Good morning, friends!
With the summer’s heat on full blast this week, the last thing I want to do is turn on my stove, but we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so there’s no skipping it in our house, especially when eating a healthy one sets the tone for my entire day. That said, here are a bunch of nutritious, delicious, and, best of all, no-cook ideas for breakfast that will get your day off on the right foot!
Ricotta Toast with Raspberries and Almonds
I can’t get enough ricotta toast lately, especially when it’s paired with fresh fruit and Honey Roasted Cinnamon Almonds. The combination is cold, sweet, and creamy with a boost of carbs, which gives me energy and gets me moving in the morning!
Sriracha Eggs + Avocado
With this delicious combo of eggs, avocado, and Sriracha Flavored Almonds, you can enjoy a cool, savory breakfast in no time at all. Just hard-boil 2-3 eggs, dice up half of an avocado, and then add crushed Sriracha Flavored Almonds and your choice of hot sauce to the mix. Oh my gosh, it is so good. Definitely try this one. I promise it will not disappoint! It also makes a great snack/lunch/dinner!
CAB (cereal + almonds + berries) Parfaits
Parfaits are such a fun way to jazz up your usual (perhaps boring?) bowl of cereal or yogurt. Just layer your favorite kind of yogurt with almonds (I used Honey Roasted for some added sweetness and crunch), cereal, and fresh berries. Then, grab a spoon and dig in. Easy as that! These parfaits are also great for dinner, especially when it’s way too hot to cook!
Blueberry Vanilla Almond Smoothie
This Blueberry Vanilla Almond Smoothie combines so many wonderful flavors together with a touch of sweetness from fresh blueberries, vanilla-flavored protein powder, and Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds. Mmm! And it’s got some serious staying power with the satisfying combo of protein and fat. What you’ll need: 1 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds, 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder, 1 cup vanilla almond milk, 4-5 ice cubes. How to make it: Combine ingredients in a blender until smooth. Makes 1 serving
I also love this Pick-Me-Up Smoothie that’s made with banana, espresso, and almond milk.
Tropical Almond Yogurt
This breakfast can literally be thrown together in a matter of minutes. Just add sliced banana and Toasted Coconut Almonds to your favorite yogurt. I love using coconut or vanilla yogurt with this flavor combo.
Sweet Vanilla Almond Overnight Oats
If your mornings are hectic, overnight oats are a great option for a healthy breakfast since you make them the night before. That way you have a tasty meal waiting for you first thing in the morning. What you’ll need: 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup vanilla almond milk, 1/4 cup Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp chia seeds, 2 tsp maple syrup, and fresh berries to taste. How to make it: Combine ingredients (except berries) in a mason jar or bowl and refrigerate overnight. Top with fresh berries and grab a spoon the next morning! Makes 1 serving
I also love this recipe for Almond Joy Chia Pudding with some Dark Chocolate Almonds.
