Ingredients


1/2 medium Banana
2 tbsp Coconut milk ((unsweetened kind is best))
1/2 cup Frozen mango
3 cube(s) Ice cubes
1/2 cup Red lentils, raw (to make 1 cup cooked)
1 cup Water (from cooking lentils)
1/2 cup Water (to add to (diluted) coconut milk)

Instructions


For cooking lentils: cook on a stovetop, using 1.5 cups of liquid water to 1/2 cup of dry lentils. Be sure to use a large enough saucepan as the lentils will double or triple in size. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat and simmer until they are tender. For whole lentils, cook time is typically 15-20 minutes.

Once the lentils are cooked, let cool and then add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and raw cacao. Enjoy!
