I don’t know about you, but I have some picky eaters on my hands. If you have kids who eat whatever you put in front of them, I’m incredibly jealous!
Two things I can always count on them eating without complaint is fruit and yogurt. So when I found out about the Mexican breakfast called Bionico, I knew it would be a hit in my house.
This “bionico recipe” can be thrown together with whatever you have on-hand!
What is Bionico?
Bionico, meaning bionic, is a delicious and healthy breakfast (or dessert) originating in Guadalajara, Mexico.
It’s a kid-friendly fruit and yogurt parfait with some yummy toppings sprinkled on top.
You can make it with whatever fruit, yogurt, and cereal you have on hand.
Make Your Own Bionicos
My kids really enjoyed assembling their own bionicos with a “Make Your Own Bionico” breakfast bar.
First, I cut up some fruit and put them into separate bowls. I used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, but you can use whatever you have.
Next, I spooned some plain Fage yogurt into another bowl. Fage is pretty thick, so I mixed in a couple splashes of milk to thin it out a little.
If you want to make a more authentic bionico, you may also mix in some sweetened condensed milk and/or crema fresca into your yogurt. We kept it simple with just the yogurt and milk for the kids. You can find an authentic recipe for the crema for bionicos here.
Bionico traditionally has some raisins, shredded coconut, and granola sprinkled on top, but as I said I have some really picky eaters, so we sprinkled Cheerios on top. My apologies to the people of Guadalajara.
We finished it off with a drizzle of honey, and dug in. It was a hit. Yum!
It doesn’t feel quite right even calling this a recipe, since it’s basically “throw some yogurt, fruit, and cereal together in a bowl.”
But my kids really enjoyed the aspect of building their own bionico bowls, and I hope yours will too!
