Here are my favorite raw food breakfast recipes and breakfast ideas. Since you don't want to spend much time preparing breakfast in the morning, these raw recipes are all very quick and easy: under 5 minutes to prepare. The ingredients are easy to get.
And..., you may as well give them to your kids because they're just that yummy and a lot healthier than cereo's!
Quick and Easy
1 tablespoon golden flax seed
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Put the flax seeds in the purified water and let sit overnight.
Peel the apples and cut them in smaller parts (for the blender). Peel the banana en break in parts. Rinse the flax seeds.
Put all ingredients in a blender. This can be a hand blender or high speed blender such as Vitamix. Add 1/4 cup water, just enough to let the mixture blend well. Blend all ingredients until smooth. You may want to add a little more water if it's too thick.
You make make this recipe even better by replacing the water with almond cream or fresh juice. You may also add a tablespoon of hemp seeds. My daughter likes to add (germinated) nuts and raisins. You can prepare this recipe the night before (but put the banana in there in the morning). Especially with nuts and dried fruits in it, it will only taste better!
This is my daughter's favorite breakfast. She has been eating this for more than three years almost every morning. I like this breakfast because it has healthy ingredients that are easy to get: especially, the fiber, good fats and protein of the flax seeds.
2 tablespoons hulled hemp seed
1 bag of frozen berries
1 cup pure water
Put all ingredients in a high speed blender. Add enough water so that all ingredients are covered. Blend well.
You may want to add a little more water if it's too thick. You may blend longer if you find it too cold.
This is such a yummy and easy breakfast recipe. This is the other breakfast my daughter loves, but we drink this for lunch too.
The hemp seeds provide good fats and super protein. Hemp seeds are the only seeds that have no enzyme inhibitor and therefore don't have to be soaked in water before eating.
If the berries are sour, you may add a few drops of (liquid) stevia to sweeten.
2 pounds carrots
Wash the lemon and cut most of the peel off. Juice the lemon and the carrots. Ready!
Personally, I like to scrape the carrots, because I don't like the earthy taste when I don't.
If I take this juice for breakfast, I feel so good the rest of the day. It gives me instant energy.
I also like to juice about a 1/2 bunch green leafy vegetables with the carrots for extra alkalizing minerals. Carrot greens, kale or lettuce are a good choice. Apples, celery and fennel also go well with carrot juice. If you're a beginner, start to add only one or two leafs of greens to make sure you still like it. Greens are an acquired taste and it may take some time for you to get use to.
1 young coconut
Open the coconut with a cleaver. Talking about easy, quick and healthy!
You may pour the water in the jar of a high speed blender and some or all of the milk. Blend and you get yourself coconut milk. You can also pour some of the milk into ice cubes - it freezes really easily - and whenever you make a smoothie you can add some coconut milk ice cube for an even more delicious smoothie. Especially quick for breakfast.
1 scoop green powder
16 ounce pure water
Add one scoop to the water and mix. Ready!
You can put this in a water bottle and take with you. If you don't like the taste of the green powder, you may add some lemon juice or add to another juice.
2 tablespoons coconut meal or dried coconut flakes
Mash the banana with a fork in a bowl until very smooth. Add the coconut meal and some cinnamon to taste. Mix well.
Flatten the banana/coconut dough and make small pancakes of them
Leave out in direct sunlight for about 1 hour, flip over and leave for another hour. You may also use the dehydrator or oven. But then it will take longer to dry them.
They don't have to be dry, just on the outsides. They're so good anyway that they're usually gone before I want to serve them.
If you make them the night before, you can take them to go for breakfast in the morning.
In the US you can buy raw granola at most health food stores. You may eat this with vanilla yogurt (see recipe below), almond milk or apple avocado mouse. Another yummy breakfast recipe.
1/2 cup coconut water
1 cup coconut meat
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Open the coconut with a cleaver. Pour the coconut water in the jar of a high speed blender and some or all of the milk. Blend well. You should get the consistency of yogurt.
You can drink it as is - a favorite of my 1 year old baby boy - or you can add a fruit of your choice. Think of peach, strawberries, mango or pear. So good! A fantastic replacer of yogurt made from dairy. It's delicious as a yogurt desert, for breakfast with granola or you can put in in your ice maker machine and you get delicious ice cream.
1/4 cup purified water
Peal the apples and take out the core. Take the avocado meat out of the avocado. Put the two ingredients in a bowl. Mix well with a hand mixer.
This is another very simple raw food recipe, that I eat almost daily.
