soy, fruit, cereal.




i just realized a glaring hole in this blog's recipe repertoire: breakfast! 

not only are there no breakfast recipes, but there isn't even a breakfast tag. not that you couldn't eat this or this or this muffin first thing in the morning... but i suppose i'm more of a raw ingredient breakfast diner. which could explain why i eat (and always look forward to eating!) some variation of pretty much the same things every morning: fruit, soy yogurt, and a medley of cereals. in a cheery mug (this, my friends, is absolutely key).
so while i'm not sure if this qualifies as a recipe, here's one slightly "fancy" version of my simple breakfast to tide you over while i start looking into a real breakfast/brunch recipes to share soon.

a no-hassle vegan breakfast

1/2 cup vanilla soy yogurt
1/4 cup soy milk
1 ripe banana, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup bran flakes
1/4 cup more exciting cereal, like granola or fruit muesli

while you can everything together the morning of, i like to let the yogurt, milk, and fruit blend in the fridge overnight. just assemble the first three ingredients in a bowl the night before, give a stir, and cover. the next morning, scoop the delicious mixture into a bowl and top with your choice of cereals.
