Pear and Chocolate Bowl

I’ve been having so much fun this summer creating Blast (smoothie) Bowls with fresh Michigan fruit. I have a lot of fruit stashed in the freezer, so I can keep experimenting all winter long. Many people use bananas as a base, but they are not grown in Michigan. So, in this recipe I used MI pears as the base. And, I like any excuse to have chocolate for breakfast, so I put that in too. (Again, not from Michigan, but you can find some MI based processors.)

Pear – Chocolate Blast Bowl Recipe
2 large, ripe MI pears
1 Tablespoon non-alkalized cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
½ Tablespoon chia seeds, optional as a thickener

Blend the above and pour into a bowl. Top with MI fruits and raw nuts. In the one below, I added strawberry slices, raspberries, peach slices, and sunflower nuts.

This is great as a meal, a snack, or a dessert.
