Blend the smoothie bowl ingredients

In a blender, combine the coconut milk, maple syrup, mango, pineapple, turmeric, and half the chia seeds. Season lightly with salt and blend until smooth.

Prep the oats

The night before:
  • Divide the cacao nibs into two equal portions; set aside half for garnish.
In a medium bowl or jar, combine the oats, almond milk, maple syrup, cocoa-cinnamon blend, and half the cacao nibs. Season lightly with salt and stir to combine.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.


Finish the oats

The next morning:
