Peak-season strawberries blended with protein-rich Greek yogurt and chia seeds help kick-start your morning. And an easy salsa of cherry tomatoes and fresh basil on scrambled eggs will give you even more reason to hop out of bed.

Ingredients

  • STRAWBERRY-MINT SMOOTHIES
  • ¼ pound strawberries
  • Fresh mint
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • Maple-vanilla blend (maple syrup - vanilla extract)
  • 1 tablespoon black chia seeds
  • EGGS WITH TOMATO-BASIL SALSA
  • 2½ ounces cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs

Chef's Tip: Instead of glasses, pour the smoothie mixture into ice pop molds and freeze for a healthy frozen summer treat.


Instructions

1

Prep the smoothie ingredients

  • Remove the green hulls from the strawberries; cut the berries in half.
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems.

2

Blend the ingredients

In a blender, combine the coconut milk, yogurt, maple-vanilla blend, strawberries, mint leaves, chia seeds, and 1 cup ice. Lightly season with salt and blend until smooth.

3

Serve

Pour into glasses and serve.

1

Make the tomato-basil salsa

  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; cut the leaves into thin strips.
In a small bowl, stir together the tomatoes, basil, and balsamic vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2

Prep and cook the eggs

  • 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 small frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Add the eggs and cook, stirring gently, until just set but still moist, 2 to 3 minutes.

3

Serve

Transfer the scramble to individual plates. Garnish with the tomato-basil salsa and serve.
