It can be difficult sometimes to come up with new breakfast ideas when on a low histamine diet. Yogurt can be a problem for some people, and spinach or strawberries in a smoothie are sure to make my sinuses start to drain.

Here is a recipe for a smoothie bowl that I like as quick breakfast. Somehow making the smoothie a little thicker and eating it with toppings makes it more satisfying – at least to me!
Take this ‘recipe’ just as inspiration and adjust it to fit the fruits and veggies that work best for you. Cherries may bother some people on a low histamine diet. They do contain quercetin, though, which is supposed to help prevent histamine release.
Low Histamine Smoothie Bowl Recipe
- a handful of frozen, organic cherries (sweet or tart)
- Carrots (optional)
Blend everything together in a good blender until the consistency of apple sauce.
- granola (gluten-free, no cinnamon)
- blackberries or chopped mango
