Easy and Delicious Summer Breakfast Ideas

While working on our summer breakfast box menus, we were able to pick out some of our favorites to share here. Because we are always coming up with seasonal and custom menus for our clients, we get to come up with a number of new items each season. This summer season has inspired mixed berry pop tarts, s’mores waffles, and watermelon mint juice. We also have some all-time favorites with our berry parfaits and beignets. Below you will find recipes for some of these fun summer treats!

We hope you enjoy getting to make some of these breakfast recipes throughout the summer, like we have.

Mixed Berry Pop Tarts (makes about 8-12)

1 box Pie Dough (store bought or homemade)

1/2 cup mixed berries (fresh or frozen)

1/3 cup water

2-4 Tbs Sugar

1/4 Lemon Juice

As Needed Powdered Sugar

Optional: Sprinkles

Instructions: Bring the berries, water and sugar to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Puree together. (Sauce should be thickened to be more like a paste). For the dough roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick. To cut you will need to either measure and cut or use a shaped cutter (this will depend on what shape you would like. You will need 2 pieces of dough per pop tart. Lay out the bottom layer and spoon in some of the berry sauce in the center, making sure that leave a border around it to seal them closed. Using a brush or your finger, dampened with water, brush along the edge of the dough (this will help seal the pop tarts, you may want a small bowl of water to do this). After that place the top dough layer on and gently smooth along the edges to make sure to get any air pockets out. Next use a fork to crimp the dough along the edges to fully seal the pop tarts. Gently use the fork to prick the pop tarts over where the sauce is (only once or twice). Bake at 375 F for about 15 minutes. The pop tarts should be golden and cooked through, remove from the oven to cool. For the icing mix the lemon juice and powdered sugar together until smooth and thick. Once cool spoon the icing over top, add sprinkles, and let it dry.

Watermelon Mint Juice (serves 4-6)

1/2 Watermelon (seedless, cut)

1/4 cup Lemon Juice

1/4 cup Sugar

10-16 oz Water

12-16 leaves Mint

Instructions: Add all ingredients to a blender or bullet blender. Blend together until fully pureed. Adjust sugar and water to your liking. Chill to let all the flavors meld together for 1-2 hours and enjoy.

Notes: We love using our bullet blender for this. It’s super easy and takes up a lot less space. Check it out HERE (affiliate link).

Berry Parfait (serves 4)

24 oz Greek Yogurt

2 oz Honey

1.5 cups Berries

4 oz Granola

Instructions: Mix the honey into the yogurt. Split into bowls and top with berries and granola.

Note: Our favorite granola is Safe and Fair since it’s vegan, kosher, and top allergen free. Check it out HERE (affiliate link).
