This BeUtiful smoothie bowl is not only extremely nutritious and immune system enhancing it also nourishes and supports your spleen and emotional centre.
Your spleen helps your body to absorb nutrients from your food, it also helps you to absorb emotional nourishment too and this is why your spleen is directly related to matters of weight, comfort eating, emotional eating and challenges with your relationship with food in general. Therefore, eating in a way that supports your spleen and emotional centre, your sacral chakra, is a holistic and energetically inspired way to encourage lightness for your whole body.
A strong spleen allows for nourishment, easier digestion of both food and emotions and feeling more connected to your own inner guidance. Your spleen is also referred to as your inner mother, so when you are truly connected to this energy it allows you to make decisions that are inherently good for you, naturally and instinctively. It also helps you to feel content, satisfied and comfortably full rather than that ‘empty’ feeling that has plagued so many of us as we reach for food to try and fill that big dark hole that just never seems to feel full making it difficult to eat in a way that encourages lightness.
If you want to feel lighter and calm within your tummy and relationship with food eat to nourish your spleen and your spleen will nourish You, on all levels!
- 1 frozen banana
- 3 medium apricots
- 1 teaspoon of camu camu powder
- 1/3 cup of almond milk
Blend and then allow to chill in the freezer whilst you make the ‘crumble’.
For the crumble and topping –
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
- 1 tablespoon buckwheat groats
- 2 pinches of coconut palm sugar (or a squeeze of agave)
Process these ingredients just by pulsing a few times to leave some bigger pieces for more texture.
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 2 passion fruit
- 1 small apricot sliced
Remove the smoothie from the freezer then gently place the thinly sliced apricot around the edge, scoop out the passion fruit flesh, sprinkle the chia seeds and then top with the crumble.
