I had guests for dinner but no dessert so we quickly made a Victoria sponge. I reduced jam with brandy to make a topping, and added fresh berries.

Usually when I make smoothies I make them as a dessert, using fruits and not vegetables, but smoothie breakfast bowls looked like too much fun to pass up. I made the smoothie from cooked and chilled broccoli, a handful of blueberries, a banana, hazelnut milk, and stevia. To decorate I used sunflower seeds, dried goji berries, pumpkin seeds, pinenuts, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, black and white sesame seeds, flax seed powder, and flax seed powder mixed with goji berry.
This is a typical breakfast for me.
It consists of Greek yoghurt sweetened with agave and stevia, fruit compote, fresh fruit, cocoa nibs, and ground flax seed. Since this picture was taken in the spring, my seasonal fruits were strawberries and blueberries, and the compote is rhubarb and banana, with a few dates as extra sweetener. When I’m lazy I get sweetened yoghurt with a fruit layer and just add the flax and cocoa nibs.
After I made my kale bread bites, I had some extra spelt-rye dough. I decided to make blueberry cinnamon rolls using small chunks of sugar and fresh blueberries.
The dough didn’t rise as much as it normally would because I used heavy flours and didn’t give it enough additional rising time.
I added a lemon-vanilla glaze. When they were warm they didn’t need it, but when they were cool it perked them up.
