The “secretly” green smoothie bowl and coconut granola
It has been a while since I have posted a smoothie bowl recipe on here and you know that we can’t have that! ;) So to make up for it I bring you the recipe for a “secretly” green smoothie bowl, perfect for those who are not quite ready for green smoothies yet. This smoothie contains both spinach and avocado, but you can neither see it nor taste it because of the berries, so if you want to ease into green smoothies then this could be a good start.
And as you know a smoothie bowl just isn’t the same without toppings, so I made some coconut granola to add a little extra sweetness and crunch and it turned out so good! I am not completely sure about the measurements though since it was just something I quickly threw together, but I have tried to estimate how much I used and you can always adjust the amounts to your liking. This granola might be a little bit indulgent to some, so if you want a healthier alternative then you can try this muesli recipe that is only sweetened with apple juice.
1-2 handfuls spinach
1 cup mixed frozen berries
2 tablespoons goji berries
1/2 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon baobab powder – optional (I used this one – affiliate link)
1 teaspoon maca powder – optional (I used this one – affiliate link)
A little liquid stevia
Simply add all the ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth.
I topped it with the coconut granola (recipe below), kiwi, blueberries, passion fruit and pomegranate, enjoy!
2 cups oats
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1/2 cup sunflowerseeds
1/3 shredded coconut
1/4 cup raw coconut chips
1 tablespoon coconut sugar – optional
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons honey, melted
Coconut granola directions:
- Start by adding the oats, chopped almonds, sunflower seeds and coconut sugar to a bowl, then add the coconut oil and honey and mix well until everything is coated.
- Pour the mixture onto a pan lined with baking paper and toast it in the oven for about 20 minutes at 150 c / 300 f while stirring every 5 minutes. The granola is done when it is toasted and lightly golden.
- Let it cool and then add the shredded coconut and coconut chips and store it in an airtight jar, it should keep up to a month this way.
