By Estela Cockrell
Pistachio & Greens Smoothie
¼ cup pistachios soaked in filtered water overnight
¾ cup filtered water
1 cup baby spinach
1 tbs Welleco greens
2 frozen bananas
2x 100g frozen young coconut pouches or 1/4 cup flaked coconut
1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
Drain the soaked pistachios and add the ¾ cup cold filtered water and blend until smooth (you could also use 1 cup almond milk or coconut milk instead).
Add the baby spinach, WelleCo Super Elixir, frozen bananas, coconut and vanilla and blend until smooth.
Pour the smoothie into 1 large or 2 small serving bowls, top with Spiced Coconut Granola and fresh fruit like kiwifruit, dragon fruit, blueberries and blackberries.
Spiced Coconut Granola
3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup rolled oats
1 ½ cup quinoa flakes
¼ cup chia seeds
1 tbs vanilla powder or extract
2 tsp cardamom ground
2 tsp turmeric ground
1 ½ tbs cinnamon
2 tbs coconut oil
¾ cup pure maple syrup
Pinch flaked sea salt
Pre-heat your oven to 170 degrees celcius.
Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined.
Divide the mixture onto two paper lined baking trays and place into the oven.
Cook the granola for 25-30 mins, stirring the granola halfway through the cooking time.
Once cooked and golden brown, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
Use as a delicious crunchy topping for smoothie bowls, or on its own with fresh fruit and nut milk. The granola will stay fresh in an airtight jar for a couple of weeks.
