I know a lot of people who aren’t vegan can get completely turned off about the concept of eating vegan food.
It’s an unknown world for most of us, but in actuality a lot of “normal” food most of us eat is in fact vegan or can easily be made vegan.
Vegan alternatives taste just as good but leave you feeling absolutely amazing and light, as opposed to guilty, gross, and heavy.
I am here with you today to give you 6 vegan breakfast recipes which are super easy to make that all of your non-vegan friends will actually enjoy!
These recipes are also great vegan starter meals for all you new plant based babes out there.
You will be sure to win over your non-vegan friends with these gems. They are tried, true and tested!
Breakfast burritos with soy chorizo are so good for those days when your in the mood for a more hearty savory breakfast.
Cook your soy chorizo as per package, then add follow your heart vegan egg, or tofu and sauté together.
I like to add whole black beans, corn, mushrooms, avocado or guacamole, spinach, salsa, and fresh cilantro.
Wrap it all up in a burrito shell, and sprinkle some vegan cheese on there if that’s your deal (chao cheese is my fave).
Serve with crispy hash browns.
You won’t even feel like your eating a vegan meal!
Acai bowls are so simple, light, refreshing and healthy- they’re perfect for a summer weekend morning.
Everyone loves them, whether your vegan or not!
To make: add 1-2 packets of Sambazon frozen acai (or powdered acai), to your blender.
Then add 3 frozen bananas, 2 fresh bananas, 3/4 cup frozen berries and a couple pitted dates (optional).
Next, add coconut milk until your able to blend smooth (the less milk the better, for consistency purposes).
Top with granola, fresh sliced bananas, chia seeds, coconut shreds, peanut butter, fresh berries or whatever else your heart desires.
Then drizzle with agave or maple syrup and you have yourself a winner.
Waffles can so easily be made vegan- you honestly can’t even tell the difference between the vegan ones and non-vegan ones.
But what’s even easier then making vegan waffles is making frozen vegan waffles.
For those mornings when your feeling a bit lazy, but still want something indulgent for breakfast.
Just pop some in the toaster or microwave and indulge.
I love topping mine with maple syrup, peanut butter, cacao nibs, and sometimes even a bit coconut ice cream for those mornings when I have an extra big sweet tooth (which is every morning, let’s be honest).
Vans frozen waffles are my favorite- just be sure to double check ingredients.
Trader Joes also makes great gluten free frozen waffles that surprise surprise, are vegan as well.
So simple and so good.
When I was little, I would wake up in the morning giddy with excitement waiting for the toasty sweet bread to come fresh out of the oven. I only got this treat every now and then when my grandma would come to visit us. I always looked forward to it!
These taste exactly the same as from when I was a child.
To make: use any sliced (vegan) bread, then spread melted vegan butter on it (I use earth balance),
Then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Put in the oven on broil and watch for it to fully cook- it will brown and start to bubble and look somewhat caramelized (they cook pretty fast so keep an eye on them).
Serve with fresh fruit or soy yogurt parfaits.
This classic breakfast we all grew up with is so hearty, filling and is naturally vegan.
Make your oats to your liking with your choice of plant based milk.
I like to top mine with peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, chia seeds, and fresh fruit!
Who doesn’t love ice cream for breakfast?
Especially if you can eat as much of you want of it and feel great afterwards.
Nice cream is simply banana ice cream made only from bananas and nothing else! When your bananas are super ripe, frozen and blended- it turns into a soft serve like consistency. It is seriously to die for. Don’t believe me? Try it out yourself!
There’s so many different flavor combinations, but peanut butter banana is my favorite.
Simply blend 4 frozen (super ripe) bananas with 2 fresh bananas. Then add 2 tbs peanut butter or peanut butter powder and blend.
You will need to scrape down the sides and continue blending until a soft serve consistency is formed (add a tiny bit of plant milk or water if needed).
A high speed blender or food processor will work best for this.
Top with coconut sugar/ maple syrup, and fresh bananas. Mmmm.
