Pink Lady® Smoothie Bowl with Granola Topping

If there is anything that is likely to cheer you up on a dreary morning, then it is a colourful smoothie bowl! People often pass up apples for their smoothies in favour of softer fruit, but Pink Lady® apples make a fantastic addition to a beautiful pink smoothie bowl.

Serves 2

Ingredients

For the granola:

  • 8 tbsp porridge oats
  • 2 tbsp Brazil nuts
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp flax seed

For the smoothies:

  • 2 Pink Lady® apples
  • 100g (3.5 oz) vegan yoghurt
  • 2 handfuls strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup

Method

  1. To make the granola, first chop the Brazil nuts into small pieces.
  2. Toast the Brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and oats in a dry frying pan for about 3-4 minutes or until you can start to smell the fragrance of the nuts
  3. Add the coconut oil, syrup and cranberries and toast, stirring frequently until the pumpkin seeds are starting to pop
  4. Turn out onto a plate to cool. Once cool, break up into clusters
  5. For the smoothie, core the apples but leave the peel on. Chop the banana and hull the strawberries. Place them all in a blender along with the yoghurt and agave and blend until smooth
  6. Pour into bowls, top with slices of apple and some granola. Enjoy!
