i had the best weekend in malibu, it’s only an hour away from my house but it feels like you’re on true vacation out there. i also got to stay at the most beautiful house with some of my best friend’s from high school. it was pretty great! i posted a lot of pictures on instagram is you want to take a look. anyway, this tropical breakfast bowl feels like a little bit of vacation right at home. enjoy!
• 1 cup low fat plain yogurt
• 1 banana
• 1 nectarine sliced
• 2 tablespoons golden raspberries
• 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
• 2 small figs chopped
• 1 tablespoon slivered almonds
• edible flower mix
Tropical Bowl: Flavored yogurt can pack in a ton of sugar so we made our own by using a plain yogurt base and blending it with a banana. In a blender mix 1 cup low fat plain yogurt and 1 banana till you have a smooth consistency, about 30 seconds. Pour into a bowl and begin to layer your toppings. It would be a fun thing to make with kids too…they can all pick out their favorite toppings and make food art for breakfast.
We chose toppings that were in season now which can give this bowl a lot of variety throughout the year. For the edible flowers make sure they are organic. Often you can find a small variety of edible flowers at the produce section of your grocery store. Or another great option is your local farmers market. Of course, the flowers aren’t a must, but if you are throwing a brunch party it’s a nice touch!
