Harriet Olive makes Berry Bowls

made by Harriet Olive 


It’s that glorious time of year; days are long, nights are warm, and produce is beautiful (hello stone fruit and berries and cherries). My eating habits change dramatically with the seasons, particularly breakfast. All of a sudden, you want something light and cool as we head into the summer months so it’s fruit galore for me. I often buy double of the fruit, whether it be peaches or berries, and freeze half to have at the ready for bowls like this one. This berry bowl is one of my faves. Blended with banana, tahini and ginger, it’s creamy but has a lovely zing to it. And even better, it’s got wonderful anti-inflammatory properties between the berries and cinnamon. Top with fresh fruit, nuts and seeds as you please; the more layers the better. Here, I’ve gone with fresh berries, coconut yoghurt, tahini, toasted nuts and seeds and some of those more-ish coconut flakes. If you think of it and have the time, chill your made + more bowl in the freezer before you start blending. Have it for breakfast, have it for dessert, have it all summer long with any of the fruit that’s sitting in your fruit bowl getting a little passed it.
1 cup frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)
Half frozen banana
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp linseeds (optional)
2 ice cubes
¼ cup water
1 tbsp walnut
1 tbsp buckwheat
1 tbsp coconut chips
1 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp coconut yoghurt
1 tsp honey
Half cup fresh fruit
Toast your chosen nuts and seeds using a heavy-bottomed cast iron pan on the stove top until golden.
Place all bowl ingredients in the blender and blend on high speed until smooth. Add more water if you need but be sure not to add too much – you’re wanting the consistency to stay fairly solid so you can top it.
Once all ingredients are combined, add to your chilled bowl. Start the topping with the yoghurt and tahini, follow with fruit then nuts and seeds, finishing with a drizzle of honey and sprinkle with salt.
