Frozen Banana Smoothie with Granola & Blueberry

RECIPE OVERVIEW

The granola can be made in advance and will keep for two weeks in an airtight container. It’s a healthy alternative to cereal and is full of flavour and nutrients. It can also be eaten with Greek yogurt. If you’re fond of it, make big batches. 

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 2 tbsp Almond Butter
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 50 g Hazelnuts
    roughly chopped
  • 100 g Jumbo Oats
  • 1 zest Lemon
  • 4 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 100 ml Maple Syrup
  • 50 g Sunflower Seeds
  • 50 g SuperValu Goodness Pumpkin Seeds
  • 50 g SuperValu Goodness Walnuts
    roughly chopped
For the Granola:
  • 50 g Coconut Oil
For the Smoothie:
  • 4 large Banana
    chopped and frozen

Method

  1. Blend all the ingredients for the smoothie in a food processor or blender until smooth. Pour into an airtight container and put in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight, until set.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup together in a small saucepan set over a low heat, but don’t allow it to boil. Mix together all the remaining ingredients for the granola in a large bowl, then pour the coconut and maple mix on top, stirring to coat the oats, nuts and seeds evenly. Spread out on the lined tray in an even layer and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, turning halfway through.
  4. While the granola is cooking, put all the ingredients for the compote in a small saucepan set over a medium heat. Lightly mash with the back of a spoon and simmer for 10 minutes, until the liquid is syrupy and the blueberries have softened.
  5. To serve, put a scoop of the frozen smoothie into a glass or jar, sprinkle over the granola and top with blueberry compote.
