To power up these smoothies, Chef Justine adds lucuma powder, a low-glycemic natural sweetener dating back to the Incas; cherry tomatoes, arugula, and goat cheese bring classic summer flavors to this quick scramble.

Ingredients

  • PINEAPPLE-CUCUMBER SMOOTHIES
  • 1 cucumber
  • Fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1½ cups chopped peeled pineapple
  • 1½ tablespoons lucuma powder
  • 2 teaspoons black chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • SUMMER SCRAMBLE
  • 2½ ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs
  • 2½ ounces baby arugula
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese

Instructions

1

Prep the smoothie ingredients

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim off the ends. Coarsely chop half the cucumber; set aside the other half for another use.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems.

2

Blend the smoothie ingredients

In a blender, combine the coconut milk, cucumber, parsley, pineapple, lucuma powder, chia seeds, coconut sugar, and 1 cup ice. Season lightly with salt and blend until smooth.

Serve

Pour into glasses and serve.

1

Prep and cook the eggs

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Using a whisk or fork, lightly beat until just blended.
In a medium frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the arugula and cook until just wilted, about 30 seconds. Add the eggs and cook, stirring gently, until the eggs have just started to set, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and goat cheese and cook, stirring gently, until the eggs are just set but still moist, about 1 minute longer.

Serve

Transfer the scramble to individual plates and serve.
