Do you ever find that you run low on lots of cupboard staples at once? This happens to me in most aspects of my life; toiletries, make up, cleaning products and key food store cupboard ingredients all seem ready to run out at the same time! Disaster!
But the silver lining to recently running low on several of the grains I like to use regularly is coming up with my multigrain smoothie bowls. By using a small amount of each grain you get more varied nutrition and textures in the one bowl. These are great versions of smoothies that can either be drunk on the go or eaten from a bowl with toppings. Because the grains have been soaked and blended they’re easy to digest but offer a lot of fibre making them so filling!
Pum’s Multigrain Blueberry Smoothie Bowl
- 2 tbsp. oat bran
- 2 tbsp. quinoa
- 2 tbsp. buckwheat
- 1 tsp. powdered ginger
- 1 tsp. vanilla essence
- 1 tbsp. honey (and extra for drizzling if desired)
- 1 cup almond milk
- frozen fruit (I used a few blackberries and a generous handful of blueberries)
- Combined all ingredients in a bowl and stirred well to mix. Leave mixture overnight to soak.
- In the morning whizz up in a blender to a smooth consistency.
This is the recipe for the base bowl. I like to top with some extra oat bran and my quinoa nut granola.
Something about waking up to a breakfast like this makes me feel like I’ve given myself a right good treat, when really it couldn’t be easier. It’s just so pretty!
