I always wake up hungry, so I want my breakfast to be easy and quick to make. Here are three of my favorite breakfast recipes:
During the summer last year, I have been experimenting with different kinds of smoothie bowls. I started out with some rather miserable attempts, that looked more like berry soup. Finding the right balance between too much liquid, and not enough liquid to get my budget brand blender to blend, was a struggle. For me, the key to smoothie bowl success was sliced frozen bananas, which gives the smoothie some texture without clogging up the blender. I use one frozen banana per bowl together with frozen acai mix for the purple bowls or pitaya mix for the pink bowls. The bananas have to be frozen, or you will get smoothie soup. If you use frozen smoothie mix you might need to add a little bit of coconut water to get the blending started. Top with fresh berries, coconut and other things that make the bowl look pretty:)
My first attempt to make chia pudding was a couple of years back, and it was a big failure. With only two ingredients, you probably wonder how it’s possible to mess it up? Well try adding quinoa instead of chia…
My second attempt turned out so much better, and if you just check that you are adding the right seeds, this is probably the most foolproof recipe you will find. All you need is chia seeds, coconut milk, and maybe a touch of vanilla + a nice topping that you like (my favorite is passion fruit).
Oatmeal with Almond Milk
Old-school oatmeal is filling and delicious. My recipe is with almond milk, but you can also use regular milk if you prefer. It doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to make, and it will keep you full for a long time. Perfect for those days, when you’re so busy, lunch might not happen.
