Mango and Banana Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are a quick and easy way to make a nutritious, vegan snack. I love making new smoothie bowl creations and decided to include my Vegan Granola recipe as a crunchy topping. The recipe makes a large batch, so you can use some for this smoothie bowl and binge eat the rest whilst binge watching your favourite show. It isn't a very sweet, but you're sweet enough, right?

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped frozen or fresh mango
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup vegan milk (I like vegan coconut milk)
  • 3 cups raw mixed nuts
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup puffed quinoa
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 cup mixed dried fruit (I use a mix of cranberries, crimson raisins, sultanas and goji berries)
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 flax egg
  • 3-4 tbs maple syrup, or as little/as much as you like
  • Various toppings, such as berries, chia seeds, coconut or passionfruit

 

Instructions

  • Blitz mango, banana and milk in a blender until smooth, and place in the refrigerator
  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius
  • To make granola: mix nuts, oats, puffed quinoa, cinnamon, chia seeds, dried fruit, applesauce and flax egg in a large baking dish and place in oven
  • Mix granola every twenty minutes to ensure it cooks evenly, and after about 15 minutes, add maple syrup
  • Cook for approximately 45 minutes or until nuts have browned, and leave to cool before using
  • To make smoothie bowl: pour liquid into a bowl, top with granola and any other toppings, and serve!

Notes

  • This recipe makes a large batch of granola, so you'll have plenty left for all your other smoothie bowls!
