We first spotted this smoothie bowl at a little beach café in Bali, and it’s just brimming with tropical zing. You can use whatever fresh fruit you have on hand, but do include the coconut and mint – they bring something interesting, tasty and special to the bowl.

Serves: 2


  • 10 blueberries
  • 10 strawberries
  • 10 blackberries
  • 3 tbsp natural yoghurt
  • mint leaves, to serve
  • maple syrup, to serve (optional)

For the topping:

  • 2 tbsp Midlife Granola or muesli
  • assorted fresh fruit such as banana, mango, strawberries and blueberries
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 4 tsp coconut flakes or desiccated coconut


  1. Whizz the berries and yoghurt in a blender to produce a smoothie consistency.
  2. Pour the mixture into a bowl, leaving space for the toppings, then line up the granola or muesli, fruit, chia seeds and coconut on top.
  3. Decorate with mint leaves and, if you want some extra sweetness, drizzle with a little maple syrup.
