So, which breakfast bowl is your go-to morning favorite?
If you spend your mornings rushing around, trying to get out the door on time, you need a breakfast that’s quick, delicious, and nutritious.
Luckily, you can whip up this smoothie bowl in 5 minutes flat!
You’ll need a frozen banana, a cup and a half of strawberries, and a half-cup of unsweetened coconut milk.
Then just throw them in a blender and blend them until they’re smooth.
Pour them in a bowl and top with berries, chia seeds, more banana slices, or whatever else you want.
It’s a sweet, speedy way to start the day.
This one takes a little longer to make – about 30 minutes – but if you love chocolate, you’ll want to give it a try.
It combines the light, earthy flavors of toasted quinoa, almond, and coconut milk with the rich sweetness of dark chocolate, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
There’s even a dash of sea salt thrown in for contrast.
If you’re looking for a more savory way to start your morning, try this breakfast burrito bowl.
You’ll start with a base of perfectly seasoned rice, and then you’ll add your toppings.
You can go as heavy or as light as you want. As for me, I like to throw it all in there – salsa, guacamole, black beans, corn, peppers, sour cream, cheese, and more.
Top it off with a couple of fried eggs, and enjoy.
Here’s another 5-minute recipe for those of us who are always rushed in the mornings.
There’s no cooking involved. You’ll just start with yogurt and pile everything on top of it.
There are a few different variations, including the raspberry chocolate yogurt bowl, the peanut butter and jelly yogurt bowl, the triple berry yogurt bowl, and the tropical yogurt bowl.
Go wild, and try them all!
This mostly frozen treat is a cool, refreshing way to wake up in the mornings.
It includes milk, yogurt, frozen acai puree, and whatever fruits, berries, nuts, or granola you want to add to it.
You’ll have it done in just a few minutes, and you can easily adjust the recipe to accommodate your whole family at once.
Packed with potassium, vitamin C, protein, and healthy fats, this smoothie bowl will have you up and ready to face the day in no time.
Plus, it’s super easy to make.
Don’t forget to freeze your banana the night before.
The following day, all you’ll do is blend everything, pour it into a bowl, and add your toppings.
Avocado breakfast bowls take about 20 minutes to make, but they’re packed full of protein and are savory, garlicky, tasty morning treats.
They’re an entire breakfast plate – avocado, greens, eggs, and bacon – rolled into one dish.
Don’t forget the Everything But the Bagel seasoning, though. That’s the secret ingredient that gives it all the flavor.
This recipe calls for potatoes, tomatoes, spinach, avocado, eggs, and feta cheese.
But the beauty of savory breakfast bowls is that you can fill them with pretty much whatever you like.
Some mornings, I add a little ground sausage to mine.
Other mornings, I leave out the salsa and avocado and throw in some leftover dinner meat to make more of a hash-like bowl.
It’s your breakfast; do whatever you like to make it just right.
I love this bowl because I can pile it full of all my favorite tropical fruits and berries and have a beautiful, colorful breakfast bowl that’s ready in 10 minutes.
My kids like to call this “salad for breakfast,” and I don’t bother correcting them.
After all, that’s a pretty accurate description.
Start with a bed of baby spinach, add diced red onions, chopped toast, sour cream, eggs, guacamole, and the other seasonings.
It is kind of like having salad for breakfast, but it tastes wonderful and is ready to eat in 10 minutes.
I’m a sucker for dishes that are colorful and beautiful, and this breakfast bowl is both.
It takes about 15 minutes to make, and I have it way more often than I probably should just because it’s so lovely.
It’s also super yummy and combines the tropical fruitiness of mangoes, peaches, and raspberries with the sweetness of honey and light coconut milk.
It’s smooth, creamy, and incredible.
Plus, the chia seeds and granola I add to it make me feel like I’m doing something good for my body! Win-win!
This rugged country breakfast takes 35 minutes to fix and contains everything your cowboy could want.
The crispy bacon, cheesy potatoes, garlicky eggs, and avocado make an excellent combination.
If you’re looking for a breakfast bowl made with more traditional favorites, this is the one for you.
It combines plenty of breakfast staples – bacon, eggs, cheese, and oatmeal – into one bowl of deliciousness.
Don’t forget to add the chives. They really set the whole recipe off for me.
Want a healthy, vegan-friendly, gluten-free dish that’s high in fiber and ready in 10 minutes?
This peanut butter banana oatmeal is the answer. Seriously, it makes my mouth water just looking at it.
The cinnamon oatmeal serves as a warm, thick base.
Once you mix in the peanut butter and top it with bananas, chia seeds, and sea salt, it becomes a meal you won’t want to miss.
You’ll also drizzle the whole thing with maple syrup for an added bit of sweetness that just can’t be topped.
This is one of my all-time favorite fall recipes.
It’s almost like a healthier, guilt-free way to eat apple pie without actually eating apple pie. It’s also easy to make.
Simply simmer your apples, sugar, raisins, and water for about 16 to 18 minutes. Then, add in your cinnamon and nutmeg for flavor.
Once it’s done, pour the mixture over your yogurt and add more cinnamon and a few apple slices and nuts for added crunchiness.
It’s the perfect treat.
This is the grits dish for people who don’t like grits.
Once you add in all the extra toppings – salsa, eggs, onions, and cheese – you won’t even taste the grits underneath.
Best of all, the recipe only takes about 30 minutes to make.
I never considered using bread bowls to make breakfast dishes until I came across this recipe.
Now, they’re a favorite in my house, and I make them at least a few times each month.
They’re almost like tiny breakfast quiches; only they have a lot more going on than a traditional quiche.
You’ll stuff each miniature roll with bacon, cheese, onions, eggs, and spices.
The amount of flavor packed into each itty bitty mouthful is almost unbelievable.
If you’ve never had these, give them a try. I have no doubt they’ll quickly rise to the top of your breakfast favorites list.
This recipe for the green smoothie bowl has it all.
It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, and safe for those on the paleo diet. It’s also lovely and full of color.
It has a great tropical flavor, and it’s packed full of stuff that’s good for you, so you won’t have to feel guilty about indulging in it.
If you like oatmeal and bananas, you cannot beat this oatmeal recipe for breakfast. It’s wonderful.
Even better, it uses no refined sugar, requires only six ingredients (sans toppings), and you can make it in 25 minutes!
If you know how to cook oatmeal, you can make this one with ease.
I love cinnamon apple yogurt bowls so much, but these are even better.
They, too, are like eating apple pies for breakfast, but they also have the added creaminess of frozen bananas.
Most people who try this smoothie bowl compare it more to a caramel apple from the county fair than an apple pie.
Either way, it’s 100% apple-y, cinnamon-y, and nutmeg-y goodness.
Best of all, it’s ready to eat in 5 minutes or less! You just can’t beat that.
