Today on my guest post series, I am pleased to introduce you to Anyonita, who writes the blog Anyonita Nibbles and shares recipes after my own heart! They are all gluten-free. Here, she shares a very tasty, easy to make breakfast recipe which suits all types.
Hello! I’m Anyonita, author of a gluten free food blog, and today I’ll be sharing an easy breakfast recipe for you that’s gluten free, dairy free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
I have two children—a 5 year old and a 10 week old and most mornings, breakfast is just a cold cup of coffee, but on those rare days where I’ve got time, I love to sit down and scroll through Pinterest (come pin with me!) with a nice refreshing smoothie bowl. It’s a great way to get a few of your 5-a-day; plus, it’s nice to sit down to a bowl of something healthy and not sugary cereals.
Don’t worry about measuring things with this recipe, just use a 125g pot of yoghurt. Use these ingredients and measurements as a guide. Don’t be afraid to switch out one ingredient for another, or add more of something and less of another. You’re the one who has to eat this; make sure it’s how you want it!
Cashew and Gluten Free Granola Berry Smoothie Bowl
For the smoothie:
125g pot of fat free strawberry or blueberry yoghurt
2 yoghurt pots frozen berry mix (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries etc)
2 yoghurt pots full of coconut milk
Squeeze of honey (optional)
For the topping:
1 yoghurt pot full of gluten free granola
½ yoghurt pot full of pumpkin seeds
¼ yoghurt pot full of unsalted raw cashew nuts
- Put the ingredients for the smoothie in a blender in this order: frozen fruit, yoghurt, coconut milk, honey. (You want to make sure the frozen fruit is closest to the blades to ensure it blends smoothly.)
- Blend until all the ingredients are smooth. If you are using raspberries or blackberries, you may want to sieve the smoothie to get rid of the hard pips.
- Pour the smoothie into a bowl and top with the granola, seeds and cashew nuts.
- Dig in and start your morning off on the right foot!
The great thing about smoothie bowls and smoothies in general is that they are so flexible. You can use any yoghurt flavour you like and pair it with your favourite fruits. A smoothie is a fantastic way of getting your 5-a-Day all at once, too! Some of the best fruit for smoothies is: apples, pears, berries, bananas, coconut, mango, peaches, even grapes. Smoothie bowls give you the option of adding in proteins like nuts and seeds. Consider topping your smoothie with any of your favourite nuts: walnuts, pecans and almonds all make excellent options. You can also go down the seed route and top with chia seeds or linseeds to boost your vitamin intake.
