Scrumptious Vanilla & Almond Protein Breakfast Bowl

Last Updated 18th October 2019

We’ve all seen them on beautifully curated Instagram feeds blending in with colour themes and lifestyle posts, but Breakfast Bowls need not cost the best part of ten pounds in a trendy East London brunch spot!

They’re easily enough made and when crafted with Nutribuddy protein powder or granola, can nurture your body with nutrition as well as your social media with style.

This Vanilla and Almond Breakfast Bowl can be decorated however you like so there’s plenty of time to get the perfect Instagram shot before you tuck in.

Don’t worry though, this isn’t all form over function: the chia seeds provide plentiful antioxidants, the berries plenty of Vitamin C and the oats nutrient-dense carbohydrates.

Nourishing and beautiful… what more could you want?
