Berries & Cream Smoothie Bowl - the perfect way to start your day

Hi Bold Bakers!

Breakfast is a meal you can have a lot of fun with. You can get really creative, go sweet or savory. Or err on the lighter side. It’s totally up to you.

I definitely like to start the day off with something that is lighter because it will set me up right for the day without slowing me down. Fun fact about me, the more I eat for breakfast the more I will eat during the day. Weird, I know. My stomach does the opposite of what everyone else’s does.

Smoothie Bowls are all the rage right now and I am on board. Not only is this breakfast a healthy one but you get to add in any fruit and flavors you like, they are 100% customizable to your flavor profile. Plus you can get your daily allowance of fruit and veg in this one meal depending on what you add in.

For instance I love smoothie bowls that are rich with banana and red berries, just like this smoothie bowl. I like my food to be thick and starchy, just to feel like I have really eaten. I feel like this smoothie bowl scratches that itch.

Another few flavor combination you could try is a tropical bowl with coconut milk, mango, pineapple with sprinkled grated coconut on top. Or better still a protein packed bowl with peanut butter, nut milk, banana and nuts. Really the possibilities are endless.

  1. Hi Gemma, I am wonderung do you have a book of your recipies for sale in Ireland.? Also do you know the name for the ceramic mixing bowl you use in alot of your videos and where can they be bought in Ireland. Thanks

    1. Hi Adrian,
      Good to have you with us in Ireland, or at home, as I like to say!
      I am in the process of finishing a cookbook, it will be published early 2019, all going to plan. It is a longer job than I knew!
      When it is done you will not be able to avoid it! lol. watch this space.
      The bowl I use, and which I ‘stole’ from my mum is a Mason & Cash bowl, and it is available in lots of sizes, I love it. It was the one we made the Christmas puddings in at home, so it is evocative. It is available widely in Ireland, ARNOTTS in Dublin do all of this range, along with smaller kitchen shops too.
      Thank you for being in touch, it is good to have you with us,
      Gemma 🙂

  2. Hey Gemma, i love ur videos and when i saw this i knew i had to try it!It turned out absolutely amazing and thank you so much for the recipe.I did submit a picture of mine but it isn’t showing??Anyway,great recipe!

    1. Sure I can!
      When we were kids my mum used to add a handful of dessicated coconut to cupcake batter, this made a gorgeous light cupcake, with a little jam and buttercream on top, try it!
      Gemma 🙂

    1. Hi Sue,

      I see what they did, they posted it on the screen as the video.

      Here it is :
      2 cups all purpose flour
      2 teaspoons baking powder
      1 teaspoon baking soda
      3 tablespoons sugar
      1 teaspoon salt
      2 Whole eggs
      2 Cups buttermilk
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      4 tablespoons flavorless oil (canola, vegetable or sunflower)
      8 tablespoons strawberry jam
      Powdered sugar for dusting
      Instructions
      Mix together the flour, raising agents, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
      In a separate jug, whisk together the buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract.
      Add the liquid to the dry mix and starting lightly mixing together. The secret to thick, fluffy pancakes is not to over mix. My trick is to stir it enough times to spell P.A.N.C.A.K.E, and then stop.Lumps are ok, resist the urge to mix more
      Put in the fridge for 10 minutes. This helps the butter to chill and bubbles to form in your batter.
      Put a heavy bottom frying pan or griddle on medium heat-low heat.
      Spoon one big spoon of the batter per pancake. During the cooking add a small dollop of jam in the middle of the pancake. Followed by a spoonful of pancake batter over the top to conceal it.
      Cook for roughly 4 minutes on one side. It is time to turn them over when you see bubbles forming on the top of the pancake and the edges turn color (forming bubbles on top is really important because they hold your pancake up and keep it thick, i call them pancake pillars.
      Flip and cook for another on the other side a little longer, until brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!

  3. Gemma you are doing well in the bigger bolder baking and in other YouTube channels???? I ? your recipes and I love brandymilloy’s.
