In the midst of a glorious Colorado spring—family visits, burgeoning chard, lightning storms, open Old Town patios—I’ve got the biochemistry blues… low Vitamin D stores from sitting in a window-less, summer-less classroom with projections of phenylalanine.

In need of sunnier mornings, I’ve started listening to surf video soundtracks and swapping French Roast for a bright Costa Rica blend. Encinitas surf trip in 6 weeks, so I’ve replaced bland breakfasts for surfers’ sundaes to lift my sea spirit and begin bikini body preparation.

Huckleberry Thinn’s Surfers’ Sundae

sundae 3

1 serving Chobani plain Greek yogurt

Unsweetened shredded coconut

1 spoonful chia seed

1 handful raw almonds

½ banana, sliced

1 speer fresh pineapple, sliced

½ mango, sliced

sundae 2

Proof that pretty food can induce happy emotions—and that you can make yogurt glow without granola—surfers’ sundae will shift landlocked mornings to moods of love and lounge. The tart yogurt brings life to the pineapple’s purity, mango’s mellowness and banana’s creaminess for a sunrise you’ve only tasted on vacation.

What’s more—greek yogurt (especially plain Chobani) contains 18 grams of protein. That’s more than 2 eggs. A protein-rich breakfast will provide sustenance, enhanced energy and clear concentration—necessary for D-Street day dreams.
