Tropical Green Power Avocado Bowl

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado, cubed
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa (or brown rice for a heartier option)
  • 1 cup leafy greens (spinach, kale, or a mix)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • 1/4 cup chopped mango
  • 1/4 cup sliced banana
  • 2 tablespoons toasted coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Optional Toppings:

  • Vegan yogurt (coconut or almond)
  • Drizzle of agave nectar or maple syrup
  • Fresh mint or basil leaves

Instructions:

  1. Cook the quinoa (or brown rice): If not using pre-cooked, follow package instructions for cooking your chosen grain.
  2. Assemble the bowl: In a large bowl, combine the cubed avocado, cooked quinoa, leafy greens, pineapple, mango, banana, coconut flakes, and chia seeds.
  3. Dressing: Drizzle with lime juice, sea salt, and black pepper.
  4. Top it off: Add your desired optional toppings like vegan yogurt, agave nectar/maple syrup, and fresh herbs.

Tips:

  • Toast the coconut flakes: For a richer flavor, toast the coconut flakes in a dry pan over medium heat until lightly golden brown. Watch closely to avoid burning.
  • Ripe matters: Choose a perfectly ripe avocado for the best creamy texture. A slightly firm avocado will work too, but allow it to ripen further before assembling the bowl.
  • Make it ahead: You can pre-chop the fruits and cook the quinoa the night before for a quick and easy breakfast prep.
  • Endless variations: Get creative with your toppings! Try adding chopped nuts or seeds, crumbled tempeh/tofu, or a dollop of vegan pesto for a different flavor profile.

Enjoy your delicious and healthy tropical green power avocado bowl!
