It’s not on purpose that I am posting back to back breakfast yummies, but I am so excited to share another healthy breakfast idea with you. Do you like smoothies? Who doesn’t! We are big smoothie drinkers here, sneaking all kinds of veggies into our toddler-sized smoothies, and packing our adult-sized ones with healthy greens and grains and all sorts of good for you ingredients.
This is a smoothie idea that will fit all sizes. Fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are blended together with some tangy greek yogurt and sweet orange juice to make a super quick breakfast. You could stop there – pouring it into a big glass and grabbing a straw…or you could get a little crazy and grab a spoon instead of a straw and change it into a smoothie bowl.
Topped with fresh berries and a handful of crunchy coconut granola, this smoothie turns from a breakfast on the run into a hearty-sit-down-and-take-your-time-what’s-the-rush-anyway kind of breakfast.
three berry yogurt smoothie bowl with coconut granola
makes two servings
for the smoothie:
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries
2 cups greek yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Check the consistency and if needed, thin with more water. Cover and chill until ready to use.
for the coconut granola:
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 cup shaved coconut
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon agave nectar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients and stir together completely. Place the ingredients on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown, stirring once to allow the granola to cook evenly.
Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool.
Pour the smoothie equally into two bowls. Sprinkle the granola over the smoothie and top with fresh berries.
