3 Vegan Breakfast Ideas for Lazy Weekend Mornings

It’s not always easy to pull it together and whip up breakfast on a lazy weekend morning. But, the same old bowl of cereal can get pretty dull after a while. If you’re in need of inspiration, here are three vegan breakfast ideas that are tasty as they are good for you.

1. Matcha Green Tea Smoothie Bowl

  • ½  cup coconut milk
  • 2 tsp matcha green tea powder
  • 1 cup organic spinach or kale
  • Toppings of your choice like coconut flakes, fresh berries, chia seeds, flax seeds or toasted nuts

Instructions

In a blender, add the frozen banana slices, pineapple chunks, matcha green tea powder, coconut milk, and spinach or kale.

Blend on high until smooth and creamy. If the texture is too thick, add some more coconut milk. You could also add a touch of maple syrup for sweetness.

Divide between serving bowls. This smoothie is best eaten fresh. To make it even more delicious, top it up with some juicy berries, banana slices, roasted almond slivers, or coconut flakes.
