Heat a small saucepan over a medium heat and add the coconut oil and honey. After 2 minutes, add the rolled oats and stir continuously until the oats are coated. Add in the chopped dates, nuts and sprinkle of sea salt, and continue to stir for 5 minutes until the oats begin to brown. Then, set to one side.
In the meantime, add the banana, mango, frozen cranberries, nut butter, and milk to a blender, and mix until smooth. Go easy on the milk as you don’t want the mix to be too runny, so add it in gradually depending how thick you want the smoothie to be.
Leave the smoothie to sit for 3 minutes, and prepare your toppings.
Pour the smoothie into a bowl and allow to sit for another minute. This will ensure that the toppings sit properly and don’t sink into the smoothie. Add your fruit toppings & granola on top, make it look pretty and you have a lovely granola smoothie bowl!
PS. You’ll probably have some leftover granola, depending how much you use in your bowl. Why not enjoy it with some greek yoghurt and honey?
