Hello my vegan friends! I want to give you several recipes you can do any regular day. I will post several recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. This post I will focus on vegan breakfast ideas that are healthy, fast, and delicious.
If you are like me and hate to cook, this line of posts will relieve some of the pressure of what to prepare for yourself when you are clueless of what to make.
On this post I’m providing ideas for those that like a light breakfast and for those who like a heavier breakfast.
The first idea is a delicious, filling and nutritious strawberry smoothie. I recommend it specially for those that are in a hurry in the morning. I like it also because it really is tasty and strawberries are my favorite fruit since childhood.
Of course you can get creative and use your favorite fruit, this recipe will work with any fruit.
- Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie:
- 1 cup soy milk
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 banana, broken into chunks
- 14 frozen strawberries
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
In a blender, combine soymilk, oats, banana and strawberries. Add vanilla and sugar if desired. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

I recommend this waffles because I truly love the flavor. I can eat breakfast food any time of the day.
- Vegan Waffles (My favorite of the two):
1 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 cups unsweetened soy milk (refrigerated, not shelf stable)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Maple syrup, nut butter
Special equipment: a waffle iron
Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F if using to keep cooked waffles warm.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cornstarch and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the soy milk, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and gently stir until just incorporated (it is OK if there are some lumps).
Generously spray the top and bottom of the waffle iron with cooking spray.
Fill each compartment almost completely, and spread the batter to the edges. Close the lid and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp, 6 to 7 minutes. Keep the cooked waffles warm in the oven or covered with foil on a plate while you make the remaining waffles.

Or you can also follow the directions on the back of the Aunt Jemima’s box and substitute the eggs for ripe bananas (when they look dark brown). It gives it a nice flavor.
