3 Simple Breakfast Ideas In 5 Minutes Or Less

May 28, 2018

We’ve got quick and easy breakfast recipes that are nutritious and tasty. Did you know you can serve up delicious and nutritious breakfast meals in five minutes or less? It’s just that easy to start your morning off right!

Avocado Toast

Time to Make: 5 minutes
What you’ll need: ½ an avocado, 2 slices toast, spreads, cheese (optional).

Healthy, filling and tasty, you can’t really go wrong with good ol’ avo toast. Grab a two slices of bread (go for an organic wholemeal sourdough) and put in toaster. While that’s toasting mash the ½ avocado in it’s skin with a folk (remove the pip if it’s in there). Top your hot toast with any kind of spread (try hummus, tahini or miso paste), spread on the smashed avocado and top with crumbled goats cheese or feta cheese, salt and pepper. If you’re really in a rush, skip the toaster and make a simple avocado sandwich instead.

The Smoothie

Time to Make: 5 minutes
What you’ll need: blender, water/milk, ice, banana + anything else.

The smoothie is my go-to quick breakfast. The reason I love it is because it’s so flexible. Seriously, a smoothie will taste good with water/milk, a banana, and pretty much anything else you add to it. Pick one other thing- a handful of spinach, 1/3 avocado, some frozen berries or any other fruit (try mango or frozen berries). Blend on high for 1 minute, pour it in a thermos or a glass jar and take it to work with you.


The Green Smoothie – 1 cup water, a handful of spinach, ¼ avocado, banana, ice.
The Purple Smoothie – 1 cup water, banana, a handful of spinach, frozen blueberries, ice.

Feel free to add protein powder, oats or nuts and seeds such as almonds, hemp seeds, and chia seeds to any smoothie for extra sustenance.

Yoghurt and Muesli

Time to Make: 2 minutes
What you’ll need: full-fat yoghurt, muesli (low sugar), vanilla protein powder (optional).

This is one of my favourite on the go breakfasts because it’s super fast to make and keeps me full all morning. Simply mix some full-fat organic yoghurt with natural muesli and you’re good to go. Add some protein powder for an extra protein boost.

Tip: Mix everything together in a small Tupperware container the night before. That way if you’re in a rush, you can grab it and eat it at work. Plus, the muesli will become soft and have a bircher muesli like consistency. Tasty!
