I’ve been on the green smoothie bandwagon for a while now, and although I still love them I thought it was time to try something different for my weekday breakfast. I love anything that can be prepared in advance as whilst I’m somewhat of a morning person, I like to be as efficient as possible, particularly when it comes to breakfast. I had seen different types of layered breakfasts on instagram and pinterest so decided to have a go at making up my own combination!
The first thing I did was make a chia pudding to use as the base layer. To make it I used:
- 2 bananas
- 4 tbs chia seeds
- 1 cup almond milk
- Pinch of cinnamon
You simply mash the banana, stir in the chia seeds then the milk and cinnamon and then pop it in the fridge until it turns into a gel like substance. I left mine for about 2.5hrs before I did the rest!
My layers from bottom to top were:
- Chia pudding
- Soy yoghurt
- Chocolate Buckinis
You could easily swap in any other fruit you like, and if you don’t have something like the buckinis (although they are delicious! Another Loving Earth Product I highly recommend!) you could add some chopped up mixed nuts like almonds and walnuts.
Voila! I think they look pretty great and they definitely tasted delicious. It’s especially good if you have a long spoon so you can get bits of all the layers in every bite! Such a great way to start the day!
Have you tried a breakfast like this? What would you put in yours?
