Vegan Berry Smoothie Granola Bowl Recipe

Smoothie Bowl

You’ve probably had your fair share of green smoothies for breakfast, but if you’ve never had a smoothie bowl you are seriously missing out! Smoothie bowls are usually made up of a tasty smoothie base, a granola-type topping and sometimes fruit or nuts on top. In this case, we have a cacao-berry-spinach-smoothie base and Emmy’s delectable Cacao Coconut Super Cereal to top it off.

Emmy's Super Cereal Cacao Coconut

This Super Cereal is made up of sprouted buckwheat groats, coconut nectar, raisins, raw cacao nibs, raw almonds and coconut pieces. It’s all raw, gluten-free and gives a good protein boost to your smoothie bowl. Plus, buckwheat contains all 8 essential amino acids, is rich in magnesium and zinc, and is high in fiber.

All that sounds great on paper, but for real, this stuff is good! The berry/cacao combination is sweet with a little tartness from the berries, which are perfect because Spring is almost here. Using frozen fruits for this is essential to get a thicker smoothie, otherwise you will have a fruit soup topped with Super Cereal. While that would also be good, a thick smoothie makes this kind of like an ice cream sundae, but healthier.

So, make this recipe to start off your morning with a winning combo that will give you a boost of vitamins and minerals, plus some energy to get through the day.

Bring a dish!

Generally, there are two types of people in the world: Ones that see holiday parties as an opportunity to feel sad about how many non-vegan options there are in the world and ones that see holiday parties as the opportunity to share the vegan wealth by bringing a dish to share with non-vegans. Which one are you?

Squash and Spinach Frittata

 

Vegan Spinach and Squash Frittatas

When I think holidays, I think of dinners with my family, cooler weather, all of my favorite colors and lazy weekend brunches.

This vegan Spinach and Squash Frittata recipe featuring The Vegg will help you welcome in cozy sweaters and warm cups of coffee (with kahlua, duh). Read more…
