It is a real struggle for me to eat breakfast. I have to be at work at 7:30 am, so I leave the house at 6:45 am. It’s just too early. My brain will not allow me too settle on eating anything that early. The crazy thing is, as soon as I get to my desk I am starving. Not just hungry, but down right hangery!! But on the weekend, I go in big! I make some wonderful fruit filled creations for myself. Let me show you a few.
I had a smoothie one morning, made of spinach, mixed berry blend, ripened banana with tart cherry juice and coconut water. It came out pretty thick, so immediately I thought of all those beautiful smoothie bowl creations I see all over Instagram. “Can I do that?”, I thought. “Of course I can!” I poured it in a bowl added some chia seeds, kiwi, banana, gogi berries and some granola. Yum Yum!!
I loved yogurt as a non-vegan and have had the hardest time finding a good vegan yogurt. That is until I found Almond Dream Coconut flavored yogurt. I always add a tablespoon of chia seeds, mix it all up and but it back in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. This day I added it to a bowl and loaded it with fresh peaches, strawberries and bananas. Plus pumpkin seed granola with almonds for some texture.
I always have ripened frozen bananas in my freezer. Mostly for smoothies, but now i make lots of Banana Nice Cream. How genius is it to turn frozen bananas into a full on desert breakfast?! This morning I added blueberries and vegan protein powder to my bananas. Topped with some coconut flakes, almonds, gogi berries, chia seeds and granola with raisins. So Freaking Delish!!
What is your favorite breakfast bowl?
