Tropical green glow bowl

Megan May's simple fresh green bowl is surprisingly delicious and satisfying. It will also get you off to a great start in the morning as the avocado is filled with good fats, vitamins and minerals, the coconut water is hydrating and the pineapple and papaya are high in enzymes.

Notes

If you don’t like the idea of using avocado, you could replace it with young coconut meat or banana. But try the avocado first – you’ll be surprised how it works perfectly here, adding great texture and balancing the sweetness of the pineapple.
