Granola Smoothie Bowl


This yummy smoothie bowl recipe is the perfect way to enjoy a vegan-friendly breakfast on a spring-summer morning. Having this breakfast will give you the nutritional boost needed to start a productive day. On my travels in Bali, I decided to order my first ever smoothie bowl, I was amazed how a cold blend of berries and milk can imitate the exact taste of a fruity ice-cream, it was as if I was having dessert for breakfast!

When it comes to toppings I found that adding granola with fruit is a great way to add texture and extra flavour to your smoothie bowl. In this recipe I will also be showing you how to make my easy, low calorie and low sugar granola.
