂
♣ You’ll need ♣
Raw coconut milk x 200 ml
Organic yoghurt x 4 tablespoon
Banana x 3
Natural almond spread x 1 tablespoon
Raw cacao powder x 2 tablespoon
Raw cacao nibs x 2 tablespoon (Note: there’s a giveaway on the bottom of the post!)
Raw almond flakes (optional)
Natural rolled oats (optional)
♣ Here’s how-to ♣
1. Chop your bananas and papaya into medium sized pieces and throw them into your blender/ smoothies maker. I leave one-third aside to use as toppings later on.
2. Add coconut milk, spoons of yoghurt, almond spread and cacao powder into the blender with your fruits.
3. Blend for 2 to 3 minutes until it turns smooth. Pour the smoothies into a glass bowl when done.
4. Time to add your favourite toppings! I use raw cacao nibs, almond flakes and rolled oats.
5. Finally, sprinkle with the remaining fruit pieces on top and viola – bon appetite!
