Good morning, friends!

With the summer’s heat on full blast this week, the last thing I want to do is turn on my stove, but we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so there’s no skipping it in our house, especially when eating a healthy one sets the tone for my entire day. That said, here are a bunch of nutritious, delicious, and, best of all, no-cook ideas for breakfast that will get your day off on the right foot!

Ricotta Toast with Raspberries and Almonds

I can’t get enough ricotta toast lately, especially when it’s paired with fresh fruit and Honey Roasted Cinnamon Almonds. The combination is cold, sweet, and creamy with a boost of carbs, which gives me energy and gets me moving in the morning!


Sriracha Eggs + Avocado

With this delicious combo of eggs, avocado, and Sriracha Flavored Almonds, you can enjoy a cool, savory breakfast in no time at all. Just hard-boil 2-3 eggs, dice up half of an avocado, and then add crushed Sriracha Flavored Almonds and your choice of hot sauce to the mix. Oh my gosh, it is so good. Definitely try this one. I promise it will not disappoint! It also makes a great snack/lunch/dinner!


CAB (cereal + almonds + berries) Parfaits

Parfaits are such a fun way to jazz up your usual (perhaps boring?) bowl of cereal or yogurt. Just layer your favorite kind of yogurt with almonds (I used Honey Roasted for some added sweetness and crunch), cereal, and fresh berries. Then, grab a spoon and dig in. Easy as that! These parfaits are also great for dinner, especially when it’s way too hot to cook!


Blueberry Vanilla Almond Smoothie

This Blueberry Vanilla Almond Smoothie combines so many wonderful flavors together with a touch of sweetness from fresh blueberries, vanilla-flavored protein powder, and Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds. Mmm! And it’s got some serious staying power with the satisfying combo of protein and fat. What you’ll need: 1 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds, 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder, 1 cup vanilla almond milk, 4-5 ice cubes. How to make it: Combine ingredients in a blender until smooth. Makes 1 serving

I also love this Pick-Me-Up Smoothie that’s made with banana, espresso, and almond milk.

Tropical Almond Yogurt 

This breakfast can literally be thrown together in a matter of minutes. Just add sliced banana and Toasted Coconut Almonds to your favorite yogurt. I love using coconut or vanilla yogurt with this flavor combo.

Sweet Vanilla Almond Overnight Oats 

If your mornings are hectic, overnight oats are a great option for a healthy breakfast since you make them the night before. That way you have a tasty meal waiting for you first thing in the morning. What you’ll need: 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup vanilla almond milk, 1/4 cup Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp chia seeds, 2 tsp maple syrup, and fresh berries to taste. How to make it: Combine ingredients (except berries) in a mason jar or bowl and refrigerate overnight. Top with fresh berries and grab a spoon the next morning! Makes 1 serving

I also love this recipe for Almond Joy Chia Pudding with some Dark Chocolate Almonds.

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite summer breakfast? Have a recipe/link? Please share! 



  1. I love smoothies in the summer, and with just changing up the fruit there are so many possibilities and so easy to change up the flavor!

  2. Smoothies, yogurt or smoothie bowls and toast with avocado are my favorites. Usually I decide based on my morning, the temperature and how much time I have!

  3. I love fibre1, greek yogurt, sprinkle of almonds, chia seeds and cocoa powder with protein powder if I really need the staying power.
    Best breakfast ever! I imagine it would be so yummy with some flavoured almonds. Chocolate almonds would take care of the need to add cocoa, or coconut covered ones would be a new yummy flavour.

  4. Or if I know I need a breakfast bar, I make one ahead of time and keep them in the freezer.
    I like using bran buds, peanut butter, honey, shredded coconut and protein powder. I keep it pretty simple, no million ingredients to mix together.

  5. I love blue diamond flavored almonds and always have a few different flavors to choose from. I love making parfaits with cereal, yogurt, almonds, and berries. It has been my go-to all summer. I am going to have to give your egg bowl a try. It looks like an awesome snack.

  6. Great ideas! I’ve recently been obsessed with raspberries with yogurt or in a smoothie, so I’ll be sure to try the ricotta-raspberry toast!

  7. I keep it super simple and just scramble a couple eggs, dice some avocado and top with salsa or hot sauce. I usually have some fruit on the side or pack some fruit for a snack to take to work. It satisfies my need for protein after a morning workout!
