Hello and Happy Sunday,
I put together a video to show four of my go to breakfasts after being asked by several friends what vegans eat for breakfast. Today I’m posting the four recipes along with the video in hopes to inspire new morning habits. All the recipes are on the sweeter side of the breakfast spectrum and all very simple but I’ve also made some staples which will make putting together a wholesome and delicious breakfast easy like; chia jam, rhubarb compote and a toasted muesli. I’ve tried to make these as fuss-free as possible and preparing your own condiments give you the opportunity to put exactly what you want inside and nothing else. The recipes also make much more than you’d use up in just one breakfast so you could prepare them on a free evening and enjoy them the rest of the week. However, remember that everywhere I have made my own staple you can of course replace that with a store bought alternative to save time or use fresh or frozen fruit for example instead of a jam or compote.
I’m hoping to make another video similar to this one but with savoury recipes, is that something ou guys are interested in? Would love to hear your thoughts and requests.
About the recipe:
Smoothie bowls seem to have been the craze on social media since it’s inception and whilst it’s not actually my personal favourite for breakfast I think it’s a great way for making your breakfast smoothie more filling as you add various toppings to complete the bowl. For the smoothie base I make a simple berry and banana smoothie spiked with some greens from spinach and frozen courgette which acts as a great, and more nutritious, stand in for ice. I also add some peanut butter, or other nut butter for that matter, which gives it a creamier finish and I also find it contributes to me staying fuller for longer. I top my bowl off with the muesli I made for another recipe in this series, which you can find right here, as well as some chia seeds, fresh and frozen fruit. As always you can go wild here and come up with your own inventive creations using the seasonal produce in your part of the world.
