Let’s talk about you and superfoods. Everyone wants them, every supermarket’s got them, but what on earth actually constitutes a superfood? A superfood is a plant that supplies super high doses of vitamins and minerals or has the ability to act as an adaptogen—an agent that can regulate your body’s biochemical and physiological systems. 

This luscious superfood oatmeal bowl features:

• Maca powder (for regulating hormones and stimulating libido)

• Lucuma powder (for soothing tissues and nourishing skin)

• Raw coconut oil (antiviral and antifungal, plus healthy fats to support your organs)

• Vanilla bean (a natural aphrodisiac)

• Hemp seeds (high doses of omega fatty acids and plant protein)

• Cacao nibs (oxytocin stimulator—the feel good hormone)

• Spirulina (blue-green algae that provides excellent plant protein and minerals)

• Bee pollen (incredible source of vitamins and plant protein)

• Pomegranate (full of antioxidants and vitamin C)

Before you throw your hands up in the air and wonder where you’re going to get all these superfoods, know these two things: 1) Almost all of these are available at your local grocery store these days, and certainly at your local health food store. 2) You can mix and match, sub and swap, all of these as you please. 

There are no rules for superfood oatmeal—just pure superfood fun. And it’s so loaded with nutrient-dense foods that it’ll fuel you for the day. The perfect winter power breakfast.

Ingredients

Oatmeal
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups pure water
  • 1 tablespoon raw coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean or vanilla extract
  • a few sprinkles sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 1 teaspoon lucuma powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
Vanilla Hemp Milk
  • 1 cup pure water
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean or vanilla extract
  • 3-4 drops stevia or sweetener of choice, to taste
Superfood Toppings
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter or nut butter of choice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans or nut of choice
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao nibs
  • 2 teaspoons spirulina
  • 1 teaspoon hemp seeds

Directions

  1. Place oats, water, coconut oil, vanilla, and few sprinkles sea salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, another 7-9 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure no oatmeal is sticking to the bottom of the pan. 

  2. While oatmeal cooks, place all ingredients for vanilla hemp milk in a blender and blend on high until ingredients are fully incorporated and milk is smooth and frothy. Set aside.

  3. Remove oatmeal from heat when it’s thickened and oats are soft. Stir in maca, lucuma, and honey or maple syrup. Divide oatmeal into bowls and top with nut butter, chopped nuts, cacao nibs, spirulina, hemp seeds, bee pollen, and pomegranate or fruit of choice. Drizzle with extra honey or maple syrup if desired, and finish with vanilla hemp milk.
