3 tasty (and easy) breakfast options to make in the mornings

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

Topping:

Then:

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.
