Banana and Berry Breakfast Bowl Recipe

I eat this for breakfast all the time and never get bored of it! I find Alpro yoghurt too plain, so I jazz it up a bit by adding some applesauce- it gives it a subtle sweetness and boosts your fruit intake also. I have provided my simple applesauce recipe below- otherwise, Sainsbury’s Bramley apple sauce is spot on for this.

When it comes to the banana, make sure it is super ripe so it is super sweet (mine wasn’t very ripe, unfortunately!). I used thawed frozen blueberries for this particular breakfast bowl (it’s all I had), but use whatever you have available and whatever you fancy! I like to use fresh strawberries when they are in season, delicious!

Ingredients (serves one)

  • 100ml Simply Alpro yoghurt, or unflavoured yoghurt of your choice
  • 2 heaped tbsp applesauce (bought/homemade)
  • 1 small ripe banana, thinly sliced
  • 1 small handful of berries of choice
  • 1 heaped tbsp lightly toasted oats
  • Maple syrup or honey to drizzle



You don’t really need instructions for this one, to be honest! Add the yoghurt to the bowl and stir in the applesauce. Add your toppings and finish with a drizzle of maple syrup/honey. Super quick and easy for busy mornings!

Homemade Apple Sauce

If you would like to make your own applesauce, you will need six apples (you can double the recipe, and put some in the freezer if you like). If you want your sauce to taste tart don’t add any syrup. This recipe makes enough for approximately three breakfast bowls.

  • Peel and core the apples
  • Dice into small 1cm chunks
  • Add into a small pan with a little bit of water, just to cover the bottom. Add 1 tbsp maple syrup/honey
  • Cook on a low heat until the apples become soft. Be careful not to burn the apples- add a little more water if needed
  • Once soft, drain off any excess water
  • Mash until smooth, or blitz in a machine
  • Allow to cool, before transferring to the fridge

Let me know if you make this breakfast bowl!

  1. Oo this looks tasty! I’m not really a fan of banana but I love granola and most other fruit, I love the idea of smoothie bowls, can’t wait until I move out later this year and can buy my own food and actually cater to my food intolerances and eat mor healthy😀 Is that Alpro’s soya yogurt?

    1. I was replying to the comment you left on my Too Faced review but accidentally deleted it 😕. You can top it with anything you like! Cool, I bet you can’t to move out, I hope everything goes to plan for you! Yes it is Alpro yogurt, it is bland without anything in it though. I think they do almond and coconut flavours too

  3. This looks like the perfect easy breakfast! In fact, this is often what I have for my night snack. Something comforting about oats, yogurt and fruit!

  4. It looks delicious! I do plain Greek yogurt, sweetened with a small teaspoon of strawberry jam, whatever fruit I have around, usually bananas or peaches or strawberries, topped with seeds 🙂

  5. I love apple sauce and I have always wanted to make my own, so I’m really grateful to come across this recipe. I have been eating oats with banana for a long time and I have yet to get bored. It is a perfect mix 🙂
