The irresistible pumpkin scent combined with healthy spices can bring so much warmth and comfort to your morning. The yellow texture of the smoothie covered with a thick white layer of cream is perfect for the cold winter seasons.
The flavor comes mainly from pumpkin and spices, although this recipe does involve bananas. The fruits only serve to increase the sweetness and creamy texture of the smoothie. If you don’t like bananas, consider replacing them with maple syrup to enhance the flavor.
Put the pumpkin puree, one frozen banana, and almond milk in a high-speed blender. Blend until the mixture gets smooth and creamy with a perfect yellow hue, and it is ready to serve. It tastes best after a full meal, so remember to eat first.

You may find it weird to add tomato to scrambled eggs, but they make a great combination. I promise that it is the softest and most fluffy scrambled eggs you will ever taste, with the mild sweetness and unique flavor from the tomato and feta cheese.
The ingredients are very few and easy to find, so ensure that you use the highest-quality and freshest ones to get the yummiest taste. Don’t precook or peel the tomatoes; just put the ripe and fresh fruits in the blender.
If you have some homemade tomato juice, pour it straight into the eggs to save time. Fry the mixture on a non-stick pan and stir gently until all the moisture is absorbed. Toss the scrambled eggs onto a crunchy grilled bread slice and add a little Greek oil to serve.

Fans of blueberries should not miss this easy and simple recipe, which is a perfect potluck option for breakfast. The blueberry muffins don’t contain oil and butter, making this dish much healthier than the regular instant snacks and sugary treats.
Unlike the regular yogurts, Greek yogurt is a rich source of bio-available protein. It is also a great substitute for oil as it doesn’t have unhealthy fats while still creating a creamy texture.
Preparing this dish is very easy by mixing the familiar muffin ingredients: baking powder, flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Blend the mixture gently until you get a perfect yellow texture (don’t over stir), then pour in one cup of fresh blueberry, and it’s done.
If you can’t find blueberries, opt for the other types of berries, which can be frozen or fresh. But the fresh berries taste much better.

Is it the first time you heard of this name? Huevos Rancheros is a famous Mexican breakfast using eggs, tortillas, and salsa. The recipe involves a lot of complicated steps and ingredients, so ensure that you follow the instructions carefully.
The basic ingredients are mainly fruit like tomatoes, white onion, cilantro, and beans (black, cooked, or pinto beans). Some other additives are very easy to find, such as sea salt, cumin, and lime juice.
To make the filling, cook the beans and tomatoes separately before spreading the mixtures onto the tortillas. If you don’t like the red color of tomatoes, replace them with slices of avocado or cilantro.
This recipe is sufficient for one person, so multiply the ingredients if you cook for the whole family. If you are sensitive to gluten or dairy, remove the cheese and opt for gluten-free tortillas.

This is an amazing recipe for gluten-free breakfast that take only 5 minutes to prepare. People following a healthy diet or having Celina disease should try out this yummy and nutritious dish packed with oatmeal and peanut butter.
It is super easy and quick to make. As the oatmeal gets stickier when cooking with vanilla extract and water, the key step is adding the right amount of water to get a creamy oatmeal texture. If you don’t have the agave, use coconut sugar or honey to substitute.
To give the dish a sweeter and more pleasant taste, feel free to add any toppings you have on hand, like fresh or dried fruits and health boosters such as chia seeds and flax seeds. If you don’t like the taste of peanut butter, the cashew or almond works just fine.

Have you ever tried the Mcdonald’s sausage patties? Does its tasty and juicy flavor fascinate you? This copycat homemade sausage and egg Mcmuffin brings a similar taste and more healthy nutrition from many seasoning spices.
I recommend handling the meat first and storing them overnight in the fridge if you are short on time in the morning. The muffins will get smaller after cooking, so it is best to prepare larger meat patties from the beginning.
You can use the BBQ for cooking all the sausage patties at once to save time and effort. Flip the patties when one side turns brown, place the melted cheese slices on. If you prefer tuna, chicken, or lamb, use it to make the sausage, but they won’t taste as good.
Forget the Mcdonald’s; this homemade copycat egg McMuffin is all you need!

Despite its long preparation time, this vegan sausage recipe is super simple to follow, even for newbies in the kitchen. This dish still has a similar savory taste and tender texture to real chicken, despite using only vegan components.
Prepare two large bowls to mix the tomato paste, soy sauce, maple syrup with the dry ingredients (oregano, thyme, ground sage, fennel seeds and wheat gluten flour).Then, combine the mixtures to form a beautiful dough.
The fun part is shaping the dough into a thick log, which you need to knead and pull many times. Wrap the dough in tin foil and bake for 90 minutes; remember to twist its edge and fold on time to avoid overdoing the texture.
After baking, let the dough rest in tin foil at room temperature and cut it into small slices to serve. It’s similar to serving a real beefsteak.

Another nutritious protein smoothie that contains everyone’s favorite flavors from strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla combined with the banana split. The reason for adding bananas is that they help increase the thickness and sweetness of the smoothie.
The perfect split protein smoothies will have three separated layers of chocolate, banana, and strawberry, similar to the ice cream. The key is blending the ingredients in perfect proportions to get the beautiful color of each layer.
For example, to prepare the chocolate layer, you can add protein powder, banana, and vanilla but only in moderation. Remember to freeze each layer first before adding another one on top, or they will melt and get jumbled.
