Blood orange and yogurt breakfast bowls: Easy breakfast inspiration in the form of Greek yogurt, mixed berries, blood orange slices, and a handful of your favorite granola.
Hello, gorgeous! Yes, you, but also these blood orange and yogurt breakfast bowls. Breakfasts that look this good are motivation enough to get me out of bed any morning. And let me tell you, I’ve been needing some extra motivation to rise and shine lately. This month, I’ve been trying to do my part to participate in “healthy January” by getting in the habit of waking up extra early to exercise.
Winter is always hard for me when it comes to staying active because my preferred workout involves getting outside to go for a run or a bike ride by the lake. Obviously, the weather really puts a damper on those activities and I stubbornly refuse to get a gym membership. Sorry, I know myself better than to think I’ll find either the time or motivation to get to the gym on a regular basis.

But this year, I had a stroke of inspiration and ordered a stationary bike stand so that I can hop on my bike in the next room and also watch Netflix at the same time – win, win! Most of the time, I’m doing 15 different things at once (approximately), so I love that I can have something baking in the oven, workout, and catch up on my shows all at the same time.
But what’s been really awesome (and surprising to me), is that adding this to my schedule has actually helped me feel less frazzled and hurried in the mornings. I think the discipline helps to set the tone for my day and I’m definitely the kind of person who appreciates a morning routine. However, I often don’t make enough of an effort to build that routine into my life, either because I’m sleep-deprived or just lazy. So, here’s to new habits!
And speaking of habits brings me back to these blood orange and yogurt breakfast bowls, which have been playing on repeat for us lately. It’s rare that I break out of my green smoothie routine, but I’ve been so obsessed with blood oranges ever since I started testing my blood orange poppy seed cake recipe. I figure I have to take advantage of this winter citrus being in season and readily available while I can!
To be totally honest with you, these breakfast bowls barely constitute as a recipe. They are so easy and you seriously don’t even have to measure anything. Just as guidance and for clarity’s sake, I did provide some proportions for each ingredient in the list below. However, I totally recommend ditching the measuring cups and just feeling it out. Nobody’s got time to be measuring or doing extra dishes on a busy morning anyway!

Blood Orange and Yogurt Breakfast Bowls
Greek yogurt topped with mixed berries, blood orange slices, and granola. Use the below measurements as a general guide, but feel free to adjust both the portions and proportions however you like!
- 2/3 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1/2 blood orange (sliced into 4 quarter inch slices)
- handful of your favorite granola*
Spread half of the yogurt on the bottom of each bowl.
Pour the frozen berries into a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave them in 30 second intervals, stirring in-between, until berries are thawed and juices are released. This should only take about 1-2 minutes total. Spoon half of the berries on top of the yogurt in each bowl.
Arrange two blood orange slices among the berries in each bowl, then top with a generous sprinkling of granola. Enjoy!
