Tropical Green Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowl Ingredients:
3/4 cup coconut milk or almond milk (use 1/2 to 1 cup to reach desired thickness)
2 cups Taylor Farms Spinach
1/2 Mission Avocado
1 ripe banana peeled, sliced and frozen
1 cup frozen pineapple

Smoothie Bowl Topping Options
1/2 cup granola
1 tbsp toasted coconut chips
1/2 cup Driscoll’s Raspberries

Directions:
1. Add the Smoothie Bowl ingredients to a blender, and add only 1/2 cup liquid to start. Start on low speed, scraping down the bowl as needed and adding more liquid if it gets stuck. Once thick and creamy, set the mixer to high speed until it reaches sorbet-like consistency.

2. Divide smoothie mixture between 2 bowls and garnish with smoothie bowl topping options (granola, coconut chips, fresh berries, etc).

 

Tips on making your #FreshStaples last:

🍓 BERRIES 101:

  • The fridge is the best place to store your berries! 
  • Don’t wash your berries before refrigerating them, it will ensure that they last longer! We also recommend that you pat them dry after rinsing them. Dry Berries= Happy Berries!
  • Want to freeze your berries? Gently rinse them, let them dry and then pack them up and freeze for future use – perfect for smoothies!

🥑 AVOCADOS 101: 

  • Refrigerate avocados only after they are ripe, where they will stay fresh and ready to serve at the peak of ripeness for several days
  • Color is not always an indicator of ripeness. The best way to judge ripeness is to feel for uniform softness!
  • If your avocados feel mushy or very soft to the touch, it may be ripe or overripe — a perfect candidate for guacamole, smoothies or baby food!
  • YES! You can freeze your avocados! Slice the avocado and brush lightly with lemon juice. Wrap tightly in a cling wrap, don’t leave any room for air. Place the wrapped avocado in a freezer safe zip tight bag. Press out all of the air and place in a freezer. Remove and thaw when ready to eat!
  • Even though avocados have an outside skin to act as a barrier to the fruit, washing the fruit can help protect yourself from germs of previous shoppers who may have also picked up the fruit. 

🥗 SALADS 101:

  • Make sure to refrigerate your favorite salad kits until ready to use for the best salad experience! 
  • Our salad bags are breathable to ensure that the veggies and greens stay fresh! Don’t want to eat the whole salad in one sitting? Roll it up gently to remove the air from the bag, then close tightly with a clip and store back in the fridge for up to 2 days!
  • Truthfully, the most important tip we could share is our store locator, so you can dig into the flavor of fresh right away with our convenient, pre-chopped, ready-to-eat, delicious salad kits. We’ve taken the guesswork out of good salad making, so sit back, relax and get your fresh on. They’re incredibly versatile and you can enjoy them straight out of the bag, topped with your favorite proteins, as fillings for tacos, sandwiches or even sauteed for a warm and comforting meal!
