In the summer you’re bound to have far more exciting things lined up than beavering away in the kitchen for ages. You want to be out there soaking up the sun, going swimming, or simply relaxing on your balcony after a workout. But that doesn’t mean it’s okay to skip breakfast. A healthy and nutritious meal is exactly what you need to start the day with peak power and energy.
But what makes for a balanced breakfast that can help you achieve your fitness goals? Well, it goes without saying that you need a good mix of proteins, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, fiber and vitamins. You can’t really go wrong with whole grains, oatmeal and nuts, either. But sticking to toast and a topping soon gets old. That’s why we’ve put together a great selection of recipes that provide plenty of variety, are quick to prepare, and make ideal breakfasts in hot summer weather. And the ingredients capture the taste of summer like nothing else!
If we had to choose the perfect summer breakfast, it would probably be our Spirulina Coconut Breakfast Bowl. It’s a light and fruity burst of flavor that’s nutritious and delicious to boot. Our recipe combines it with yogurt, frozen mango pieces and more. Just give it a try!
Bowls make the perfect breakfast, as you can mix them up according to your taste and the time of year. Strawberries and banana are our go-to summer combo for that mix of sweet and fruity. We also add our Strawberry-flavored Whey Protein, which provides you with essential amino acids – ideal for muscle building!
You’d be hard pressed to find an easier breakfast recipe than this. It uses our beloved rice cakes, which make a great bread substitute and has a pleasing crunch. Top with some cream cheese and vegan ham, and you’re done. Add a parsley or cress garnish if you like.
If you can spare just ten minutes, you can take your breakfast to a whole new level. Our vegan breakfast bars are like a breakfast bowl to go, so if you like to snack on your way to the office, this summery recipe is for you.
Listen up, chocolate lovers – we’ve got summer breakfast inspiration for you, too. This creamy and refreshing smoothie bowl tastes like a treat from a beachside cafe. And it’s got all the benefits of our Daily Protein + Focus to boost your energy levels and mental performance. There’s no better start to the day!
Sometimes a simple latte is all you need. This latte is certainly simple, but it’s far from boring. With water, matcha, our Vanilla Shape Shake 2.0 and ice cubes, this breakfast drink is utterly refreshing, no matter how hot it is outside. And it takes just five minutes to make!
Whip up your own ocean vibes in this deep blue breakfast bowl, which you can serve in a small glass for that extra wow factor. The great range of ingredients gets the day off to a great start with superfoods, while getting you in the vacation mood. And our white chia seeds are packed with fiber to keep you feeling full for ages .
Ice cream for breakfast? Why not actually? On especially hot days, we treat ourselves to a little healthy refreshment first thing in the form of a matcha nicecream. As this recipe’s also low-fat, sugar-free and vegan, you can enjoy it without the slightest guilt.
Of course, we shouldn’t forget the all-time classic breakfast dish: pancakes. This recipe shows you how to make them extra fluffy with just a few ingredients and steps. And last but not least, blueberries are a must for that ultimate summer feeling.
