From the look of this scrumptious three-layered smoothie, it can seem rather daunting to make, when in actual fact it’s a bare 15-minute job and the perfect breakfast or dessert solution. It’s honestly one of the most delicious little treats we’ve come up with so far! We sauté aromatic apple pieces in butter, then coat them in a creamy vanilla yoghurt smoothie, followed by a sprinkling of crunchy spiced granola – it’s heavenly. Just like the real thing (but healthier).

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the spiced granola

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon butter or cold-pressed coconut oil
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
4 tablespoons rolled oats
4 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds

For the sautéed apple pieces

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon butter or cold-pressed coconut oil
1 cooking apple, peeled and cored
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

For the vanilla yoghurt smoothie

Quantity Ingredient
1 eating apple, cored
375g full-fat plain unsweetened greek yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla or vanilla extract

Method

  1. To make the spiced granola, melt the butter and maple syrup in a frying pan (skillet) on a medium heat. Add the spices, shortly followed by the oats and seeds. Stir to coat in the butter mixture and toast for about 5 minutes or until golden. Set aside to cool slightly while you prepare the sautéed apple pieces.
  2. Without rinsing the pan, melt the butter on a medium heat while you cut the apple into 1 cm dice. Add the spices, shortly followed by the apple pieces, and sauté for about 5 minutes or until golden, tender and fragrant. Keep warm while you prepare the vanilla yoghurt smoothie.
  3. Roughly chop the apple, add it to a blender along with the rest of the vanilla yoghurt smoothie ingredients and blend on a high speed until completely smooth.
  4. To assemble, divide the apple pieces between two medium-sized glass jars. Pour the yoghurt smoothie on top, finish with a generous sprinkling of the granola and serve. Enjoy!

Note

  • You can make the granola topping out of most grains, pseudocereals, seeds and nuts – let your imagination run wild!
