Hey guys 🙂
Have you ever heard of a “spoothie”?
As far as I know, Eric Rivkin from Viva la Raw coined the term and it simply is: A smoothie that you don’t drink but spoon out of a bowl (you could call it a custard or pudding too 🙂 ). You make the mixture nice and thick adding some slices of fresh fruit to make it look beautiful.
I am sure many of you are just as glad as I am that strawberry season has begun. For this simple Strawberry Banana Spoothie I used one 250g carton of strawberries, 5 ripe medium sized bananas, a bunch of cilantro, as well as some cacao powder.
To create your own variation you could add the following:
• dates (soaked or unsoaked)
• a green or herb of your choice (e.g. peppermint, basil, lemon balm, spinach, swiss chard, celery, bok choy, …)
• cacao (powder or nibs), carob, cinnamon, cardamom, maca, or moringa
• young thai coconut meat
