  • 1 Persian cucumber
  • Fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 6 ounces frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1½ tablespoons lucuma powder
  • 2 teaspoons black chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • SCRAMBLE:

  • 2 ounces baby arugula

Instructions

1

Make the smoothie

  • Trim the ends from the cucumber and peel if desired.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems.
In a blender, combine the coconut milk with the cucumber, parsley leaves, pineapple, lucuma powder, chia seeds, and coconut sugar. Add 1 cup ice, season lightly with salt, and blend until smooth.

2

Serve

Pour the mixture into individual glasses and serve.

1

Prep the eggs

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and season them with salt and pepper. With a whisk or fork, lightly beat until just blended.
In a 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. Pour in the eggs and cook, stirring, until the eggs have just started to set, 1 to 2 minutes. Fold in the tomatoes and goat cheese and cook, stirring, until the eggs are set but still moist, 2 to 3 minutes longer.

Serve

Transfer the scramble to individual plates and serve.
