How to make brekkie bowls that are quick, healthy and delicious
Aussies like to call breakfast ‘brekkie’ and I like to call anything in a bowl that I eat for breakfast, a brekkie bowl.
That incorporates smoothie bowls, acai bowls, porridge or oatmeal bowls, and really anything else that you eat from a bowl at breakfast.
Brekkie bowls for me are pretty much the best thing about breakfast. As I’m sure you know, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day.
And usually, the simpler, the better. My recipes are mostly quick, and easy, but they’re also healthy and great tasting.
Call these bowls what you like, I eat them a lot, and not always for breakfast! They’re great post workout, or just as an easy lunch or dinner too.
How to make a basic brekkie bowl
Keep the base simple by mixing a few spoonfuls of Greek yoghurt, with some honey and vanilla extract directly in a bowl.
Then top it with a handful or two of muesli or granola, some fresh or dried fruit, and your favourite nuts & seeds.
It’s so easy to have a different bowl every day, just by swapping around the fruit, nuts, seeds and muesli or granola that you use.
Tips to add variety to your brekkie bowls
Sometimes I do get out my NutriBullet and use a few more ingredients for a more traditional smoothie bowl.
When you’re blending, be sure to use frozen fruit for a thick, creamy consistency.

3 SUMMER BREKKIE BOWLS
In Summer, you can blend your smoothie and then freeze it in popsicle moulds. I find this is an ideal treat when I’m hot and sweaty after the gym or a run.
Now here’s the best tip – you don’t have to miss out if you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to eat before you leave home.
Just blend up your smoothie in a portable shaker bottle, throw some muesli, or a handful of nuts & seeds into a container and put your bowl together later.
