While my hubby was raised on store-bought cereals, I try to teach my kids that there are other easy and healthy breakfast ideas out there. You can call it the-breakfast-wars! That’s why I’m always experimenting with new recipes, hoping that I might change my hubby’s mind and he’ll finally ditch that sugary cereal for good!
So recently I’m all about breakfast smoothie bowls and overnight puddings, and here are my three recent favorites. They’re all easy, fast and delicious, with an option of preparing them in the evening and having breakfast ready once you’re up!
Oatmeal chia pudding:
1 tablespoon oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup milk (regular/soya/almond)
Just mix a tablespoon of oats, with a tablespoon of chia seeds and 1/2 cup milk/soya milk/ almond milk; whatever you prefer. Stir! Add a bit of maple syrup and leave in the fridge for 15 minutes or overnight.
1/2 cup apple souse
1/2 cup natural Greek yoghurt
1/2 cup blueberries
Blueberries, dried fruits and seeds.
In a blender (or using a hand mixer) combine together apple souse, ripe banana, yogurt and blueberries. Serve right away, sprinkled with some more blueberries and seeds.
Peanut butter and banana chia pudding:
1 1/2 cup milk ( regular/almond/soya)
5 teaspoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon natural smooth peanut butter
1 ripe banana
(optional a drop of chocolate souse)
Using a hand mixer or a blender combine together milk, banana and peanut butter, once well mixed add chia seeds. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes, or leave it overnight. Serve it as they are, or add a drop of chocolate souse (I won’t judge you).
I hope that your family will enjoy these recipes as much as mine did!
