Valentine’s Day Breakfast Ideas For The Whole Family
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about little kids trading treats at school and young lovers making romantic dinner plans with hidden boxes of jewelry and bouquets of roses. This Valentine’s Day, bring your family together for a meal that’s becoming more and more of a novelty than a common occurrence: breakfast. We’ve pulled together some fun, simple recipes and love-themed foods that your entire family will enjoy.
Nutty Tropical Strawberry Overnight Oats
Start out the night before by whipping together this super easy recipe that’s perfect for solid-food eating babies (minus the almonds), older kids and adults as well!
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/3 cup whole milk (almond or coconut milk is also a yummy substitute!)
- 1/3 cup whole fat yogurt of choice
- 5-8 strawberries chopped into smaller pieces
- 1 tsp raw honey
- a handful of sliced almonds
- a handful of shredded coconut
- 1 glass mason jar with a lid
Mix all items together and shake vigorously to mix the ingredients. Use a small spatula to push the remaining seeds and oats down from the side of the jar and make sure that the honey is evenly spread, since it tends to firm up mixed with cold dairy items. Place jar in fridge overnight. Wake up and enjoy your morning treat that’s full of healthy fats, calcium, and whole grains.
If you have pickier eaters in your family, and you’re looking for something with simpler ingredients that anyone is sure to love, try Love O’s bean cereal by Love Grown Foods.
With a variety of beans, brown rice and love, this limited edition heart-shaped cereal is packed full of protein, fiber and nutrients. Even the pickiest of eaters will love the sweet cocoa and strawberry flavor of Love O’s. And while Love O’s will only be around for a limited time, Love Grown Foods makes an entire line of bean-made Power O’s cereals to suit everyone’s fancy.
While your family is busy eating their overnight oats and Love O’s, make their Valentine’s Day breakfast extra special by customizing their eggs.
Whether you’re making eggs over-easy, custom omelets, pancakes or even busicuts in the oven, the heart egg shaper by Mastrad will add a special touch to your food.
Made from 100% silicone, the heart egg shaper can be used in the oven or a frying pan to give your food a beautiful heart shape. Just pour your mixture into the shaper, let it cook and lift with the handles when finished.
Your family will love the effort you put into breakfast this Valentine’s Day morning. And you will love how effortless it is with these easy recipes and innovative products!
