With Easter quickly approaching (how did that happen?), we’ve started deciding on our Easter brunch menu. It will be a vegetarian affair and we’re planning on eating a lot of delicious food.
Sometimes I think people don’t believe that the words delicious and healthy can be synonymous, but, my friends, they definitely can.
Even when we’re planning a special occasion meal, we try to stay true to our healthy ways and not gouge on unhealthy, sugary foods. I am a huge dessert fan though and LOVE to bake and whip up desserts so I’ve made sure that whatever is on the agenda appeals to everyone.
Here are some incredibly delicious looking, vegetarian, healthy Easter brunch ideas for you to drool over.
- This Veggie Carrot is so cute and would be pretty simple and quick to make. Perfect for kids to help out with too!
- I just love this Bunny head fresh fruit platter from Worth Pinning. It’s definitely more time consuming than the carrot, but if you have a good amount of people to feed, it would well be worth it, and definitely more fun (and cheaper) than your regular grocery store fruit platters.
- Cucumber Flowers with Yogurt Cheese Spread? Yes, please! I love all of Super Healthy Kids’ recipes and this one is no exception.
- Nutty chocolate chip energy bars are one of our favourite healthy and sweet snacks. You can make these into balls or small squares to add to the table.
- How fun are these Fruity Flowers from One Crafty Thing? I know they would all get eaten up in a heartbeat over here!
- These Apple Almond Energy Bites from My Whole Food Life look delicious and pretty easy to make. We’re a big fan of quick energy balls and bars in this house, so we’ll be making these for sure.
- I’m loving the sound and look of these Carrot Cake Scones from Simple Hacks Living, and they are a definite on our list.
- These Pancake Fruit Kabobs from In the Playroom look so fun. In our house, Sunday is known as Pancake Sunday so we’ll definitely be adding the pancake fruit kabobs to our menu, using either our go-to banana pancake recipe, or we might try out this Apple Oat Pancake recipe. These French Toast Bites from A Beautiful Mess also look oh so delicious and also really fun.
- I’m not a huge french toast fan (I know, it’s strange!) but this Coconut French Toast looks like it could turn any french toast doubter into a french toast lover. We might have to try this one out too.
- If you’re looking for the perfect spring soup dish, Broccoli Cheddar Soup is a big favourite in our house and I have yet to meet anyone who hasn’t loved it.
- I’m a big fan of light pasta dishes and this Green Machine Pasta is one of our favourite quick and healthy dishes to whip up, especially in the spring and summer months. Perfect for a spring sunday Easter brunch menu.
- For the youngest ones, these Easter Bunny Sandwiches from Jenny Evolution will be sure to please. I love this super cute idea and you can even mix it up by making a full on sandwich like this amazing looking one.
Desserts and Sweets
- Raw pies are one of our favourite things to eat in the warmer months and this Raw Blueberry Banana Cream Pie is not only incredibly delicious, it’s also healthy, and vegan.
- I literally just made these vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins a couple of days ago and they might possibly be some of the best muffins I’ve ever tasted, let alone baked. Healthy peanut butter, banana, oat, chocolate chip muffins, and I subbed a bit of the chocolate chips out for crushed walnuts. They are so good that the entire batch disappeared within a day.
- These Easter Egg Breakfast Popsicles from Eats Amazing look…amazing! Healthy, simple and sure to be a hit.
- For the chocolate lovers, Salted Caramel Chocolate Pudding is a simple and delicious treat. You can add whatever toppings you’d prefer.
- I’ve been wanting to make Dreena Burton’s Raw Lemon Lime Cheesecake with Fresh Mango Sauce for a while now and Easter seems like the perfect opportunity. A great healthy alternative to regular cheesecake, plus the flavours would be perfect for Easter brunch.
- Another recipe from Dreena, this Raw Raspberry Pudding is not only delicious, but is so incredibly easy to make and takes no time at all.
- This Blackberry Honey Ice Cream from Recipes to Nourish looks delicious. It’d be great especially in warm weather and looks fairly simple to make as well. I’d likely sub out the regular cream for coconut cream and I’m sure it’d taste just as good.
- As an extra special treat and alternative to the super sugary chocolate treats, these Sugar-free Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs look delicious and would likely be gobbled up pretty quickly.
Smoothies and Drinks
- Clementine Mango Cream Smoothies are pretty much the perfect Easter brunch smoothies. They’re delicious, healthy and the kids love them!
- I’m loving the look of these Fizzy Blood Orangeades from Healthy Happy Life. I think they would make a great Easter brunch drink that anyone, including pregnant mamas like myself, can drink – yay!
- Another favourite smoothie over here that is full of flavour is the Strawberry Cream Smoothie, which also happens to be vegan. Coconut cream, strawberries and non-dairy milk make this one a big winner.
- Do you like cheesecake? What about blueberries? Try this Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie for a delicious smoothie treat.
- If you’re looking for more of an energy, protein boost, try the Date Almond smoothie, which is healthy and delicious.
