Ingredients
  

  • ¾ cup plant-based mylk of choice (see below for a homemade recipe for oat mylk)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (I get mine from Pink Harvest Farms)
  • 1 tsp moringa powder (I get mine from Praakritik)
  • 1 banana, sliced and frozen
  • toppings of choice: fruits, shredded coconut, granola, cacao nibs (I get mine from  Mason & Co)

For oat mylk

  • ¼ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions
 

To make oat mylk

  • Blitz oats, water and vanilla extract for 30 – 45 seconds until well combined. Don’t over-blend as this can result in a “slimy” texture of mylk.
  • Strain through a cheesecloth to leave behind the pulp (you can strain twice if needed). This recipe makes a few extra cups, so you can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge; it should stay fresh for a few days.

For the smoothie bowl

  • Soak 1 tbsp chia seeds in 3/4 cup of oat mylk for an hour or so until the chia seeds have swelled up in texture. We are essentially hydrating the chia seeds to extract their full benefits.
  • Blitz the chia seed and oat mylk mixture with the frozen banana slices and moringa powder until you have a creamy consistency.
  • Pour into a bowl and garnish with toppings as desired. Enjoy!
