It’s not a vegan cookbook but many recipes are vegan-friendly and most are easy to convert, such as this beautiful Tropical Smoothie Bowl.

Superfood Breakfasts (DK Books)
Superfood Breakfasts is a small book that’s jam-packed with healthy breakfast recipes, nutrition advice and tips.
I love the easy-to-read writing style and visuals, making this book a pleasure to flip through and simple to understand.
It includes recipes for granola (+ “rawnola”), bars, juices, smoothies & smoothie bowls, overnight oats, breakfast loafs, porridge, pancakes, breakfast parfaits and more!
All containing superfood ingredients to give you a really healthy start to the day. There are quite a few that I’m looking forward to trying but my first choice was the Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl on pg 30.
This is my first attempt at making a smoothie making a bowl so my decorating techniques need a little work. Those papaya balls looked much prettier in my head!
As I didn’t have the suggested topping ingredients to hand, I made it up on the fly but it didn’t turn out too badly…
The actual flavour is divine! I love tropical flavours, which is why I chose to try this recipe first.
It’ sort of like eating a sorbet or ice cream for breakfast and that’s never a bad thing. The book states that this serves 2.
I think if it were served in a glass it would easily serve 2 but I used a relatively small bowl and only got enough for 1. Recipe below!
Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl
- 150 g / 5 1/2 oz frozen mango
- 75 g / 2 1/2 oz frozen pineapple
- 75 g / 2/ 1/2 oz fresh papaya
- 200 ml / 7fl oz freshly squeezed orange juice
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds
- 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
- 1 tbsp lucama powder optional
- Fresh balled melon or papaya
- Kiwi or orange slices
- Coconut flakes
- Cashew nutes
- Goji berries
- Passion fruit seeds
Put the smoothie ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor and whizz until smooth.
Pour into a medium sized bowl and arrange the toppings on the surface in stripes.
