Raspberry Avocado Chia Bowl

It was yet another rainy summer day and I had started eating a lot of chocolates and other junk over the last couple of days. I like eating healthy and balanced, but once in a while I realize I have just eaten a whole box of chocolates by myself and I don't even feel sorry - whoops. So when I got up on this gloomy, grey morning I really felt like something fresh and nourishing. I turned on my favorite gloomy-day Sigur Rós playlist, and let myself be inspired by what my fridge and fruit basket had to offer this morning. An avocado, a banana and some frozen raspberries. 

Pretty basic stuff. Add some chia seeds and almond milk and you're good to go. If you don't have one or the other - improvise. The banana and avocado help in getting a creamy texture so it's good to take at least one of those, but you could add any other seasonal fruits, such as nectarines, or cherries, depending on where you live and what's available to you. 

Recipe

for one hungry person

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 banana
  • 1 handful (frozen) raspberries
  • a good splash of almond milk
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • optional: 1 tsp maca powder
  • optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • agave syrup to taste 

Just add everything to your food processor and blend until you get a creamy, slightly thick texture. The amount of almond milk may vary, just add it gradually and stop when you reach the desired consistency. Serve with some fresh berries or fruit of your choice. Sprinkle with some puffed quinoa (in case you wanna keep it gluten-free), or if you prefer oats, or other grains, everything's possible. Your power breakfast is served! 

One last advice: keep away from any dogs lingering under your table making googly eyes at you, no matter how cute they are ;-)
