Two shots of chilled espresso are used to make the creamy base of this colorful breakfast bowl, so you can eat and drink your morning cup of joe at the same time! It’s also a great choice if you’re looking to get some extra fruits into your diet since you'll use pureeed bananas and dates to make it too.

This hearty chia seed pudding makes the perfect grab-and-go breakfast. Simply assemble it the night before and top it with your favorite fruit, nuts or seeds in the morning. It’s that easy and delicious! It also makes a great snack or after dinner treat if you have leftovers.

Loaded with filling fiber from fruits, nuts and barley flakes, this warm breakfast porridge can be customized just as easily as any omelet. Our test kitchen chefs topped theirs with fresh raspberries, crunchy Granny Smith apple slices and nutty pistachios, but we wouldn’t be mad if a handful (or two) of mini dark or white chocolate chips made an appearance.
