  • pinch of sea salt

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds


  1.  Whisk together oat milk, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.

  2.  Add the chia seeds and stir to combine.
  3. Let the mixture sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (mixing again halfway through) until the chia seeds have plumped and the pudding has thickened.

  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil

  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup

  • Pinch of pink himalayan salt

  • 1 tsp dried cranberries

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

  2. Mix the almonds, coconut, hemp & sunflower seeds with the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and salt.

  3. Spread out the granola mix and bake, mixing often, to ensure the mix is completely golden brown and crunchy (about 10-15 minutes)

  4. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  5. Once cooled, mix in the dried fruit.  

Assemble the smoothie
