Drinkable Granola Smoothie

The first recipe I am sharing is the drinkable granola smoothie.

It’s one of my personal favorite granola smoothie, because it allows me to take it on the go with me.

I don’t always have time to sit and munch on a smoothie bowl.

The second type of granola smoothie is more suitable for the weekends.

My Top Tips:

  1. Blend Granola: If you love granola, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of granola in the blender, and top the smoothies with extra granola.
  2. High-Speed Blender: If making the smoothie bowl, you have to use a high-speed blender or a food processor in order to achieve a thick consistency.
  3. Use Frozen Fruits: Frozen fruits is a must. Especially when making smoothie bowls.
