6 Breakfast Bowls That Are Ready in 15 Minutes or Less
Go ahead, hit that snooze button one more time.
It’s early in the morning, you’re scrambling to get ready for work and you’re just not in the mood for a grab-and-go granola bar. Don’t worry — that doesn’t mean you’re stuck settling for a breakfast of coffee and air. Instead, you can whip up these wholesome breakfast bowls in just a few minutes. From microwavable oatmeal to spoonable smoothies, these quick-fix breakfasts are guaranteed to keep you going strong ‘til lunch.
Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl (pictured above)
A handful of feel-good ingredients, like peanut butter, Greek yogurt and frozen bananas, are blended together to form the base of this hearty breakfast bowl. Want to add some chocolate to your breakfast? A tablespoon (or two) of cocoa powder and some cacao nibs on top will do the trick!
Thanks to frozen acai puree, this fiber-rich breakfast is ready in just 5 minutes. Blend the acai with half a banana and a few blueberries, then use the leftover fruit as tasty toppings. The last step? Take a picture to show off your #breakfastgoals.
There’s more to breakfast bowls than oats or smoothies. This pretty dish calls for fluffy quinoa, which can be prepared the night before to save even more time. In the morning, all you need to do is add toppings — we recommend strawberries, pecans and Greek yogurt.
Sorry, breakfast salad — this vibrant smoothie bowl is the best way to eat your greens in the morning. Spinach and avocado are blended with frozen banana, almond milk and chia seeds, then topped with your favorite ingredients, like kiwi and granola, to add more texture and crunch.
So long, oatmeal packets! With this quick recipe, a bowl of homemade oatmeal is ready in less than 15 minutes. Everything (except the toppings) is microwaved in the same bowl, so there’s no need to stand over a hot stove or wash a ton of dishes. Our advice? Use that time to pack up your lunch!
When it comes to smoothies (and smoothie bowls), there’s no better combo than mixed berries and banana. This 5-minute recipe is thin enough to work as a smoothie, but not so thin that you can’t pour it in a bowl and dress up with your favorite toppings. We opt for chia seeds, yogurt and fresh fruit, but nut butter and chocolate chips are never a bad idea.
