Fruit, Yoghurt and Muesli Breakfast Bowl


(Updated 10/25/21)

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.

Bowl of fruit, banana, kiwifruit, muesli and seeds.

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.


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!
