As humans, we tend to sulk a lot, don’t we? Just like how I am feeling today… My parents left after a three month stay last night. I don’t want to sound cliched by saying that I am already missing them. We all need our parents around us all the time, even though sometimes they may run over your head and make you go out of control. But parents are parents, and nobody will love us more than them in this world. I am thankful that I have had my fair share of having them around whenever I have needed them, or whenever they have needed a break from their routine back home. The kids were terrible last night. Rasha kept weeping herself to sleep while Azza kept muttering, “Enikku ummaane kaananm” (I want to see umma) just a couple of hours after she had left. I know they will come back to normal soon, and they are eagerly waiting for their vacation, though there is still four more months to go, InShaAllah…
With breakfast happening to be the most important meal of the day, it gets imperative to watch what we eat in the morning. I always struggle to have a good breakfast, though I am trying to see what best I can do in this regard. I hope I can plan ahead but nothing seems to be working in my favor. Here is one smoothie bowl that makes an amazing weekend breakfast. This smoothie bowl has all flavors that are tropical – the fruits that go into it as well as the base. I don’t think I need to explain how a medley of banana, mango, pineapple and coconut milk goes into giving you a feeling as though you are at a beach side! 😉 Combined with the pecans and fresh coconut as toppings, it takes the smoothie bowl to another level. I would suggest you to try this when you are able to get hold of all the fruits in your hand. Off to the recipe…
- 1 banana
- 1 mango
- 3 slices pineapple
- ½ cup coconut milk
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp milled flax
- Fresh coconut, pecans and milled flax for topping
- Combine ingredients from banana to flax and grind till thick and smooth.
- Empty into a bowl. Top with fresh coconut, toasted pecans and milled flax.
- Enjoy a healthy breakfast!
