Chocolate Banana and Blueberry Breakfast Bowl – Cereal Optional :)

5 WWPP Posted by 6 years ago 5 Comments

I’ve been on a frozen wild blueberry kick after discovering my local Costco’s sells them in bulk. Most mornings the little guy and I pour our cereal, load it up with frozen blueberries and enjoy breakfast together. It’s becoming a nice morning habit.

We mix it up now and then. Types of cereal, adding banana, alternating between milks, sometimes skim, sometimes almond and sometimes my new favorite, light chocolate soy. Chocolate Banana and Blueberry Breakfast Bowl - Cereal Optional :)

This morning I wanted a healthy breakfast but, to be honest, I ate so much over the weekend that I wanted to go a little lighter. That’s when this simple idea hit me!

I love the banana chocolate combo and the blueberries, especially the frozen ones, add fun sweetness, even turning the milk a lovely shade of purple (the little guy loves that!) :)

I realize the idea is quite simple but I hope it sparks some ideas for you. Sometimes a simple bowl of fruit is a perfect breakfast for me.

  • 1 medium banana cut in half longways and then sliced
  • 1/4 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 3oz light chocolate soy milk

Place all ingredients in the bowl and enjoy your fruit filled breakfast! At least that’s what I do. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Do you thaw your blueberries first?

    nope! They are perfect frozen and get this nice glaze when the milk hits them. The wild ones are so small they start to defrost almost immediately anyway.

    So simple and so tasty, I bet! We did something similar today, only added a ton of butter, sugar and flour to it. So my guess is your version was healthier :).

    Roni, Saw your posts on wild, not regular, blueberries. Went to the grocery store today and you were right, they were in a strange place, right next to the desserts! Anyway, my 3-year-old and I tried them today and absolutely LOVED them. Thank you so much for the suggestion!! From Julie in Cincinnati
