Smoothie for breakfast!! I had a hard time deciding between a smoothie or cereal and so I combined them in one.

In the bowl:

  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • 1 tiny banana
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt

Toppings:

  • Morning O’s
  • Chia sprinkle
  • Coconut sprinkle
  • Wild Squirrel PB – my drippiest in house

Water spiked with juice on the side

What refreshing breakfast! I was wondering… what kind of yogurt you use in your smoothies? I usually just use a banana and milk and as a base, but I imagine adding the yogurt would make it thicker and more bowl-worthy :). Have a great Monday!

The cereals are back! Smoothies works really well in the mornings. I need to start my juicing again! Enjoy your day lady :)

Your smoothies in a bowl always look so good with all the toppings on top, I still have to try one, I am afraid it will be too watery!

Watery as in water or liquidy? Just add a little less milk and it will be nice n thick

I added Morning O’s (or a similar “O” cereal) to our most recent WF list. We try to minimize cereal purchases because of the packaging (and eat homemade granola instead), but I rationalized that these were “for the baby,” literally in my case, as our 9-month-old loves the cereal crunch. The truth is that I don’t mind having them around, because I’m a fan, too ;-)

What a fun idea! A little crunch to a smoothie sounds like a fun way to switch things up.

Nothing starts the week off like a matching straw and smoothie! :)

Love that your straw matches the smoothie color perfectly. ;)

It is a happy :) day as long as the sun is shining, and it is warm outside–which is today’s forecast! I do not mind the winter, but do love the warm spring weather.

If you’re looking for a new combo, apple w frozen banana and loads of cinnamon is delicious…very apple pie-esque!

I’ve never tried an apple smoothie!

It’s definitely smoothie season! And that’s a pretty one. I have yet to try one in a bowl, but I have a feeling this is going to be the year. haha

When you can’t decide, combine. Good thinking. I do that with dessert recipes :)

It is so hot here in MD, all I want is a smoothie. I was planning on burgers for dinner, but I might need a giant smoothie instead!

I’ve been craving cereal lately but don’t have any. I should change that! :)

I love the mason jar with the dog on it! Where did you get it?

I like the idea of a smoothie in a bowl with cereal… I love my smoothies and my cereal, so what a fantastic idea to mix the two! :o)

YUM!! Loving my smoothies, especially as we move into spring. Adding cereal is on my must try list!

Thanks for reminding me about my smoothie/cereal! I had forgotten how good it is. I love to “eat” my chia smoothie in a bowl with Special K Protein cereal or Kashi Go Lean on top. YUM!
