Oat, Banana & Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

Processed with Snapseed.

If you haven’t caught on to the rage, it’s not too late to start – we just have! Trade in a glass of smoothie in the morning for a bowl of it and use it as a canvas for fruits, nuts, seeds and herbs – excellent fun! This may be our first, but it’s certainly not going to be our last!

Ingredients

1/2 cup oats (cooked according to packet instructions)

2 ripe bananas

1 cup blueberries (we used frozen ones as we wanted a cold smoothie)

1/2 cup almond milk (you can use regular milk too)

1 tbsp greek yoghurt

Grated rind of a medium orange (optional)

Method

Cook the oats according to packet instructions – we used almond milk for the oats.

Break up the bananas and put them in a blender. Add the blueberries and the almond milk and blitz it on medium till everything is blended together.

Next, add the cooked oats, the yoghurt and rind. Blitz again on medium till combined. Empty it all out into a bowl and unleash your creativity!

Rose & Pistachio Lassi.jpg

Lassi is a popular Indian yoghurt drink, commonly served with meals and perfect for hot summer days . It’s traditionally made with just sugar but a common variation is making it with mango – which is absolutely yummy. Here, we’ve made it with rose syrup ,pistachio and a little honey which is a nice way to jazz it up if you’re having people over or if you just feel like putting  a little more effort into it. Chill well before serving!

Makes 2 small glasses

Ingredients

300g plain unsweetened yoghurt

3 tsp pistachio granules

6 cardamom pods

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tbsp honey

For the rose syrup :

1 and half tsp rosewater

4 tbsp water

3 tbsp sugar

To garnish:

A few rose petals

1/2 teaspoon pistachio granules

2 cinnamon sticks

Method

Grind the cardamom pods in a mortar , discard the green shells and grind the black seeds into a powder

Make the rose syrup; In a small saucepan, mix the rosewater, water and sugar just until the sugar melts.

Place the yoghurt, rose syrup, pistachio granules, honey, milk & cardamom pods in a blender and blend until smooth. 

Chill in the refrigerator and serve garnished with pistachio granules, rose petals and cinnamon stick as a stirrer. If you need to serve it immediately, pour it over crushed ice.
