Healthy Breakfast & Juice Recipe

Healthy Breakfast & Juice Recipe

This is what my Saturday morning looks like. My little boy and I spend time in the kitchen making a healthy breakfast and a delicious fruit and vegetable juice.

We experiment in the kitchen all while we bond over the rainbow.

Our favorite recipe for vegan pancakes, veggie salad, and a fruit/veggie juice is:

Blueberry/Banana Pancakes

1 cup of blueberries
2 bananas
1 cup of unbleached flour
2 tsp of flaxseeds
1 tsp of coconut sugar
1 cup of almond milk

Directions:

  • Put the 2 bananas and blueberries in a bowl. Smash them with a fork.
  • Then add the flour, flaxseeds, coconut sugar, almond milk, and coconut flour in the bowl with the smashed blueberries and bananas. Mix well until everything is blended well. Batter should be slightly lumpy.
  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle, using about 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot. The blueberries will melt. Wait for each side to cook.

Top 3 Healthy Juice & Meal Recipes For Kids

If you’re a mommy with a busy schedule that needs some tips and recipes to feed your children healthy foods without spending hours in the kitchen, then you came to the right place!

Eating healthy has been by far the best decision I’ve made for myself and my family. It also made it easier for me as a mom to manage my time at home and work. I spend less time cooking or meal prepping, I save on my food bill, and my family is healthier than ever. As a working mom, I get more satisfaction in making sure that my family is healthy than in anything else I do because if they are healthy then it means we can create memories until we all grow old. My proudest moments are when I see my family eating lots of greens, a healthy meal or when we workout as a family.

All of this is possible for you if you just make a few changes to your diet. You have to start somewhere!

Below are the top 3 juice and meal recipes my son loves and yours will too! Not only are these recipes super healthy, but they take no more than 20 minutes to make and they don’t require too many ingredients, just fruits, veggies, nuts and some spices. Happy Juicing and healthy eating!
