Ingredients

  • 70 g cooked quinoa
  • 200 g frozen raspberries
  • 190 ml almond/hazelnut milk/coconut water
  • 12 prunes pitted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup optional

Instructions

  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and puree until velvety smooth.
    If you are using the Optimum VAC2 Air Vacuum Blender place all the ingredients in the jug and use the 'vacuum', 'smoothie' functions (alternatively set the timer and speed (I recommend using high speed) manually and puree until velvety smooth). Pour into bowls and enjoy! Makes 2 good size portions.

Notes

  • Quinoa: Quinoa is a great ingredient to prepare ahead. Cook it according to packet instructions and once cooled, refrigerate, covered, for up to 3 days.  That way you can make a fresh smoothie bowl every day!
  • Fruit: Try using strawberries or mixed berries instead of (or in addition to) just the raspberries.
  • Blender: Use a powerful blender to ensure the mixture is silky smooth, not grainy. I used Optimum blender.
  • Storing: Refrigerate leftover smoothie mixture in a jar for up to 2 days.
