• Chocolate and Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

    The smoothie bowl craze that’s been blending its way into society over the last few years ins’t over yet, and we are so excited to share this raw, plant-based treat with you.

And Lee Holmes is helping us capitalize on this delicious knowledge by sharing her recipe for a Chocolate and Raspberry Smoothie Bowl that will have your taste buds singing all morning long.

    This recipe makes 2 servings, but if you don’t have someone to share it with, don’t worry! You can actually make this smoothie in advance and freeze it in a muffin tray. When you’re ready to enjoy, take three out, whiz them in your high-speed blender and you’ll be good to go!

    Side note, wouldn’t this be the perfect treat to share with your someone special this valentines day? We think so!

  • Mocha + Banana Smoothie Bowl

    Valentines Day was a little over a week ago, but we’re still craving sweets over here at OMstars.com, so for today, we’d love to share a super simple smoothie bowl that you’ll be able to whip up and serve in minutes! We got this super tasty Mocha Banana Smoothie Bowl recipe from Lee Holmes, founder of Superchargedfood.com. Check it out, then give it a try and let us know what you think!

    Ingredients:

    • 30 ml (1 fl oz) shot of espresso coffee or dandelion tea
    • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
    • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
    • 1 tablespoon Love Your Gut Powder (optional)
    • 1 frozen banana, sliced
    • 40 g (11F2 oz/1F4 cup) hazelnuts (or any nuts of your choice), soaked and roasted
    • 125 ml (4 fl oz/1F2 cup) Coconut Milk
    • 125 ml (4 fl oz/1F2 cup) Almond Milk, or other non-dairy milk of your choice
    • toppings of your choice, to serve

    Method;

    Pour the coffee or dandelion tea into a small bowl, add the chia seeds and let them sit for a few minutes. Transfer to a high-speed blender.

    Add the cacao powder, diatomaceous earth (if using), banana and hazelnuts.

    Pour in the coconut milk and almond milk and whiz until there are no lumps; the mixture can be quite thick. If your blender is struggling, add extra almond milk or water in small amounts to help it along.

    Pour the smoothie into a bowl or serving vessel; we’ve used half a coconut shell. Garnish with your choice of toppings — fresh banana slices, a sprinkling of mixed nuts and seeds, shaved fresh coconut, micro herbs — and dig in!
