In 2020, breakfast is no longer about the humble toast and cereal. It’s about getting an extra health kick by eating what foodies are now referring to as “smoothies in a bowl.” Three big breakfast trends if you will, have always been the Acai Bowl, the Chia Pudding Bowl, and the Savoury Oatmeal Bowl. And though they are stuff in bowls; each one is chock full of extra nutrients, fresh fruit and vitamins (and they look a lot more Instagram-worthy to boot). Scroll for three easy recipes that will make breakfast time a whole lot more interesting
– 100g acai
– 1 small frozen banana
– 3 frozen strawberries
– 240ml unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
– 1tbsp protein powder of choice
– – banana, sliced
– 1tbsp coconut flakes
– 5 strawberries, sliced
– 25g or a small handful of berries (I use blueberries)
Whack acai, banana, strawberries, almond milk and protein powder in a blender; puree until smooth. Pour into a bowl and add the coconut flakes and fruit toppings.
Tip: For an extra hint of sweetness, sprinkle a drop of honey over the top before digging in.
Chia Pudding Bowl
– 240g plain low-fat Greek yoghurt
– 120ml unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
– 1tbsp chia seeds
– – tsp ground cinnamon
– 1tsp peanut butter
– 50g blueberries
– 1tbsp granola
Whack yoghurt, almond milk, chia seeds and cinnamon in a medium bowl and whisk. Cover and chill overnight. Add the toppings when ready to eat.
