I love smoothies and I almost end up adding any fruit or vegetable that compliments it. A bit of crunchy granola or muesli takes it notches above and the creamy smoothie that so easily blends with the chia seeds makes it irresistible not to dig in.

I particularly like the coco-nutty flavour in this smoothie and just how creamy it gets because of coconut. I got the fresh figs and strawberry from city market here in Bangalore for a steal. Figs weren’t that sweet but the strawberries sure were juicy, succulent and luscious. I usually stock up strawberry when they’re in season and freeze them. It lasts me anywhere between 6-8 months. But these were just fresh and so so juicy.

When I thought about developing this recipe, the first thing that came to my mind was the fact that a fancy breakfast may well be healthy too. And making it vegan by using plant based ingredients is even more welcome.

Strawberry and banana smoothie is too mainstream, so just a bit of change won’t hurt at all. Guess what? You could make this as a make-ahead healthy dessert for potluck parties or even a large gathering, or simply just dig in when you feel like indulging.

  • ALTERNATIVES:
  • If you don’t have fresh strawberry at home you could use just the banana or combine oats with it. 
  • If you don’t have fresh figs, use the dried ones, most household would have dried figs in the dry fruits dabba 😛 
  • If you don’t have coconut milk handy, you could extract the milk out of freshly grated coconut or just use normal milk if you’re okay without a vegan option.

Recipe Notes
  • This pudding is mildly sweet and naturally sweetened. If you wish to make it sweeter you could add honey or maple syrup.
  • You could use papaya instead of fresh figs in case it is not in season. 
  • Also, ensure that the banana, strawberries and coconut milk/cream is chilled at the time of blending so that you get a creamy and thicker consistency.
