Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Smoothie Bowl (Dairy-Free)

* This post was originally posted in July 2016. The page was updated in August 2019.

In the hot summer months, nothing beats a cooling bowl of ice cream smoothie for breakfast. It might sound a bit indulgent to eat ice cream for breakfast, however this is no ordinary dairy and sugar-laden ice cream. The base is a blend of frozen banana and plant milk that magically transforms into the creamiest, smoothest soft serve. This is one ice cream that you can indulge in to your heart’s content!

As well as a great warm weather breakfast option, this ice cream smoothie bowl also makes a delicious post-school and exercise snack.

Broad Bean, Avocado and Lime Bruschetta

In today’s post, I’m sharing one of my new favourite lunches. It consists of a broad bean, avocado and lime smash served on crispy bread, topped with radish slices. It’s so delicious and fresh-tasting!!

As well as being super tasty, it’s full of nutritional goodness. It’s packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, heart-healthy fats, fibre and protein. Broad beans are an especially rich source of antioxidant vitamin C.

You’ll be pleased to hear that it’s really easy to make too, and ready in 15 minutes or less. Delicious, nutritious and easy… this is definitely my favourite kind of food! While I enjoy it as a lunchtime treat, it could easily be served as a savoury breakfast or light supper option too.

Vegan All Day English Breakfast

The English are famous for their all-day breakfast fry-ups, which typically feature a whole bunch of animal products – sausages, bacon, eggs and black pudding – served alongside mushrooms, tomatoes, hash browns, baked beans and fried bread. However, just because you’re passing on eating animals, this doesn’t mean you have to miss out on this traditional English culinary experience. There are so many amazing all-day veggie breakfast options available now, and they’re often far more creative and colourful (and healthy!) than the meat version.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a delicious vegan cooked breakfast that, as the title suggests, is suitable for serving any time of day. We’ve been enjoying it as an evening meal, but it’s equally perfect as a weekend breakfast, brunch or lunch.
