Cantaloupe Breakfast Bowls
Calling all fruit lovers!
This one is for fruit lovers! This easy breakfast bowl is perfect for these hot summer days when you want something cold and refreshing. We are large fans of almond milk, but if you prefer milk milk, it would work as well. Or, if you have extra time, homemade oat milk would be delicious.

mornings shouldn’t be boring – start your morning off with this Coconut Berry Smoothie Bowl that tastes as good as it looks!
Coconut Berry Smoothie Bowl
Grab all the berries you can find!
You are basically putting your smoothie in a bowl, and then topping it with all kinds of goodies. The berries are so good right now, so have a ton of them on hand. And an addition of the unsweetened coconut flakes to bring in another texture. you throw on some flax seeds for some added nutrition, but of course, when I went to photograph this, my flaxseeds were nowhere to be found. But know that they are a great addition to a smoothie bowl!
- 2 cups coconut milk beverage
- 3 cups frozen mixed berries
- 1 frozen underripe banana, sliced
- fresh berries and unsweetened coconut, for topping
- Pour the coconut milk beverage into a blender. Add the frozen berries and banana and blend until smooth.
- Divide the smoothie between 2 bowls. Top with fresh berries and unsweetened coconut. Serve immediately.
By using an underripe banana, you get the creaminess that a frozen banana brings without an overpowering banana flavor.
