Healthy Bali Bowl for every day

A little info about Bali Bowls - More than just a healthy breakfast

The so-called Bali Bowls have been very popular for several years.
But what exactly is in a Bali Bowl?

What are Bali Bowls?

Muesli 2.0.? A Bali Bowl is a kind of "muesli" with toppings of your choice. You can use vegan oat or almond milk or vegan yoghurt (I love the vegan coconut yoghurt from Alnatura) as a basis. You can mix oatmeal, quinoa, chia seeds or a breakfast porridge into the milk or yoghurt. Of course you can also mix in a bit of everything 😊 As the name "Bali Bowl" suggests, the healthy food trend comes from the Indonesian island of the gods. There it developed from the so-called “expats” who live and work in Bali to a global food trend.

What is a smoothie bowl?

In principle, a smoothie bowl is nothing more than a specialization of the Bali bowl, except that the basis for the toppings in this case consists of a smoothie. With a smoothie as the liquid, the bowls are usually even more colorful if you mix spirulina, blueberries or papaya, for example. A smoothie is a great basis for the toppings and immediately puts you in a good mood.

Healthy and vegan Bali Bowl Recipe: Super quick & super easy

In my everyday life, I like to eat a balanced and healthy diet, but I rarely have the muse or the time to cook extensively. Therefore, I pay attention to a simple and quick preparation. What is tasty does not have to be elaborate.

Healthy and Vegan Bali Bowl Recipe

Ingredients for a colorful Bali Bowl

For the base

  • A good dash of vegan oat milk (I like to use the Oatley Barista)
  • Tender oat flakes or a ready-made porridge mixture (e.g. fruit porridge from Alnatura)

For the toppings

  • 1-2 strawberries
  • 1 quarter banana
  • Coconut flakes Alnatura
  • Goji berries
  • Chia seeds
  • blackberry, blueberries
  • almond leaves

Preparation of the Bali Bowl

Mix together the ingredients for the base. You can use a mixer for this or you can stir by hand. If you like the base fruitier, simply mix in your favorite fruit, such as 3 strawberries, a handful of raspberries, blueberries or a few pieces of banana. The fruit can be fresh or frozen. Depending on the season, you can vary accordingly. Frozen fruits are very refreshing, especially in summer.

Toppings – Fudge or Eat? Both 😊

You can let your imagination and creativity run free with the toppings. Depending on how hungry you are, of course 😉 As you can see in the pictures, I arranged the individual toppings such as chia seeds, coconut flakes, gojie berries, etc. in rows. Optionally, you can refine the bowl with fresh mint leaves and granola. Et voilà your Bali Bowl is ready! As a suitable drink for the Bali Bowl, I recommend a delicious Matcha Latte. You can find the recipe for it here.
