Fruit, Yoghurt and Muesli Breakfast Bowl

·

Warmer months are often accompanied with a craving for light and fresh meals in the AM. This fruit, yoghurt and muesli breakfast bowl fits the brief well.

All that’s required to whip up this easy-peasy breakfast idea is a fruit or two, a few heaped dollops of yoghurt, a few heaped tablespoons of muesli and nuts, and a few teaspoons of seeds. For good measure, a drizzle of honey and sprinkle of cinnamon is always a welcomed addition…yum.

Nutritional Low Down

This bowl encourages a bit more nutritional balance compared to your standard cereal/muesli + milk.

Yoghurt, nuts and seeds, will bump up the protein and fat content – these kinds of nutrients are slow to be digested which will help you feel full for longer into the morning. They’ll also diversify the micronutrient content; which are iddy-biddy nutrients vital for good health, like calcium, zinc, vitamin E and magnesium. The more diverse our food range, the easier to get in a wider variety of nutrients.

Easy-As

It’s a quick breakfast to prepare, not really requiring much time beyond adding everything to a bowl (or into a screw-top jar/Tupperware container to take to work). It’s also infinitely variable…switch up the fruit, type of nuts, seed and muesli as you please. A good way to use up any random accumulation starting to build up in the pantry!

    Love this recipe! I downsized it for an afternoon snack (with bananas, bluebs, walnuts, and nibs and tahini) and it’s all naturally sweet YUM!
