{Vegan + Paleo} Smoothie Bowls

My mom came to visit in December toting a hometown favourite, granola from Pure Vanilla Bakery & Cafe.  I have ample warm, fuzzy, soul-filling memories in their cafe; from coffee dates with my mom to sitting on their patio with three of my nearest, dearest education friends, dreaming about our futures. So their granola is a little taste of home every time.  I decided to flex some creative muscles in how to make the most of my coveted granola; yogurt and granola just isn’t good enough.  Instead I whipped some smoothie bowls, whcih were fast, simple and perfect.  They’re also whole 30, paleo and vegan approved. Enjoy!

Smoothie Bowls


  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup  frozen fruit  (I used strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and mango)
  • 2 large handfuls greens (spinach or kale, Swiss chard or a mix of all of them)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups water (can sub for almond milk if you wish it to be creamy)
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (optional: skip if doing whole 30)
  • Topping of your choice. I like to mix is up, some of my favorite toppings are:
    • fresh fruit (kiwi, strawberries, bananas, berries etc.)
    • nuts (sliced almonds, crushed walnuts, pecans etc.)
    • seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, flax, hemp etc.)
    • unsweetened, shredded coconut
    • granola (obviously)
    • for additional topping information check out #smoothiebowls on insta


  1. Place all the banana, frozen fruit, greens and water  in the bowl of a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a bowl.
  3. Top with whatever you like.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
