Rainbow Breakfast

by Tefal Team on 24 June 2019
  • Pass up the porridge – summer’s here and it’s time to add some colour to your breakfast. If you haven’t tried a smoothie bowl yet then you’re going to want to read on as things are about to get seriously delish.

    They’re all over Instagram thanks to their #nofilterneeded good looks. But the real beauty of a smoothie bowl is that they can be made from whatever fruit, veg and breakfast bits you’ve got to hand.

    So if like to start your mornings with a mini work of art or you need a boost of brain food to get you through a day of exams (we’re looking at you, students) then whip out the food blender and get busy!

  • Eat the rainbow

    When it comes to what to put in your smoothie bowl, there aren’t many rules. Fruit is a good place to start. You can use fresh or frozen, both work well. Bananas are brilliant for consistency and frozen berries add a bit of sweetness. For extra taste, nutrition and style points you can add easily bliztable veg like spinach, kale, carrot or celery and herbs such as basil and parsley. If it starts to taste like pesto, you’ve probably gone too far.

    Next add an equal amount of liquid. Again, no set rules here. Go for milk (any kind), yoghurt, juices such as orange and pomegranate – whatever floats your boat. You can also play with the flavour by popping in some honey, chocolate, nut butters or maple syrup.

  • Chop, chop

    There’s a fair amount of chopping, slicing and whizzing to be done, so a good food chopper will really come in handy. Prep what you can the night before and store in the fridge to make things easier in the morning.

  • Pretty as a picture

    Once your smoothie’s ready, it’s time to let those creative juices flow. Pour into a bowl and decorate with sliced fruit, nuts, seeds and cereals. The trick here seems to be to see how much you can add before it starts to spill all over the counter.

    When you’re satisfied with your masterpiece, take a quick pic to share round the office and tuck in.
