Berries for breakfast! Berries are the perfect breakfast accent. In these recipes, they take center stage. They are the perfect addition to scones, muffins, pancakes, and even breakfast pizza. Also, bake very quickly and are great to whip together for last-minute breakfast hours!
Triple Berry Scones
These triple berry scones are so easy to make. You can whip them together and have them ready to serve in under an hour. They require minimal ingredients and no special equipment. They are also full of butter, so they have to be good. Frozen berries are used to preserve their shape and color.
Acai Berry Parfait
Instead of an acai bowl, try a parfait. It’s easy to take on the go and is super refreshing. Acai berries are also insanely good for you. It’s delicious at any time of the year and you can mix up the different toppings. Try granola with coconut, bananas, blueberries, or pumpkin seeds on your acai berry parfait.
Berry Compound Butter
Why have regular butter when you can have butter filled with delicious berries? It’s as simple as softening some butter, beating in some blueberries and raspberries, wrapping it up tight and refrigerating. You will impress any breakfast guest when you serve this with this berry compound butter alongside a heaping pile of pancakes.
Berry Breakfast Pizza
Berry breakfast pizzas are the best of every meal. The tart fresh berries taste delicious alongside the sweet cream cheese base and a crispy pita crust. This one is best served in the summer when berries are at their peak. Avoid using frozen berries as they don’t pack as much of a punch and look a little messier on top of the pizza.
Raspberry Toaster Strudel
Frozen toaster strudels don’t come close to this homemade raspberry toaster strudel. Okay, there’s no toaster involved, but they are super easy and taste a thousand times better than their speedy counterpart. You can still turn to the freezer section for frozen puff pastry sheets, and the filling can be made with your favorite flavor of jam or preserves. Kids can even still enjoy piping the icing on top themselves.
Although these homemade berry recipes are actually prepared in the early morning, parents will love that their kids can enjoy something homemade rather than a pre-packaged, and without any extra fillers or additives. Berries are delicate morsels that are at their best eaten quickly after picking. Store them, if needed, covered and chilled. Rinse and pat dry just before eating or using.
