5 Budget-Friendly Breakfast Ideas (Ready in under 15 Minutes)

Quick and Cheap Breakfast Ideas for the Whole FamilyCanva

Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day; it gives you the energy to take on the rest of the day. However, breakfast can get pricey. It can also take a while, depending on what you’re making, and in the hustle and bustle of this crazy school and work year, no one has time for that!

With that being said, these are some delicious, nutritious, and inexpensive breakfast meals that’ll keep your family satisfied. All ready in under 15 minutes.

Decorative Toast

There’s more to toast than warm bread topped with butter or jam. Dress up your toast with spreads like hummus or cream cheese, and top it with fruits or vegetables that you can find on sale such as avocado, strawberries, pears, and more! Two slices per person would do the trick (or one if the kids are younger). These will fill you up with nutrients to get your day going.

Breakfast Tacos

All you need are some small flour tortillas (they can be whole wheat) and some eggs. If you are making two small tacos, use about 2 eggs, scramble them up, and then place them on the little tortillas. Dice up tomatoes and cilantro to give the tacos some flare, or add salsa and shredded cheese for emphasis. These won’t take long to make and there are minimal ingredients used. 

Smoothies and Shakes

What better way to get in your vitamins and protein than blending it all together? There are so many options. For example, you can make a fruit smoothie with seasonal favorites like apples, grapes and other healthy sugars. You can also buy the frozen versions of fruits in store, that way you’ll never have to worry about them going bad.

For a vegetable base, try greens like kale, or carrots (whatever’s on sale). If you’re looking to make a shake, add ingredients like Greek yogurt, soy milk, and peanut butter for protein. Even if you have left overs, you can always store it in the fridge.

Parfaits

Brighten your yogurt by turning it into a parfait. All this easy DIY breakfast needs is some low-fat dairy such as yogurt or cottage cheese, fruits high in vitamins or antioxidants, and a good crunch, like granola. Buying fall delights like pumpkin-flavored yogurt can help make it tastier.

To get a decent serving size, base it off of how much dairy you use. If you purchase small yogurts that are meant for 1 person, then that will be the serving size of 1. If you use a large jar of yogurt from the store, try using ¾ cup per serving size.

Trail Mix

This is super easy because you can make it your own. A combination of sweet, salty, crunchy and chewy, this breakfast mix combines some of your favorite tastes. A healthy cereal can help lower cholesterol and add a crunch to the mix, and they come in lots of flavors like honey nut or pumpkin. For something sweet, add dried up fruit like apricots, mango, and coconut shreds. But as a little treat, you can add mini chocolate chips.
