Mornings can be chaotic. With everything going on each morning, is it any wonder that moms often skip breakfast entirely or grab an unhealthy option? I get it mom. With limited time in the mornings, what choices do we have? To help take the stress out of busy mornings, try making breakfast ahead of time. These Easy Breakfast Ideas and all the many options on the Healthy Breakfast For Busy Mornings, will change your morning routine for the better and give you a great start to your day.
Berry Protein Fluff
- 1 cup (150g) frozen berries
- ¼ cup (25g) vanilla whey
- ¼ cup (60ml) almond milk, unsweetened
Place all ingredients in a bowl and, using a hand blender, blend together until smooth.
Using an electric whisk, whisk the mixture for 5-8 minutes until it gains in volume.
Chocolate Overnight Oats
- ½ cup (50g) old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/3 cup (85g) Greek yogurt
- ½ cup (120ml) almond milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 ½ tbsp. cocoa powder
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl or a jar. Leave to sit in the fridge overnight, then add your favorite toppings (optional) in the morning before you eat.
Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
- 4 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 4 tbsp. chia seeds
- 4 tbsp. maple syrup
- 2 cups (470ml) almond milk, unsweetened
- pinch of sea salt
- ½ cup (120g) vanilla coconut yogurt
Place all ingredients in a medium-size bowl and whisk until the cocoa powder has dissolved.
Leave in the refrigerator for around 6 hours or overnight, until the mixture thickens. Stir a few times during this process.
Divide the coconut yogurt between 2 glasses, and then layer the chia seed pudding on top.
1/2 Tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Add ingredients to a pot: Add oats, water or milk, salt, cinnamon and vanilla (if using) to a pot or saucepan over medium/high heat.
Cook: Bring mixture to a low boil, reduce heat to a low simmer and continue to cook for about 5-7 minutes; stirring occasionally. Oatmeal is ready when the oats have soaked up most of the liquid and are creamy.
Serve with toppings: Transfer to a bowl and add toppings of choice. See flavor ideas below for maple brown sugar, apple cinnamon, banana nut and berry almond.
