2 Servings, 610 Calories/Serving

5 – 15 Minutes


  • ½ cup roasted red peppers
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs
  • Sun Basket arugula pesto (arugula - walnuts - Parmesan - fresh garlic - canola-olive oil blend - salt)
  • 1 orange
  • Fresh ginger
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almonds



Prep the frittata ingredients

  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; thinly slice the peppers.
  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl, season with salt and pepper, and lightly beat with a whisk or fork until blended.


Cook the frittata

In a small frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the peppers and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Spread the peppers evenly over the bottom of the pan. Pour the eggs on top. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until the eggs are set, 3 to 5 minutes.



Cut the frittata into wedges and transfer to individual plates. Drizzle with some of the arugula pesto and serve the remaining pesto on the side.


Prep the smoothie ingredients

  • Zest the orange, then peel and coarsely chop the fruit. Discard any seeds.
  • Grate or peel and coarsely chop the ginger.


Blend the ingredients

In a blender, combine the coconut milk, maple syrup, orange zest and fruit, ginger, almonds, and 1 cup ice. Season lightly season with salt and blend until smooth.



Pour into glasses and serve.
