Papaya Breakfast Bowl with Yogurt, Fresh Berries, Cinnamon, and Vanilla 

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe papaya, cleaned and cut in half
  • 1 cup sheep's yogurt (you can use any yogurt you like)
  • 1 Madagascar vanilla bean or your choice vanilla product, used to flavor your yogurt  
  • 3-5 fresh raspberries
  • 3-5 fresh blackberries (whole or slice some in half)
  • 3-5 fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 of a banana, sliced (we use an apple banana locally grown in Hawaii but any banana will do)
  • 2 dried dates sliced in pieces
  • 1 ounce granola (optional) 
  • 1/4-inch cinnamon quill ground fresh with a spice grinder

To assemble:

Stir in fresh vanilla caviar, vanilla extract, vanilla powder, or any of your favorite vanilla product into your yogurt. Carefully spoon 1/4 cup of your newly flavored yogurt into each papaya half. Lay the fresh berries, dried fruit, and banana pieces sporadically over the yogurt. Next, sprinkle the top with a teaspoon (or two dashes) of fresh ground cinnamon and drizzle with some honey if you are feeling frisky. This easy to do, no fuss recipe offers quick, simple, and deliciously packed healthful solution to your normal morning bore of protein shakes and smoothies.
