Eat like a royal. Now that Meghan Markle has revealed the breakfast regime she uses to wind down from her hard life as a royal and as a mother to the four-week-old Archie Harrison, you too can try this royal breakfast.
We all know that Meghan Markle is into the fit and healthy lifestyle, way before she ever became a royal. Now as a royal she has much more options to lead a healthy lifestyle, with the over £3million renovation of Frogmore Cottage which is thought to include a yoga studio with a ‘floating floor’. She has often times talked about her passion for cooking, and in an interview, she revealed the breakfast routine she has, with the main ingredient in it being around £30. Royal breakfast indeed.
Before her marriage to the Duke of Sussex, in an interview with Eye Swoon Meghan revealed an acai smoothie bowl that was her favourite breakfast dish. Acai, often times called “purple gold”, is a superfood berry packed full of antioxidants. The berry naturally grows in the forests of South America, but it has become readily available on the UK market in recent years. Meghan isn’t the only celebrity fan of the berry, as celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Made in Chelsea star Binky Felstead are also reported to adore the wonder fruit, which only costs 4 pounds a packet.
The Duchess’ recipe also includes an optional choice of sprinkling bee pollen, which costs about 15 pounds a jar. Another breakfast the Duchess has said she loved is green juice, and that she also enjoys poached eggs on avocado toast if she’s away from home.
She is such a big fan of avocado that her friends often tease her by calling her the “avocado toast whisperer”.
Her close friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin during his last visit to the Duchess posted a picture of him and Meghan enjoying avocado on toast, a pot of tea and Fortnum and Mason truffles.
This is all you need to replicate the Duchess’ breakfast routine:
- One frozen acai packet
- 70ml of almond milk
- 1/2 banana
- A handful of frozen berries
For the topping :
- Coconut flakes
- Fresh berries
- Sliced banana
- A drizzle of manuka honey
- A sprinkle of bee pollen (optional)
When blitzing the ingredients in a blender, the consistency of the acai bowl is supposed to be thick, so the Duchess recommends adding the almond milk little by little.
And if you want to keep the smoothie thick and frozen for longer, the Duchess helpfully recommends keeping your bowl in the freezer before serving.
