Christmas Morning Breakfast Ideas

Considering its Christmas Eve Eve I thought it was finally time to write a post of festive breakfast ideas for Christmas morning!! I don't know about you guys but in my house we have a tradition of opening stockings at the first sight of morning, then heading downstairs for a breakfast filled with our favorite foods before we open the under-the-tree presents. This year I thought I should step up my game and truly immerse myself in the Christmas spirit by transforming my favourite foods into their true festive potential. 

Christmas Vegan Waffles
1 1/4 cup Non-Dairy Milk
1 tsp Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1/2 cup Oats
1 3/4 cups Spelt Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Flax Seed
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Soy Whip Cream
Choc Shot

1. Combine the almond milk and vinegar in a small bowl and leave to curdle 
2. Add in all the other wet ingredients and whisk until combined
3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients before adding in the wet ingredients and stirring well
4. Let the batter set and thicken whilst you heat up your waffle iron 
5. Once the waffle iron is heated, coat with coconut oil and pour in your batter, cook your waffle according to the instructions that accompany your waffle iron
6. Once cooked, its time to add festive designs to your waffles! I decided to make one of my waffles into a Santa's head and the other into a Christmas Tree! 

For the Santa's head: cut your strawberries and arrange them at the top of your waffle for Santa's hat, leave one sliver of strawberry for the nose. Then use your soy whip cream to create Santa's beard and the bottom of the hat, before adding blueberries for the eyes and a smile made of choc shot syrup. ENJOY!
For the Christmas Tree: cut your waffles into 4 triangles (works best if you have a round waffle iron) and arrange into a tree shape, place your blueberries, strawberries and sprinkles onto the tree along with the choc shot syrup. Place a star shaped biscuit on top (you can find the recipe here) and its complete!! ENJOY!

Christmas Oatmeal 
1 cup Oats
1 cup Water
1 cup Almond Milk
1 Tbsp Flax Seed

Chia Seeds
Coconut Sugar
Flax Seed
Cacao Nibs

1. Add all the ingredients into a small saucepan and heat over a medium heat, stirring continuously until thickened and bubbling 
2. Once cooked, pour into a festive bowl and top with ALL the toppings listed above and any others you want to add! Enjoy with a mug of Christmas Tea or hot chocolate - recipe for my ULTIMATE vegan hot chocolate can be found here and a festive book (one of my favourites being Dash & Lily's Book of Dares)

Green & Red Smoothie Bowl
Handful of Spinach
Almond Milk
3 Bananas
Non-dairy Vanilla Yoghurt
Strawberries / Raspberries

1. Add the spinach, bananas, yoghurt and milk into your blender and blend until smooth before pouring into a bowl
2. Top with strawberries, raspberries (or any other red toppings you like) and coconut flakes  and ENJOY!!
