Three Simple Breakfasts

I haven’t always been a breakfast person, in fact, up until the last year or so, I usually skipped the most important meal of the day, and just ate a big lunch and dinner, and then snacked late into the night. Now, however, breakfast has become my favorite meal of the day—I rarely go without! I’ve teamed up with siggi’s again to bring you three of my quick and simple, go-to recipes that are healthy, deliciously fresh, and keep me full all morning long.

siggi’s is all about simple ingredients and not a lot of sugar, so I feel super confident sharing these meals with the entire family! Keep on scrolling to learn how to make these deliciously simple recipes yourself.

Papaya and yogurt is my favorite summer morning meal because it’s fresh and light, not to mention incredibly tasty. Siggi’s 2% Coconut yogurt makes the perfect flavor pairing. Add in some lime, granola, hemp seeds, and pepitas, and you have a fresh and satisfying a.m. dish to power you through ’til lunch.


Siggi’s 2% Coconut Yogurt
½ papaya, cubed
½ lime
Hemp seeds

Cube half of a papya in a bowl. Add the fresh-squeezed juice of half a lime. Top with a generous scoop of Siggi’s 2% Coconut Yogurt. Add granola, hempseeds, and pepitas to taste, and dig in!

Next up is a delicious, breakfast time snack that is easy to make and take on-the-go! This low-sugar, matcha smoothie is tried-and-true. It’s protein-packed with a base of Siggi’s Vanilla Filmjolk and greens to keep your energy levels high, and your belly full all morning long.


1 bottle Siggi’s Vanilla Filmjolk
1 large handful of greens (I use spinach and kale)
½ of a banana
½ tsp high-quality matcha powder (add more, if desired)
½ tsp cinnamon
Pinch of vanilla powder
1 pitted medjool date
10 ice cubes

Load all ingredients into a high-powered blender. Blend together on high, and you’re set!

Bircher Muesli is a traditional Swiss family breakfast that combines grains, fruit, and nuts soaked in yogurt and milk overnight. I’ve come up with a morning-of version, which I prefer for a crunchy, cereal-like bowl of goodness. I start with a large jar and add a mixture of rice and quinoa puffs, buckwheat groats, coconut flakes, chia seeds, pepitas, mulberries, cinnamon, and dried fruit (apricot or mango is my personal fave!). With a well-tightened lid and a good shake, this dry Bircher base can be kept in the pantry for breakfast on the fly. 

In keeping with tradition, I topped off every bowl with several spoonfuls of Siggi’s Triple Cream yogurt, fresh fruit, and a good splash of plant milk. This winning combo is packed with nutrients and protein to equally satisfy morning hunger and tastebuds.


Siggi’s Triple Cream Yogurt
Milk of choice
Fresh fruit of choice (we used raspberries and mango)
1 cup rice puffs
1 cup quinoa puffs
¼ cup buckwheat groats
¼ cup coconut flakes
2 Tbsp slivered almonds
2 Tbsp pepitas
1 Tbsp chia
1 Tbsp mulberries
1 Tbsp cinnamon
Diced dried fruit (we used mango above)

Prepare Bircher mixture in a large jar using all but the top three ingredients above. Put on the lid and shake the jar until dry ingredients are well combined. Add 1 cup Bircher to your bowl. Top with a hefty serving of Siggi’s Triple Cream yogurt and fresh fruit of choice. Finish with a good splash of plant-based milk and enjoy with a spoon!
