To what do we owe the start of a good day. A good Breakfast perhaps. If you do not eat eggs in the morning then you are struggling like me to not get bored with breakfast. Thankfully we Indians have a lot of savoury non egg options but come warmer weather then you want something cold and refreshing and filling for breakfast.
So breakfast bowls are an easy answer, a combination of fruit and a slow digesting grain. They take care of about 3 portions of fruit consumption (if thought through) and are easy to prep the night before. One can also can enjoy them on the run if prepped in take away jars instead of bowls
My sister hates granola and that makes breakfast bowls a struggle really. Finicky eaters these younger ones and if you suffer like me then this quick recipe is sure going to help. Oats are replaced by chia seeds along with the seasons first mangoes, this is quite a tropical breakfast. Plus this one is vegan.
1 cup mango pulp
1/2 cup mango slices
1/2 cup coconut milk
2-3 tbsp chia seeds
2-3 tbsp dedicated coconut lightly tossed in a pan to enhance flavour, save some for garnish
2-3 tbsp sliced almonds for garnish
1 kiwi/ banana to top up the bowl
- Mix together the mango, coconut milk, chia and desiccated coconut.
- Leave it overnight.
- Serve with sliced almonds, kiwi/ banana slices.

Auguries of Innocence
By William Blake
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
