The Yammy Jammy Smoothie Bowl Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 5 minutes
1 medium yam cooked, cooled and peeled
2 large ripe bananas
1 small ripe pear, cored and quartered
2 oz. (¼ cup) of full fat coconut milk (the kind that comes in a can)
2 teaspoons of lemon juice
½ teaspoon of lemon zest
1/8 teaspoon of fine sea salt
3 large medjool dates, pitted
3 tablespoons of chia seeds
2 cups of mixed frozen berries
1First pop your medium sized yam into the microwave for about 5 minutes. You can cool it down quickly by putting it in the freezer while you gather your other ingredients. The skin will separate as it cools making it super easy to peel.
2Next add the base and the liquids to a high-powered blender container: the bananas, yam and pear, followed by ¼ cup of full fat coconut milk.
3Now it’s time for the flavorings and sweetener: the lemon juice & zest, salt, and 3 large medjool dates.
4Lastly add the chia seeds and the 2 cups of frozen mixed berries. You can use any berry combination that feels special. I enjoy a mixture of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. I’ve use ½ cup of each berry in this photo.
5Secure the lid on the container and blend, starting on low and working up to medium speed until the ingredients are creamy and fully incorporated. This will take about a minute or more depending on your blender. If you have a Vitamix, use the tamper to push the food down and around toward the blade. Or stop and scrape the sides of the container as needed.
6Pour the bright berry colored mixture which will be the consistency of softened sorbet into three bowls and top with fresh berries and peanuts.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
