Now that the weather has warmed up, I am so ready to ditch all of the heavy, cold weather dishes like pasta, warm soups, and brie sandwiches. As delicious as those things are, I've moved on to craving nothing but fresh fruit, smoothies, and vegan kebabs. Here are four fresh, springtime recipes for you to enjoy alongside a luscious green salad.
Similar to acai bowls, pitaya bowls are a great refreshing breakfast. The base is made with blended pitaya (otherwise known as dragon fruit) which you can buy in packs at Whole Foods. Top with all of your favorite fresh fruit and take your breakfast outside into the sun! See here for the recipe.
Vegan Hawaiian Kebabs
Recently, I've been craving grilled kebabs and all things tropical. For a vegan version of Hawaiian kebabs, grill some Beyond Meat chicken or Gardein 'Beefless Tips' and add to skewers with grilled bell peppers and pineapple. To be eaten outside, preferably. For a version with chicken, see here.
Strawberry Lemon Scones with Lemon Glaze
These scones made with strawberries and lemons have the perfect combination of fresh flavors for spring. Plus, they are dairy-free and made with spelt and oat flours. Find the recipe here.
Lush Sea Smoothie
This gorgeous, Instagram-worthy smoothie is super simple and easy to make. The bottom layer is two frozen bananas blended with a teaspoon of algae powder. The middle layer is one frozen banana blended with half a teaspoon of algae powder and the top layer is coconut milk and shreds. I believe this should make two smoothies.
