Brekkie bowls are quick, healthy and delicious
Brekkie bowls for me are one of the best things about breakfast. As I’m sure you know, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day.
And usually, the simpler, the better. Pretty much all of my recipes are quick, easy, healthy and great tasting.
Brekkie bowls, or smoothie bowls, call them what you will. I eat them a lot, and not always for breakfast! They’re great post workout, or just as a light lunch too.
Keep the base simple by mixing Greek yoghurt, honey and vanilla extract in your bowl. Then simply top with fruit, nuts, seeds, muesli or granola mixes.
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.
Sometimes I do get out my NutriBullet and use a few more ingredients for a more traditional smoothie bowl.
When you’re blending, 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 bit – you don’t have to miss out if you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to eat before you leave home.
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.
