This delicious new breakfast recipe came to me in my dream state and I woke up with an inner knowing that I had to try it. As you may know, I'm writing this at about 22 weeks pregnant and typically follow the messages in my dreams very seriously. I follow them even more seriously at this stage of my life, as I've found my spirit baby tries to communicate with me mostly through the dream state. So, you could almost say that perhaps she is the one who created this recipe for us 💖
Anyway, I elected to combine my favorite flavors including coconut, cherry, and dragon fruit with the addition of a yogurt and collagen base for extra protein and gut health + hormonal support. I would also like to make note that organic coconut yogurt comes with a host of real health benefits, much different than what greek yogurt has attempted to market itself as. If you are consuming yogurt, I encourage you to try to consume yogurt that is not made from conventional dairy, is organic, and ideally includes live cultures aka yogurt you can't find at most grocery stores (sadly).
You'll see I recommend a cocojune yogurt in this recipe, however, for optimal and elevated health benefits I recommend Cocoyo Yogurt. I've listed out my preferred toppings, but feel free to get creative and make this your own!

In a high-speed blender, blend coconut yogurt, collagen, and desired amount of frozen cherries and dragon fruit. *Consistency will vary based on amount of frozen fruit used (hint: intuitively select amounts) and you may need to add a splash of a plant-based milk if necessary.
Add blended base mixture into a bowl and top with desired amount of blueberries, bananas, bee pollen, chia seeds, and hemp hearts! Enjoy!
