Even though I don’t have any kids at school age, yet, I’m trying to get my self back in a rhythm of getting up early, working out eating breakfast. The summer has just been crazy busy and the gym and eating right have been put on the back burner, and I for one can definitely tell. My body has been craving nutrients, but as busy as I am I don’t always have time to make something extravagant, so a smoothie is always an option.
The end of summer means the end of fresh berries, which means I’m using them up like crazy before they fade away till next year. This Coconut Smoothie with Fresh Berries and Granola is super easy to use and loaded with nutritious goodness! From the coconut milk, to the fresh berries to the amazing Bob’s Red Mill® Honey Oat Granola. Bob’s Red Mill Honey Oat Granola is a scrumptious and easy way to enjoy the goodness of whole grains. With just a hint of sweetness, Honey Oat Granola uses gently toasted clusters of whole grain oats to create a wholesome ready-to-eat cereal. Sweetened with honey, brown sugar and pure vanilla.
This recipe is easy to manipulate, for instance if you don’t like coconut, simply sub it out for almond milk! If you are on the go like me, it’s beneficial to add some ice cubes into this smoothie, and nothing, I mean nothing will blend up this beauty like a Vitamix, seriously worth it! Just got it, so I have to brag on it :-). I digress…
You can add a nice touch of sweetness to this recipe naturally by adding some shredded coconut. I also added in some vanilla Greek yogurt to give my smoothie a little body.
Last but not least, a big pic below for pinning!
