Raw Blackberry Dream Breakfast

Do you like sweet breakfast? I always crave sweet fruits on the mornings after I wake up. Banana is a great start of a new day. Paired with blackberry and figs brings the morning to another level. Sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and a beautiful raw creation is served. 

When I was little, my grandmother had all kinds of fruits, berries and vegetables in her garden. I remember feeding my dog with blackberries, he loved them! Fresh blackberries were always my favourite kind of berries. 

Sometimes I really miss the times spent in my grandmothers garden eating real, organic food without realizing how important and nourishing it is for my body. Now I live thousands of miles far from my grandmothers place, in an apartment and to get organic produce is really not that easy anymore. 

Raw Blackberry Dream Breakfast

serves 2

4 big, ripe bananas, sliced 

blackberry jam:
1 1/2 cups blackberries
1 cup fresh figs, chopped
4 dates, pitted (or more if desired)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg 
1/4 cup water, or more if needed

few blackberries, figs and leaves of mint

To make the jam: Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until you get a smooth mixture. 
Assembly: Place a layer of sliced bananas on each plate and spread over with the jam. Place another layer of bananas on the top and continue the process four - five times. Spread the jam over the top and edges. Repeat the process on the second plate. Garnish with blackberries, figs and few leaves of mint, serve and enjoy!


  1. ohgoodgolly that's sheer heaven on a plate! So many of my favorite flavors all together for a gloriously yumful treat. When I was growing up our next door neighbor had a huge berry patch and she would let us pick a handful if we walked her dog. I loved spending lazy summers that way. :)
    Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Great memories! :) You make me miss the summer. But every season comes with some nice memories linked to food, now it's autumn and I can't wait to make some recipe using persimmons.
