Ricotta Almond Tart | Healthy Breakfast and Dessert

Today I made for breakfast this delicious Ricotta Almond Tart. It’s not too sweet, light and it just melts in your mouth.

You will need some time to make this tart but it’s so worth it. I know it’s a time when nobody has time. But it’s not true. It’s all about your priorities to do what matters to you.

Papaya Berries Smoothie Bowl

Do you want a half of papaya for breakfast? Yes, please!) I so miss an island vibes, ocean, salty water on my skin.. Hawaii take me back) Of course in California we have an ocean but for the most time it’s freezing near the ocean at least in Northern Cali where we live now. There is no way you can swim on the ocean because it’s really cold. I mean reeaaally!) I’ve swum one time in Pacifica but I was wearing a surf suit)) There was 28F (14C) degree outside. And it were summer time. So I guess you got a picture)) But in Hawaii you can enjoy warm ocean and soak on the sun.

If you ever have been to Hawaii you know that a half of papaya you can find almost in each cafe for breakfast. Papaya offers not only a good taste and sense of tropics but is an excellent source of antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E have each been associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer. The healthy food could be and it should be delicious that’s for sure.

In Hawaii usually a half of papaya serves with a lemon or yogurt. My version a little bit fancier. I’ve decided to add more ingredients in it.  All you need to make my version of Papaya Smoothie Bowl:
