10 Plant-Based Breakfasts in Under 10 Minutes
1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
MamaSezz eat your dessert for breakfast. So channel your inner kid and kick off the day with this thick and creamy breakfast “milkshake,” without milk, of course. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is a MamaSezz Heartbeet Gang favorite, with zero refined sugar plus tons plant-based protein, potassium, and flavor!
2. Very Berry Oatmeal
Prefer to stick with the classics? Step up your oatmeal game with this heart-healthy breakfast, ready in minutes and filled with the fiber you need to stay full until lunch. Scoop 1 cup of oats into a microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 cups of water or plant-based milk, a few tablespoons of ground flaxseed, a dash of sea salt (optional), then toss in some frozen berries. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, or until oats absorb most of the liquid.
Have a sweet tooth? Add some date syrup or finely chopped dates.
3. Loaded Avocado Toast
You don’t need to spend $12 on avocado toast! Make this trendy brunch item at home in minutes. Toast 100% whole grain toast then top with a thin spread of dijon mustard before loading it up with sliced avocado, bits of thinly sliced red onion, and fresh arugula.
For an extra protein boost: Add a few tablespoons of hummus before topping with avocado.
4. Protein Power Oatmeal
Energize your day with this souped-up oatmeal recipe. Scoop 1 cup of oats into a microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 cups of water or plant-based milk. Add ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 Tablespoon of natural peanut butter, and a few teaspoons of flaxseed. Microwave 1-2 minutes, or until oats absorb most of the liquid. Slice a banana over the top and enjoy!
5. Creamy Vegan Green Smoothie
A MamaSezz Heartbeet Gang favorite, this Creamy Vegan Green Smoothie is the perfect gateway recipe for green smoothie newbies. Just four ingredients make for quick prep time, plus this easy plant-based breakfast recipe’s got plenty of protein to keep you energized all morning.
6. Nut Butter Banana Toast
Kid-friendly and healthy? You betcha! Even the pickiest (and smallest) eaters at your table with this quick plant-based breakfast recipe. Just toast up some 100% whole grain bread and top with all-natural peanut butter, raisins, sliced banana, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It’s the simple things in life, guys.
7. Antioxidant Blueberry Shake
Time to load up on antioxidants! Thick and creamy, this dairy-free blueberry smoothie is the perfect amount of sweet, without the refined sugar crash. Its beautiful purple hue will make you second-guess that half the ingredients are green -- making it the perfect recipe for “sneaking” greens past your little ones.
8. Vegan Breakfast Sandwich made with MamaSezz Breakfast Sausage
Breakfast sausage without the saturated fat and cholesterol? Heck yes! MamaSezz Breakfast Sausage is protein-packed and made with the traditional seasonings you love but none of the B.S. (you know...Bad Stuff).
While delicious on their own, the party really gets started when you toss these vegan patties in a whole food plant-based breakfast sandwich. Try it between two slices of whole grain toast, a bit of dijon mustard, a thin slice of red onion, and a hearty slice of avocado. Add a little steamed or fresh spinach for a nutrient boost!
Feeling creative? Drizzle some of our dairy-free Mama’s Mac Sauce over the top. Yeah… doesn’t get much better than that.
9. Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
Oatmeal hogs the spotlight but quinoa makes one heck of a breakfast grain, too. This naturally gluten-free seed (OK yes, it’s a seed, not a grain) was actually originally used as a breakfast cereal way back when (like 2000 B.C. “back when”). Mix it up with some plant-based milk, cinnamon, nuts and seeds, and microwave until warm. Sweeten the pot with some date syrup, berries, bananas, or finely chopped dates!
10. MamaSezz Gram's Granola Porridge
Porridge gets a bad rap. But this two-ingredient breakfast porridge is the furthest thing from the gruel in Oliver Twist. Sweet and filling -- and ready in four minutes -- this dairy-free recipe isn’t just tasty, it’s filled to the brim with nutrients, like omega-3s, fiber, and protein. And the best part? It's only 2 ingredients, our MamaSezz Gram's Granola and unsweetened non-dairy milk! Dress it up with coconut flakes, dried or fresh fruit, chia seeds, whatever sounds good!
