Hibiscus Kava Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowls are beautiful and leave so much space for fun ingredients, to blend in but also as crunchy toppings. When I wake up in the morning I'm usually in one of two boats: "OMG, how is it morning, I'd like to go back to bed right now." OR "Let's go, I'm ready to make this day pure fire." This helps me decide how much coffee I'm going to need and what I want to do for breakfast.

I created two smoothie bowls that complement both moods and leave you satisfied. Dive into this relaxing berry and kava infused smoothie or try our Turmeric Coconut Smoothie Bowl, made to put a little pep in your step!

Hibiscus Kava Smoothie Bowl

Makes 1 Medium-sized Bowl

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt (or dairy free yogurt)
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen banana
  • 3/4 cup of fresh blackberries + blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup Hibiscus Kava Tea 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons hibiscus petals (for Hibiscus Kava Tea)
  • Yogi Brand Kava Stress Relief Tea (for Hibiscus Kava Tea)                     

    Hibiscus Kava Tea:

    1. Boil water and pour into a weck infusion jar or like sized vessel

    2. Add hibiscus petals and 1 Kava Stress-Relief Tea Bag

    3. Steep for an hour, strain petals and bag out and pour your liquid back into the vessel, allowing time to fully cool. I put it in the fridge over night and used it in my smoothie bowl the next morning. 

    Toppings:

    • Fresh strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries

    Directions:

    1. Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. If the mixture seems too thick, add in extra tea, milk, or water. If it seems too thin, add in extra frozen fruit or ice.

     2. Pour into a bowl to enjoy and decorate with all the fixings!
