Discover the breakfast smoothie range by Zaggora, packed full of everything you need and just 30 seconds to make.
Greek yogurt swirl. Customize plain nonfat Greek yogurt with your own mix-ins to avoid excess sugar and additives. One of my favorite combos is plain Greek yogurt, creamy almond butter, and frozen raspberries. The texture and flavor is on point! Swirl your mix-ins of choice into a bowl of yogurt and munch away.
Protein chocolate milk. If you’re bored with a typical protein shake, try making protein chocolate milk. Blend together unsweetened almond or cashew milk, chocolate protein powder, and a spoonful of cocoa powder for an extra chocolate kick. Pour over ice and enjoy. This makes a great pre-workout breakfast.
Chocolate baked oatmeal. Baked oatmeal is a quick and easy way to eat oatmeal on-the-go. Add chocolate and it becomes irresistible! To make, stir together 3 cups quick oats, 3/4 cup coconut sugar, ¼ cup cocoa powder, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 2 eggs, 1 cup nondairy milk of choice, ¼ cup coconut oil, and ¼ cup applesauce in a large bowl. Transfer to a greased 9” square baking pan and bake at 350º F for 40 minutes. Cut into 9 squares and serve warm with a scoop of Greek yogurt or a splash of milk.
Veggie scramble. Scrambled eggs are old news, but they’re delicious when jazzed up with some flavorful veggies. Add leftover roasted vegetables next time you make scrambled eggs to get a head start on your veggie consumption for the day.
Caprese omelets. Stuff a homemade omelet with fresh mozzarella, chopped fresh basil, and diced tomatoes for a fresh and gourmet take on a typical omelet. This one is great to serve to guests.
PB&J (really!). A PB&J is typically served for lunch, not breakfast – but if you think about it, it’s just glorified peanut butter toast. Choose a seedy wholegrain bread and add all-natural peanut butter and an all-fruit jam for a healthy and filling breakfast that you can eat with one hand.
Avocado feta toast. This take on your typical avocado toast is so delicious. Top a toasted slice of sourdough bread with mashed avocado, a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese, a drizzle of high-quality olive oil, and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. This savory Mediterranean inspired breakfast is truly scrumptious.
Banana bread chia oatmeal. Take a plain bowl of oatmeal to the next level with banana slices, toasted walnuts, toasted coconut, a sprinkle of chia seeds, and a spoonful of brown sugar. It’ll taste like banana bread while being so much healthier!
Hole-in-one. A hole-in-one combines a fried egg with toast for the best of both worlds in one easy breakfast. Heat a little butter in a nonstick frying pan. Use a drinking glass to cut a circle out of the center of a slice of whole grain bread, then place the bread in the pan and allow it to toast for a minute. Carefully crack an egg into the hole and cover the pan. Cook the egg until just set, flip the toast, and cook for a moment longer. Transfer to a plate and enjoy!
Superfood smoothie bowl. Make an extra thick smoothie by reducing the liquid content and adding your favorite superfood powder. Use frozen bananas to give it a soft-serve like consistency, and serve it in a bowl with enticing toppings like granola, coconut, and fresh berries. Smoothie bowls are all about making healthy food look beautiful.
English muffin breakfast sandwich. On a toasted wholegrain English muffin, layer cooked turkey bacon, a pan-fried egg, fresh spinach, and a thin layer of apricot jam. This unlikely combination is salty, sweet, and totally satisfying.
