Berry Compote Breakfast Bowl

Breakfast Bowl With Homemade Almond Milk

I’m always looking for simple, healthy meals I can prep on Sundays that will help minimize the chaos of the coming week. A new favorite is this fruit-filled breakfast bowl from our talented friend and chef, Brock Lane.

We first met Brock around [American] Thanksgiving in Vancouver. Jared and I were gearing up to run the Seattle marathon (half-marathon for me) and realized our holiday diet of green bean casserole and pumpkin pie wasn’t going to cut it. A friend connected us to chef Brock who is known for working magic with fresh, simple ingredients. His meals not only fueled our training but quickly became family favorites.Healthy Breakfast Bowl With Berry CompoteThis healthy breakfast bowl is made with a rich and creamy homemade almond milk. Don’t worry—it’s way easier to make than you think! It also tastes so much better than anything you’ll find at the grocery store. I love making it on the weekend to have for cereals and granola all week. The berry compote is so good it makes my kids lick their bowls clean. (P.S. it’s also a great ice cream topper!)

Check out our how-to video, then try it yourself with the recipe and chef’s tips below!

    My grandkids are huge berry lovers. Thanks for the recipe.

  • Hailey Owens

    Thank you so much for posting this. I’ve been looking for a homemade almond milk recipe. The store bought always has a chemical taste to it. Also, would you mind doing a post or video on your bees? I’d love to learn more! Love you, Gen. ?

  • Elizabeth DiSabato

    How much milk does the Almond milk recipe make. I am the only person who will use it. Could I halve the recipe? Also, for me there is a lot of sugar in the compote (2:1 with the berries.) Could I reduce that amount and still get the same result?

  • Ashley

    Love this! I hope you can do more of these and I second Hailey – I would love to hear more about your bees! Chickens too 🙂

  • Calli

    Please please please add that you should never give raw honey to infants. Can be toxic and cause lifelong allergy to honey and any products that contain honey or bee products …PABA Sun screen Burts Bees so many things to watch for. The recipes posted subbed dates but anyone watching only will not see sub. Keep the babies healthy !

    Hi Gen! I’m so excited to try making the almond milk and breakfast berry compote! Thanks! I’m a teacher so I have the summer to try out some new recipes for the kids and hubby (and me!) to try. Really looking for some delicious recipes that help me maintain a healthy weight. I’d love to hear about other recipes that you enjoy.

    I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for forever, and finally got to it this week. It’s AMAZING! My daughter and I are hooked!! I love it so much, I often have it for dessert. Perfect treat for those warm summer days.

    Also, for the compote, I cut the sugar to a half a cup and actually like that better…it’s a lot less sweet!
