Pumpkin banana quinoa breakfast bowl

2. Pumpkin Banana Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Adapted from:

This recipe is one of our all-time favorites and is particularly perfect for the fall – when the leaves begin to change color and pumpkins are sitting in front of every doorstep in town. This ingredient is therefore perfect for many (fall) recipes, including superfood breakfast bowls.

If there’s a pumpkin spice latte and pumpkin ice cream, why shouldn’t there be a superfood breakfast bowl with pumpkin anyway?

Pumpkin really has a unique flavor though – you’ll either fall in love with it or detest it. It’s used in desserts of all sorts, usually with added sweetener, like brown sugar, but can be used for hearty meals and in soups as well.

Cinnamon and ginger are known to really bring out the earthiness of the pumpkin and add to its creamy texture and nutty, mildly sweet flavor.

Paired with quinoa, pumpkin is an enhancement to the quinoa’s grainy texture. Just like pumpkin, quinoa can be used for both hearty and sweet meals in the kitchen. Adding banana as an ingredient for this recipe, usually as a topping, can provide extra sweetness to your bowl. 

Ingredients for the Recipe

½ cup quinoa

1 cup almond milk

½ cup water

1 banana, sliced or mashed

½ cup pumpkin puree

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

⅛ teaspoon ground ginger

⅛ teaspoon salt


½ banana, sliced 

Pumpkin is a nutrient-dense food that packs a powerful punch. Beta-carotene is what gives orange fruits and vegetables their vibrant color. 


In a medium saucepan, mix together and cook quinoa, almond milk, water, a banana, and pumpkin puree. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat, cover, and summer for 12-15 minutes; remembering to stir occasionally. When it’s done, add in some ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt for extra flavor. Feel free to top with some sliced banana!

Tired of the same old flavors and ingredients for every recipe? No worries – try mixing it up with berries and beets. Yes, you heard correctly, beets.

Beets aren’t just packed full with a ton of nutrients, they’ll also add a very special sweetness to your superfood breakfast bowl. 

While some people might not become friends with this rather unique vegetable, when paired with berries, the earthiness of the beets is a perfect contrast to the sweet bitter flavor of the berries. 

Ingredients for the Recipe

1 cup frozen mixed berries

1 banana

½ cup raw red beets, diced small

2 handfuls of baby kale or baby spinach

¼ cup ground flaxseed

½ cup unsweetened almond milk


⅓ cup fresh berries

Chia seeds 

Red beets add brightness to your bowl and natural sweetness to your palate. Beets are full of nutrients – so they’re good for you, too. 


Blend frozen berries, a banana, red beets, baby kale or spinach, ground flaxseed, and almond milk together to create the base. Add some fresh berries and chia seeds for the garnish, et voilà! You’ve got yourself a delicious, healthy breakfast.
