Red White & Blue Breakfast


I’ve always loved fruit & oatmeal for breakfast, but recently I have been adding a new spin, which is full of protein and tastes amazing! It’s super easy to meal prep too! I make a batch on Sunday and prep 4 bowls for the week. 

Makes 1 Serving

  •  1/2 Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Water
  • Cinnamon 
  • Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 cup Plain Unsweetened Yogurt (I use dairy-free Kite Hill)
  • 1 cup Berries
  • Stevia 

To make the oatmeal, add oatmeal, water, cinnamon, and salt to a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. 

Once cooled, add to a bowl, and layer on yogurt and fresh berries. Enjoy!

Strawberry Banana Faux Yogurt

The perfect combination of yogurt, layered with fresh fruit and granola is a hard treat to resist. I’m all for the health benefits of probiotics, but the 18+ grams of sugar per serving is a major downside (probiotic supplements are a calorie-free alternative). What may seem like a “healthy” breakfast or dessert, can surely be filled with added sugars and unwanted calories (at least vegan options). After discovering Chef Chloe’s vegan blog, I had to try her recipe for Summer Smoothie Parfaits. I added frozen strawberries and almond milk, and refrigerated overnight for a refreshing breakfast the next day, sans sugar. I was surprised to find out that the taste and texture were almost identical to yogurt! So yummy!
