Mother’s Day Breakfast-in-Bed or Brunch

It’s time to celebrate the moms, mums, mommys, mamas, mas and madres out there!

While there are many ways to show your love and appreciation for the moms in your life, we highly recommend bonding over a delicious, nutritious meal. Host a Mother’s Day brunch – or make her breakfast-in-bed – with some of these healthy – and dare we say scrumptious – 8fit meals and smoothies.

We suggest selecting one sweet, one savory and one smoothie option from the menu below. Choose what your momma (or mommas) will like best. You’ll find each recipe in your 8fit recipe book and you can adjust the serving size there if you’re cooking for more than one.

Healthy, sweet brunch recipes

If you’re planning a brunch for a few guests, we recommend doing some meal prep ahead of time. An easy recipe to prep the night before is overnight oats. Give our Carrot Cake Overnight Oats or our Salted Date and Espresso Overnight Oats a go. If mom isn’t into oats, make 8fit’s simple Chocolate Cherry Parfait or Banana & Almond Yogurt on Bread right before brunch starts.

Savory brunch menu ideas

Balance that sweet brunch menu with a savory one. Our 8fitters are totally obsessed with these new recipes for Mini Sweet Potato and Spinach Frittatas and Kale, Tomato and Poached egg on Bread. Not mom’s style? Then this oldie is a goodie, our Avocado and Egg Breakfast Tortilla. Finally, you might have noticed that there was no sweet French toast recipe. That’s because we have a savory one: Egg Masala Toast – yum!

Indulgent, healthy smoothie recipes

The meal isn’t complete without something refreshing to sip on. Avoid sugary juices and blend up a smoothie instead. Make mom feel like she’s enjoying a fruity cocktail while relaxing on a tropical island with our Virgin Piña Colada Smoothie or Mango Strawberry Smoothie. If you can’t find mango and pineapple, we have two banana-forward options for you. Blend up the Banana Berry Protein Smoothie or Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie for mom to enjoy.
