HIPPIE LUNCH BOX SMOOTHIE BOWL
GUEST RECIPE BLOG WITH ELI KEATON // READ THE ORIGINAL HERE
Eating a plant based diet requires us to get our amino acids + phytonutrients from potent sources like sea algaes, hemp seeds, and bee food. I love blending mineral rich elements into my bombs + bowls to ensure I don't blow it while making food art. I have noticed that most food stylists are drawn to making sweet-based creations. Maybe because of the colors, what we associate cognitively with something being sweet, or because culturally something sweet is such a delicacy and has always been taught to us as being a treat. This cultural element inspires higher reception via social media platforms. So here it is, me taking advantage of the beauty fresh treats offer!
Most people have an extreme mineral deficiency without even knowing it....we have some vitamins....a lot of protein....and tons of carbohydrates in our diet. What we lack is the right kinds of fat and minerals! I constantly have nuts soaking and dehydrating in my kitchen because I use them for almost all of my alchemical potions + treats. They are such an awesome, versatile way to get this stuff into our system. Without soaking though, we aren't given access to the bounty held inside that nourishes our brain + strengthens our bones + cleanses our skin organ.

3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons maqui berry + 1 tsp sea salt mixed together.
Process walnuts down to a fine crumble.
Add the dates + peanut butter + cacao + sea salt until a dough like consistency forms.
Roll into one inch balls and flatten to create 12 or so flattened discs (mints). Set in freezer while you make the coating.
Whisk together melted coconut oil + peanut butter + maple syrup together until well combined.
Take frozen discs and dunk each side until fully coated. Pop back in the freezer. After 10 minutes, dunk a second time for the second coating.
While your cookie icing is still wet, sprinkle the maqui berry sea salt mixture on each of the cookies.
Freeze another 10 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight glass container in freezer.
