Smoothie: Gluten-free Melon Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie breakfast bowls are big all over the net right now. I’m late catching on, I have to admit! Better late than never, I guess.

I am used to drinking my smoothies out of a glass, usually through a straw, – or not. Lately, though, with summer here,  I’ve seen so many pretty, colourful and healthy creations being posted online, that I decided to try my own.

So, here it is. My first Smoothie Bowl.

Melon Smoothie Bowl with Granola

(naturally gluten-free, egg free, corn free, sugar free, oat free, soy free, nut free)

  1. Cut the melon in half, scoop out the seeds. Peel the melon and cut up the flesh
  2. Peel the bananas (if not already done)
  3. Place the melon, banana, yoghurt, and water/juice or coconut water into a blender.  I used pineapple flavoured coconut water.
  4. Pulse, then blend for about 2 minutes, until thick and creamy
  5. Pour into two bowls
  6. Top with gluten-free granola, or other seeds and nuts
  7. Grab two spoons, and dig in!

Once you’ve made your Melon Smoothie Bowl, top it with fresh fruit slices, then sprinkle gluten-free granola on top, or leave it plain.
