How to make a Berrylicious Breakfast Smoothie Bowl

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Apart from providing us with energy, breakfast foods are good sources of important nutrients such as calcium, iron and B vitamins as well as protein and fibre. Fruits and vegetables are great sources of the vitamins and minerals that little bodies need to fuel their day, and if those essential nutrients are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day.

However it’s not always easy to convince little tummies of the wisdom in that advice. This little colour and flavour bomb might just be the thing you need to inspire them to eat a nutritious and delicious breakfast to fuel them up for the day ahead. And there’s not really many more steps than loading up a bowl of cereal. Read on to see how just how simple it is …

For the smoothie:

  • 1 cup of frozen mixed berries
  • ½ cup of watermelon
  • 2 tablespoons of plain or vanilla yogurt

For the topping:

  • Watermelon slices
  • Kiwi Slices
  • Banana Slices
  • Grapes
  • Shredded coconut
  • Honey
  • Yoghurt
  • Muesli


  • Whizz up the frozen berries, watermelon and yogurt in a blender or food processor
  • Pour the smoothie into a bowl
  • Add fruit slices, coconut, muesli, and yoghurt and drizzle with honey


The nitty gritty:

  • Takes less than 10 minutes to make
  • These bowls are completely customisable
  • Take out the yogurt and it’s dairy free and vegan
