Sweet and savoury recipe ideas for a Mother's Day brunch
Once you have finished decorating it's time to prepare the treats. Brunch classics like muesli, pancakes, soups and salads are always very enjoyable. If you’re looking to create something delicious and slightly different for Mother's Day, we have put together some sweet and savoury brunch recipe ideas
Colourful smoothie bowl with banana & mango
A colourful smoothie bowl with lots of fresh fruit is perfect for sharing or snacking on. For one bowl all you will need are the following ingredients:
- 1 banana
- 150 g mango
- 75 g mixed berries
- 1 date
- 50 ml almond milk (unsweetened)
- 1 tbsp linseeds
- 1 tbsp almonds
- 1 tbsp coconut chips
First, peel the banana and the mango. Put some of the banana, mango, and berries on the side for decorating the bowl later. Use a blender to puree the rest as well as the date and almond milk. Mix the linseeds and let everything soak for 10-15 minutes. Next, pour the mixture into the bowl and finish off with some berries, almonds, coconut chips and slices of banana and mango.
Use our printable ceramic bowl to serve salads and other treats and put a smile on your mum's face with a sweet saying. After brunch, the bowl is easy to clean in the dishwasher and can also be used in the microwave.
Asparagus salad with strawberries and pine nuts
You should always have something savoury at a brunch. A fresh crunchy salad with seasonal ingredients is perfect. For two servings you will need the following ingredients:
- 500 g green asparagus
- 250 g strawberries
- 75 g feta
- 40 g rocket
- 20 g pine nuts
- 2 spring onions
- ½ bunch of basil
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar (white)
- 1 tbsp orange juice
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp honey
- ½ tsp Dijon mustard
- salt & pepper
Cut off the woody ends of the asparagus and peel the bottom third of the spears. Cut the spears into pieces, cook them in boiling salted water for 5 minutes and then rinse them in cold water. Then drain everything well. Briefly toast the pine nuts in a frying pan without fat over a medium heat. Cut the spring onions into small rings and set them aside. Wash the basil and rocket and make sure you pat them both dry. Cut the basil leaves into strips. Now you can cut the strawberries into pieces.
For the dressing, whisk the vinegar with the orange juice, honey, mustard and oil together and season with salt and pepper. Now put everything into a bowl. Add the dressing to the asparagus, rocket, pine nuts, spring onions, basil strips and strawberries and then crumble the feta on top. Mix everything together and season with salt and pepper.
We hope you have fun creating and recreating the dressing! Be inspired by our other Mother's Day gift ideas.
