How to Make Blueberry Smoothie Bars

Step 1

Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper. Sprinkle granola evenly on the bottom of the pan, so it covers the bottom.

Step 2

Drain cashews first, then add the soft cashews to a food processor or high-powered blender, along with the coconut cream, blending until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the processor as you go, and pulse until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3

Add bananas, and pulse until the mixture has an ice cream-like consistency. Add frozen blueberries and lemon juice, pulsing until everything is incorporated. The mixture can be as chunky or smooth as you like.

Step 4

Scoop mixture on top of granola (it will be thick!), and carefully smooth the fruit mixture evenly over granola. Top with more blueberries and toasted coconut.
