For some reason, people around the globe are infatuated with the everyday happenings of the Royals. Now that Meghan Markle is among them, her life choices are being dissected and tried by the masses. Among those habits is Markle’s daily dose of Manaka honey, which she gets via an acai bowl she eats almost every day for breakfast.
Royal Diet Goes Viral
The popularity of the dish is really somewhat of a perfect storm. Markle has gained considerable popularity since marrying into royalty, acai is one of the hottest ingredients in healthy diets right now, and Manuka honey is growing in popularity virtually every day for both its flavor and perceived health benefits. Put them all together and we created a tsunami of interest in this particular dish.
During a 2017 interview, Markle copped to having a daily breakfast of an acai bowl, green juice, and a cleansing shake. Her particular bowl consists of:
- Acai packet
- Almond milk
- Fresh berries
- Manuka honey
- Bee pollen
To make the bowl, Markle combines a banana, the acai packet, and a dash of almond milk, then blends them together (think fruit smoothie). She pours the mixture into a bowl, then tops it off with the remaining ingredients, including more sliced banana.
Continuing on that trend, we thought we would add some other ideas as a way to work Manuka honey into your daily diet via breakfast. One of the more interesting recipes we found was for some Overnight Oats. The recipe is very easy to make and provides both a healthy and filling breakfast.
Honey Chocolate Oats Recipe
- 2c cooked oats
- 2T Manuka honey
- 1/2c Greek yogurt
- ½c almond milk
- 1 medium banana, sliced
- 2T dark chocolate powder
- Can add additional fruit toppings to your liking (we LOVE blueberries for this)
The recipe is about as easy as possible to make. All you need to do is combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix, then transfer to small glass (rocks glasses are the perfect serving size), cover, and refrigerate. When you are ready to eat, add your fresh fruit on top and enjoy! (*oats will keep for about two days in the fridge, which is why we recommend making this dish in small batches).
