Recipe: Layered Vegan Breakfast

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
  • Blueberries
  • Muesli
  • Raspberries
  • 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.

Next up the blueberries


Now for the muesli and raspberries


Finally the yoghurt and the buckinis

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?

    What is a buckini and where can I buy some? This sounds nice, I like the idea of putting it in jars so you can make a couple in advance and store them in the fridge. How long do you think one would last in the fridge?

      A buckini is this: and they are delicious! I bought mine from the Wholefoods shop on Smith Street but I’ve seen them in healthfood stores too.
      I haven’t made more than 3 days worth yet, and I don’t think I would. By day 3 it was all a bit mashed together, but then it had also travelled with me which probably didn’t help!

      It works really well to give it a bit more flavour. You can use other fruits too – this morning’s variety was blueberries for the chia pudding which was delish as well! Endless possibilities! Well almost!

    I just LOVE that word, “buckini” – so cute!! I didn’t know what it was either until I had a look at the Loving Earth website. Wow, sounds so yum!
