You may find your usual bowl of steaming hot porridge or eggs on toast is not going down well at breakfast time with the warmer weather approaching. If you’re looking to kick-start your day in a healthy way, and brighten up (while cooling down) your breakfast routine, you’ve come to the right place.

Here are some cold breakfast ideas that are simple to make, healthy yet filling.

Yoghurt Parfaits 
Repeat layers of yoghurt, your favourite fruit and a bit of low-sugar cereal for a refreshing breakfast that also looks like a Master Chef style work of art! 

Chia Seed Pudding
Chocolate pudding for breakfast? Yes please! This chia seed pudding is super yummy, full of fibre and easy to make. Find our recipe here.

Bircher Muesli with Mango
This is a breakfast best made the night before and it's a perfect on-the-go option for the time-poor. Combine oats, milk and honey and refridgerate overnight. In the morning, add mango, passionfruit and strawberries and some natural yoghurt. Voila! 

Smoothies make the perfect cold breakfast meal, especially if you’re short on time and/or don't like anything thats too heavy in the morning. The greatest thing about smoothies? It’s entirely up to you what you want to make it with! Here's a breakfast smoothie recipe for you and for more inspiration see these Six colourful power smoothies.

Fruit salad
Just like smoothies, what you add in your fruit salad is entirely up to you. Summer brings some delicious fruits into season, such as mangoes, strawberries, apricots and nectarines. Slice them up, put in a bowl, add some yoghurt if you wish, and breakfast is served!

Acai bowl
If you don’t know your superfood from your superheroes, the Acai berry has been hailed as the king of superfoods – providing an array of health benefits while also being totally delicious. Find out more about it here.

Muesli breakfast muffins
Use your weekend to make a batch of healthy muffins. This recipe uses oats, apple and apricot to create a moist and delicious breakfast muffin. Switch the plain self-raising flour to wholemeal flour for a sligthly healthier alternative, or instead of canned fruit, try stewing your own apples and adding to the mixture.
