The kids have been home now for close to 4 months. We have painted, baked, swam, beaded, you name it. The one thing that they consistently want to do? Help make breakfast. Every morning I have to think of something that they can help me with. This something has to comply with a few things:

  1. It needs to be quick
  2. It needs to make as little dirty dishes as possible
  3. It needs to be easy enough for the kids to help with, and have enough steps that both can have a turn
  4. It needs to be nutritious so that they can at least start the day healthy and well-fed

As you can imagine, not many recipes tick all of those boxes. But this one, this one works. And as an added bonus – the kids actually finish the food!

The ingredients

Before I give you the recipe, let me first tell you why I choose the ingredients that I did.

Wazoogles breakfast bombs in Chocolate eruption

In their own words “Chocolate rocks, flame-red power berries and super seed rubble. Suddenly you’ve got puffed Peruvian quinoa wrapped in molten heirloom cacao, the crunch of purple corn superfood flakes and cacao-dusted coconut all exploding on your tongue. It’s a  Chocolate Eruption and it’s dangerously good.”

I add this to really amp up the chocolate flavour, and also for the seeds (good fats).

Wazoogles Superfood Protein Blend in Unicorn berry

In their own words “Wazoogles Superfood Protein Shake is a delicious blend of some of the most vibrant and nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Every scoop is bursting with antioxidants, living enzymes, essential minerals, plant-based protein, and a wide spectrum of vital nutrients, yet is completely free of added sugars, chemicals, colourants, flavourants, or fillers. Ideal as a quick breakfast smoothie or meal replacement, or alternatively as a pre/post-workout shake for sustained energy and optimum recovery. Perfect for elevating your daily nutrition intake or to use as high-performance athletic fuel.

Each serving has been carefully formulated to nourish your body at a cellular level and support overall health through helping to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce cravings, and provide sustained energy.”

I love this product, mostly because I know this is as close to a meal in a cup as I can get. Plus the kids love the purple colour and the fact that it has unicorns on the packaging!

Pick and Pay Double cream plain yogurt

Full of good fats, just what growing minds need, the yogurt helps to give the smoothie body and to keep the kids fuller for longer.

Full cream milk

Just a dash to make the mixture liquid enough so that the nutri-blender can work its magic.

You can add fruits, chopped veggies, nut milk, nut butter, etc. to make the smoothie even more nutritious and tastier, but I work with what I have and in our current situation we are not spoilt for choice 🙂

[Although not a paid post, I really want to encourage you to go check out Wazoogles – they offer so many awesome products, and all of them taste amazing. Plus they give free shipping on orders above R350 (only in RSA)]
