Sweet breakfast part two

Last year I shared some of my favourite breakfast ideas, you can find them here. I also promised to write a follow-up post with more ideas but then I got sort of hung-up on this green smoothie which is my total favourite morning boost,

Finally, I have collected some more breakfast ideas that are both a delicious and healthy start to the day.  


Mango orange lemon smoothie with ginger
Serves 1-2

1 mango
2 oranges
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
a pinch of cayenne

Mix all ingredients in a blender with some ice and enjoy! 


Raspberry chia pudding
Serves 2

1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup (50 g) fresh or defrosted raspberries
a handful of pumpkin seeds

Add chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla and almond milk to a glass jar or small bowl. Give it a good stir and leave to stand for at least 10 minutes in room temperature or let set in the fridge overnight. If using a glass jar, cover the jar with its lid and shake vigorously for a few seconds until the contents are well mixed. The benefit with using the jar is that you can easily remove it from the fridge and shake it a few times so that the ingredients blend well together. This prevents the chia seeds from clumping upon expansion.

The pudding is best enjoyed after an hour of soaking or when left in the fridge overnight. This way, the chia seeds have time to absorb all the liquid. At serving, top with raspberries and pumpkin seeds and enjoy!


Black coffee and fresh fruit another hot morning in Madrid last summer. Le Pain Quotidien never dissappoints. 


Granola and homemade almond milk in bed.


Layered greek yoghurt and sliced strawberries topped granola and coconut.


Warm porridge on a cold morning topped with sliced nectarine and rice milk.


Black organic coffee with a tablespoon of coconut cream. Yum!

Sweet breakfast part one

Breakfast. It can be so many things and I believe for most of us it tends to change; we vary it depending on the time, the season and whether we are out or at home. When I was growing up we had sourcream yoghurt (filmjölk) with homemade cassis jam and granola for breakfast. I can't say I really liked it. The filmjölk per se is sour and the cassis jam was hardly sweet enough for my immature taste. My biggest cheer was on the weekend when we, if I was lucky, ate some honey yoghurt or in summer when we had fresh raw strawberry jam in the refridgerator.

When I was a teenager I loved making pancakes or scones for breakfast, or if I was in a rush I often just grabbed a couple of apples.

Since then, fortunately, I have found quite a few morning foods that power me up for a great day.

For me black coffee and fruit is an essential in the morning. Without it, I don't feel quite like myself.

Here are a few of my breakfast favourites


Chia pudding, fruit and black coffee


Berries, fruit, egg and yoghurt with homemade granola

Raspberry chia overnight oats (for one)

1/2 cup almond or oat milk
1/4 cup oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut flakes
a handful raspberries
1 tsp cinnamon cacao nibs

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Stir gently and refridgerate overnight. Place some fresh or frozen raspberries in a glass and pour the chia oat mixture on top and decorate with goji berries, cacao nibs and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Coffee, tea and juice with friends (good conversations can be very energising too)


Mashed avocado drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with chilli flakes on ryebread (mm one of my absolute morning favves)


When me and Damien have breakfast in a café I often bring a protein bar to have alongside my coffee. Then it is just a bonus if I find something that I like, such as these dried pineapple rings.

Hope you found some inspiration, expect a follow up post soon!
