Classic breakfast banana split

Pretend you have a breakfast dessert complete with whipped cream and a chocolate “sauce”. We chose strained yogurt (say, Greek-style or skyr-style) over regular for two reasons: It has more protein to hold up with, and its thicker texture holds its shape for ice cream shakes. Vanilla, strawberry and chocolate are a classic combination here.

Tiramisu, a classic Italian dessert, serves as the inspiration for these overnight oats. The instant espresso powder adds a touch of bitterness to the dish, which is balanced by the sweetness of the maple syrup. We top each serving with yogurt for a bit of savory flavor, but you could also try swapping for ricotta. A dusting of cocoa powder on top is a nod to the dessert’s iconic look. These oats are suitable for meal prep, but if you find the oats get too dry as they sit in the fridge, add more almond milk until they’ve loosened to your desired consistency.

Anti-inflammatory breakfast smoothie

This mango green smoothie gets a bright tart flavor from frozen passion fruit and anti-inflammatory benefits from fresh kale. Dates add natural sweetness with no added sugar. While cilantro may not be a typical smoothie ingredient, we love the herbaceous notes it adds to this smoothie. Feel free to leave it out if it’s not your thing, it’s just as delicious without.

Chia pudding with berries

Chia seeds are a good source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, plus they contain fiber, iron and calcium. Here they are mixed with a fruity base and chilled until the chia seeds expand to form a thick, creamy tapioca-like texture. Pudding for breakfast? Here we are.

A hash brown makes a great substitute for toast in this easy five-minute breakfast recipe. Using the microwave to cook hash brown cuts prep time, but if you have a few extra minutes, pop it in the toaster oven to finish it off for a crunchy base.
