Start your Sunday Funday off right with my delicious Rainbow Breakfast bowl made with chia, spirulina, and topped with tons of great tasting superfoods.
I am not going to lie, my favorite thing about this dish was the beautiful bowl. I just bought a set and was so excited to use them I washed, dried, and served my breakfast in one without noticing the price sticker was still on the bottom. Oops 😉 . Since we all know I love chia, I thought it was extremely appropriate to write a post about this scrumptious breakfast option. I often make some form of chia bowl for breakfast so I will write another post soon about how easy it is to change up only a few ingredients to make your chia bowl seem like a whole different meal.
As I mentioned, the base to my breakfast bowls are typically the same, the chia mixture. Everything else is toppings. Simply by adding one or two things or changing the fresh fruit you top it with can transform your bowl to look completely different from day to day. Here is how I made my energizing superfood breakfast bowl.
Rainbow Breakfast Bowl
Preparation time: 10 minutes, freeze overnight
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 3 Tbsp chia seed
- 1 Tbsp organic honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp spirulina
- 1 banana
- Topping: fresh blueberries, frozen raspberries, crushed almonds, and goji berries.
1. Blend milk, honey, vanilla, and banana. Add chia seed to blend and allow at least 6-8 hours for it to sit in the fridge. I always let it sit overnight. You could always double the chia recipe to make a larger quantity so it can be prepped and ready to use for the week.
2. Add spirulina to chia pudding mix in the morning. Throw toppings on and enjoy.
