Tasty Tuesday // Mango Lassi Smoothie Bowl with Coconut Rawnola

RAW VEGAN mango lassi smoothie bowl with coconut rawnola This dessert disguised as a smoothie has joined the leagues as a summer staple. If you’ve never had a lassi before or maybe if you’ve never even heard of it, don’t worry. I’ve got you covered. It’s a refreshing drink, popular in India and surrounding countries, that’s normally made with fruit and yogurt. I opted for my favorite tropical fruit, juicy mango, and of course left out the yogurt. The final result was a completely raw, vegan-friendly, dairy-free, and sugar-free mango lassi smoothie bowl with coconut rawnola. As the Black Eyed Peas would say, I just can’t get enough!

RAW VEGAN mango lassi smoothie bowl with coconut rawnola Obviously, my obsession with rawnola hasn’t slowed down. Inspired by the lovely plant-based mama lonijane, coconut rawnola made the perfect match for the mango banana smoothie. Mango + banana really is a combo that can’t be beat. Especially in the summertime, I’m telling you what it’s just completely changed my smoothie bowl game.

A smoothie bowl will probably be the simplest, most healthy meal you will ever make. It’s just mostly fruit blended with superfoods. No need to add any dairy or sugar. I always make my smoothie bowls vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free. It’s completely raw too, meaning no ingredients are heated at all keeping the natural enzymes alive and in tact. This is why I prefer to go with rawnola (raw + granola = rawnola). 

RAW VEGAN mango lassi smoothie bowl with coconut rawnola I’ve always been a banana ice cream type of girl, but I’m hopping aboard the smoothie train. Okay, fine I’ll admit that may be a tad bit cheesy! But still, it just shows how yummy these smoothie bowls are, like my berry cherry one I made last week. I definitely still put in a fair share of extra ripe, frozen banana to naturally sweeten it, but I’m branching out by adding different fruit, spices, and flavor.

This made a perfectly smooth & extra thick smoothie that I blended with a couple of gooey Medjool dates for good measure.

For this magical rawnola, I mixed together unsweetened shredded coconut, big Medjool dates, rolled oats, coconut sugar, and cinnamon. Now that I’ve added in the coconut, it’s a new favorite of mine. I still can’t decide which I prefer, this or my classic rawnola. The more rawnola options, the better in my opinion.  If you try this recipe, please share with me on Instagram @asunshinemission so I can see your creations!
