Vegan Breakfast Cup

Creating beautiful healthy foods for you and your loved ones doesn’t have to be a difficult task!
I’m always on the lookout for new ideas and recipes that can be prepared in the matter of minutes, but will leave one satisfied for hours.

Smoothies are one of the most delicious, nutritious and quick meals that you can prepare at home, and even enjoy on the go. When you do have an extra minute or two, I highly recommend devoting the time to making your food look attractive and decorating your plate. It does make a great difference – it’s like eating a treat from a high-end restaurant in the comfort of your own home. Besides, you deserve it!

This delicious pink vegan breakfast cup was made in the matter of minutes, and it’s layered structure allows you to combine various foods that will fill you up and provide nutritional benefits. You can be as creative asOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA you like. Adding and substituting fruits, grains, superfoods to your liking.

Here is the recipe I used to make this layered cup:
Pink smoothie (recipe below)

Yogurt of your choice (I used Almond Dream vegan yogurt)
1 tbsp chia seeds
2-3 tbsp oats
Fruit for decorating

1 ripe banana
3-4 frozen green figs (from Trader Joe’s)
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
Water as needed

PREP: Throw all your ingredients in a high speed blender such as Vitamix, and voila – you’ve got your base. I use just enough water to blend, as I like my smoothies to have an almost ice-cream like consistency. Plus, the thicker it is, the easier the layering process.

In a see-through cup or glass, pour in your smoothie just about half way. Next, add a layer of oats (can use granola or muesli of your choice). Sprinkle the chia seeds. Next, add your yogurt – you can pour as much as you want, I used about 4-5 tbsp. Pour the remainder of your smoothie.

Finally, decorate your cup to your liking. I cut up banana slices, added frozen raspberries, and sprinkled a treeposetbsp of PB2 (powdered peanut butter – a must try!).

Now, dig in and savor every spoonful of your delicious and beautiful breakfast treat!
