Morning Inspiration: summer edition

Summer Blueberry Smoothie

Great for a hot, sunny morning. Really, I mean r e a l l y easy and r e a l l y delicious breakfast idea.
To make this beautiful and tasty smoothie, you’ll have to take some pre-frozen blueberries (they’ll taste much better if you freeze them by your own than if you buy them frozen at the grocery store) and blend them with oat milk. It will be quite nutritious and very very good!

Coconut Muesli Bowl with Fresh Fruit

Muesli Bowl

Coconut Muesli Bowl with Fresh Fruit
As I love breakfasts, I’d love to share with you my favourite morning snack ideas. One of my favourite breakfast recipe is a Muesli Bowl. It’s really easy and quick to prepare and it is so healthy and very nurtitious.
First, and the most imporant, ingredient is homemade coconut granola. It may seem a little problematic to make muesli at home, but it is really simple.
The idea of making our own granola arrived when my mom and I wanted to make a full of nurtitions, healthy one with no artifical flavours, glucose or fructose sirups and other chemichal addings which are packed in ready musli, which you can buy in grocery store. We’d started looking for a muesli recipe which could be made by us. We found a few, and after reading tons of recipes, we have created our own delicious recipe, which is loved by us and our friends who tried it. Here’s the link to my mom’s culinary blog, where the recipe is (also, because my mom’s page is written in polish, I’ll write the recipe below, so that all of you could read it, but still, It’ll be really nice if you visit her page; there’s a lot of other tasty recipes, which we can translate into english if needed 🙂 ).
Homemade Coconut Granola

To make granola you will need:

  • 350 g of oats traditional or mountain ( not instant )
  • 150 g seed and nut mix : sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, cashews , sesame paddy , almonds blanched or flakedor variant WITHOUT NUTS :
  • 500 g of oats traditional or mountain ( not instant )
    the remaining ingredients in both variants :
  • 100g grated coconut
  • 100 g coconut flakes
  • 3 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2 – 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch of salt

Stir all the ingredients expect coconut flakes in a bowl. Mix  them and spread on a baking sheet, with baking paper on it, evenly. Bake in oven preheated to 180C or 360F for 20 minutes. Then, add coconut flakes, stir, spread evenly again and bake for 15-20 minutes, antil golden brown or beige. Be careful not to overbake your muesli flakes, it’s easy to make it happen.
Your granola it’s ready! Wait until it cool down to the room temperature. Crush the parts which have sticked together. And thet’s basically it! Your granola is ready to eat! It should be crispy and crunchy, not chewy like before baking. To storage it, we like to keep them in pretty jars. It’s useful and also really decorative. Enjoy!
To serve the muesli bowl, add whatever addings you like! I highly recommend natural yogurt and homemade jam, vanilla yogurt or any other creamy thing you prefere. Then, some seasonal fruits like raspberries and blueberries. And voila! Have fun with trying different fruits, nuts, chocolate chips, yogurt, creamy cheese and other stuff!
