Quick & Delicious Breakfast Recipes For Busy Mornings
If you love breakfast recipes, this post is for you. Here you will find some easy and delicious breakfast recipes, including smoothie and salad dish
1 – Green Tea Energizing Energy Smoothie
- Makes: 1 Serving
- Prep time: 10 minutes
A morning smoothie made with green tea makes for an excellent foundational ingredient. Because it includes a high concentration of antioxidants, it is both hydrating and anti-inflammatory, and it also contains caffeine, which provides an increase in energy. The consumption of smoothies in the morning is an excellent approach to increase one’s consumption of fruits and vegetables, as well as of healthy fats and proteins. This recipe only makes enough for one serving; if you want to prepare meals ahead of time, increase the ingredients by 5 (or more), package the smoothie ingredients into individual servings (see below for storage advice), and keep them in the freezer. Prepare a new pot of green tea specifically for each smoothie.
- 1 cup of water already boiling
- 1 green tea bag
- 1/2 of a banana, sliced and frozen
- 1/4 cup of blueberries from the freezer
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1 teaspoon of ground chia seeds
- 3 ice cubes
1. Place the green tea bag inside of a big heat-resistant bowl or measuring cup and pour the boiling water over it. Steep to taste.
2. While the tea is steeping, put the frozen banana, blueberries, and spinach in the blender along with the chia seeds. Blend until smooth.
3. To partially cool the tea, put the ice cubes into the cup of hot tea. After pouring the still-warm tea over the ingredients of the smoothie, mix everything for approximately a minute until it is completely smooth.
Make “packs” of your smoothie by keeping portions of the banana, berries, greens, and chia seeds together in single-serving freezer bags for up to two months. These bags can be frozen for later use. To prepare a smoothie, all you need to do is boil some tea, add some ice cubes and the contents of a smoothie pack, and then blend everything together.
A useful hint for the kitchen is to freeze any fresh fruit or vegetables that you plan to use for the smoothie packs before placing them in the freezer bags. The ingredients will not stick together as a result of this. To accomplish this, spread the fruit and vegetables out in a single layer on a baking sheet and place it in the freezer for one to two hours. After the smoothie has been frozen, portion it into individual bags.
Tip for making substitutions: Feel free to add nondairy milk such as soy, oat, coconut, or almond milk, switch out the varieties of fruit, or add protein powder or silken tofu to increase the amount of protein in the recipe.

2 – Fruit and Herb Salad Parfaits
- Makes 3 servings
- Prep time: 10 minutes
A fruit salad is a powerhouse when it comes to reducing inflammation and is also a delightful and filling way to start the day. The consumption of this assortment of fruit first thing in the morning will increase your intake of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and it is balanced out by the consumption of anti-inflammatory unsaturated fats and protein. You won’t experience any hunger and will have enough energy to get through the day.
- 1 fluid ounce of ginger-berry granola
- 1 fluid ounce of blackberries
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 cup of strawberry slices, measured out
- 1 apple, chopped
- 2 tangerines or clementine oranges, segmented
- 3 healthy large basil leaves, cut and fresh
- 3 fresh big mint leaves, cut and used
- 1 1/2 cups of plain yogurt, either dairy or nondairy.
- 1 level teaspoon of honey
1. Make sure to follow the recipe when preparing the granola.
2. Mix the blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, apple, tangerines, basil, and mint together in a large basin until everything is incorporated. Distribute the fruit salad among three glass jars with lids that screw on and top each jar with a half cup of yogurt. Each one should have one teaspoon of honey drizzled over it, and then one-third of a cup of granola sprinkled on top.
Keeping: Place the jars of parfait in the refrigerator and leave them there for up to two days. If you want the granola to maintain its crunchiness, you should keep it in a container that is separate from the yogurt and not keep it in the same container.Tip for Substitution: If you want to make this dish suitable for vegans, replace the honey with agave or maple syrup. Experiment with making this dish your own by topping it with different ingredients, such as unsweetened coconut flakes, chia or hemp seeds, chopped nuts, and so on.
