Breakfast Antioxidant Bowl

Traditional breakfast choices are often processed, high in simple sugars and low in nutrition. And we wonder why we need caffeine, muffins and the office lolly jar to get us through our days! Stop the viscous cycle by making a breakfast choice that is packed full of nutrients –  good fats, greens and protein to provide blood sugar control and sustained energy. What I love the most about this Breakfast Antioxidant Bowl is that the only sugars are those naturally occurring in raspberries and coconut milk. Try it and tell me how satiated you are, and how suddenly, you don’t need to eat every two hours anymore. How you start your day really shapes your entire day.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 handful cos lettuce
  • 1 handful raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 scoop Bare Blends organic vanilla bean WPI
  • 1/3 tray ice


  • 1 handful walnuts, crushed
  • Cacao nibs, to taste


  1. Add water and chia seeds to the blender and let sit for 15 minutes for the chia seeds to go to work.
  2. Add milk, avo, spinach, cos, raspberries, cinnamon, maca and coconut oil and blend well.
  3. Add protein powder and ice and blend until thick but smooth. Add more ice if desired.
  4. Pour into a bowl and top with walnuts and cacao nibs. Enjoy.

A “breakfast” bowl perhaps, but I could honestly eat this at any time of the day.

    Hi Fram, we don’t count calories here at TNN! Nutrient density is everything 🙂

    I am dairy free so unable to eat your Bare Blends products, what else do you recommend? Thanks 🙂

    Hi I was wondering how long u could keep this in the fridge for ? Would you be able to make it the night before ready for the next morning

  5. Steph

    Yes, that is a great idea! I often prepare mine in advance or make two at a time to reduce my overall food prep.

    It does make a very large amount, but we love it. I double the recipe and my hubby and I have been having it for breakfast every couple of days since I saw your post on what you eat in a day. Thanks so much for something differently yum for brekky 🙂

  7. Steph

    That’s such a great idea! I’m so glad you both are enjoying it.

    Can I use maca powder when I’m breastfeeding?

  9. Steph

    It is untested during breast feeding but many have used 1/2 teaspoon per day with great success. If you do go ahead, start gradually.
