Posted on

This is the first video of a Low Carb Breakfast series we created. So many delicious things we prepared to show you! Can’t wait to post all recipes. 🙂

To start, I decided to bring you a refreshing breakfast option: an Avocado & Chia pudding. This is perfect for a hot summer morning, refreshing and super filling. The recipe is enough for two servings, but you can double (or even triple) it to make extra servings for other days or maybe somebody you like.

Ingredients
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 and ½ cups (300 ml) of coconut cream
  • ½ cup (120ml) of water
  • Half lime/lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • Coconut flakes to garnish
  • Sweetener to taste (we didn’t use any, this is totally up to you).
Directions
  1. Add to a blender, the avocado, coconut cream, and lemon juice. Blend until you get a nice and smooth mixture.
  2. Turn off the blender and mix in the chia seeds.
  3. Pour the mixture into a container and refrigerate it for at least 3 hours (overnight is better).
  4. It’s done! Garnish it with some coconut flakes before serving.

Missing bread for breakfast but not in the mood to bake a whole loaf? This Simple Flat Bread is perfect for you!

It’s an individual serving, very low carb and awesome for sandwiches or simply to have with some butter in the morning. I normally make it as a quick breakfast option, but you can also use it to create beautiful sandwiches to have along the day.

Ingredients
  • 2 small eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of almond flour (or 1 tablespoon of coconut flour)
  • 1 tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of pure cream (or unsweetened yogurt)
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • Salt to taste
Directions
  1. Whisk all ingredients together and set it aside.
  2. Put a fry pan to warm up at low heat. If you don’t have a non-stick fry pan, I suggest you to grease it a little with coconut oil.
  3. Pour the mixture and let it cook until the bottom part gets brown. Flip to the other side and repeat the process. It’s the same idea of making pancakes!
  4. It’s ready! This recipe gives you one flat bread. You can have it with anything you like. Cut it in half in order to make a beautiful sandwich.
