Give me something that I can spin 5 ways and I'm a happy camper. I've done it with toast, avocado toast, acai bowls, smoothies, and today it's Breakfast Bowls. Specifically a breakfast yogurt bowl.
I like to keep things interesting in the mornings so I never get bored and having everything on hand to whip up these breakfast bowls is my current situation.
You'll need a few basic items to start....
First - your favorite kind of yogurt. I'm partial to anything vanilla flavored. You can go sweetened or unsweetened - whatever you're preference. If all I have it unsweetened greek yogurt on hand, I'll give it a squeeze of agave nectar on top!
Second - granola or muesli. Something to give the bowl a bit of a crunch. Pick your favorite brand and go for it! I've been using the Kellogg's Muesli and love it.
Third - Fruit! I keep things interesting by switching up the fruit I add into my breakfast bowl every morning. Sometimes I go with my childhood favorite for a strawberry banana situation. I'll get tropical with mangos and kiwis, summery with cherries and peaches... feel free to get creative! Here are my 5 favorites for you to try at home!
raspberries / blueberries / your favorite kind of yogurt / Granola or Muesli
banana / strawberries / chia seeds / your favorite kind of yogurt / Granola or Muesli
peaches / cherries / blackberries / your favorite kind of yogurt / Granola or Muesli
Kiwi / Mango / shredded coconut / your favorite kind of yogurt / Granola or Muesli
torched mini marshmallows / strawberries / shaved dark chocolate / your favorite kind of yogurt / Granola or Muesli

This is pure deliciousness with all the fruits and toppings.
What kind of granola wold you suggest if I am planning to do the #pieceofcake detox??
Ohhh I think I'd go for the summer bowl. Juicy, ripe peaches > all fruit!
These are just absolutely gorgeous Gaby! I am ready to do these for dinner right now!!
Amazing way to start out breakfast! Super healthy, super delicious!
I love all of these!! Such a great way to start the morning!! And they double as lunch sometimes!!
What a beautiful presentation of healthy breakfast food, I would love to eat each of them! Do you have any tips on how to slice a mango so neatly?
yes!! first - you need a super sharp knife! then you just peel the mango, slice off a large piece, and then thinly slice it into 1/8 inch pieces and fan it out accordingly!
Thank you so much for the tip! I will give it a try - hope it looks as beautiful as yours!
Now these are how you do breakfast!
Would I be greedy if I asked for one of each for breakfast?! It's too hard to choose!!
