I love granola for breakfast, especially with some vegan yogurt or as a topping on my smoothie bowl. When I visited Edinburgh recently, a cute cafe there even used it as a topping on their porridge which was an amazing revelation to me. The only problem is most shop bought granola has cow’s milk, gluten or white sugar in, and I eat none of these.
This toastie is so simple yet so satisfying, and it’s been a great success at The Plant Academy vegan cafe. We thought we’d share with you how to make it so you can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch (at The Plant Academy, of course), and dinner…
Want to know how to make our epic green smoothie? It’s simpler than you might think… I like to use orange juice and baobab in this because the greens and spirulina in this smoothie are high in iron, but it’s difficult for the body to absorb plant based sources of iron unless you consume it with vitamin C rich foods. Orange juice and baobab are great for that but also taste super yummy. Ingredients (serves 1) 1/2 cup of your favourite plant milk (This is so yummy with cashew milk) 1/2 cup good quality orange juice, or 1 large orange juiced. 1/2 banana 1/2 apple 1 small handful kale 1 small handful spinach 1 heaped tsp spirulina 1 heaped tsp baobab Wizz it all up in a high powered blender for 1 min, pour in to your favourite cup, and enjoy! What do you like to put in your green smoothies? Let me know… Ellie
Do you love mexican food as much as me? I’m pretty sure you do as we sell more tex mex items than anything else. One thing I love to make for dinner is burritos.
