Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil and then pork to heated oil. Saute pork for ~3 minutes, until fragrant and slightly seared on the outside.
  2. Add green onions, onions, ginger, jalapenos, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and rest of the spice mix to the pot and saute for another 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Next add stock and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and then simmer over low heat (covered) for 15 to 18 minutes until pork and sweet potatoes are tender.
  4. While curry is cooking, blend pineapple, banana, coconut water, spinach, and lime juice in a blender until smooth. If you prefer your smoothies to be on the sweeter side, please feel free to sweeten with your preferred sweetener.
  5. Serve curry over cauliflower rice with lime wedges. Enjoy with smoothies to cut the heat!
