3 Fun and Simple Halloween Breakfast Ideas

I love making holidays special, but I’m all about ease. I am not about to make fancy princess-inspired bento boxes just because it’s someone’s birthday. I know my children will lead a deprived childhood because of it, but I’m OK with it. I’m good at other things. Fancy and elaborate are not those things. My DIY mantra is: “make easy things that look way more impressive” and it has served me well. Such is the case with these Halloween breakfast ideas. Super simple, but your little ones will love them. I tested these out at a kids Halloween brunch I hosted recently and the menu was a hit with the picky toddlers, so there’s that. Check it out!

    We make green smoothies on a regular basis around these parts, because they are one of the few ways I can trick my toddler into eating veggies.

    3 Fun and Simple Halloween Breakfast Ideas

    This is my current favorite green smoothie recipe, because it doesn't involve a ton of ingredients and they are all fairly inexpensive items. Smoothies can get pricey! My recipe isn't super precise, but we have a Vitamix and to make 6-8 cups of this smoothie recipe, I used: 2 apples, 2 bananas, 3 handfuls of spinach, a small chunk of peeled ginger (to taste), and three large spoonfuls of plain Greek yogurt. I add ice cubes and then blend. To make these true green "monster" smoothies, I simply stuck wiggly sticker eyes on clear plastic cups. Doesn't get easier than that!

    We have 16 chickens and as such we eat a LOT of eggs. Sometimes they get a little humdrum, so making green eggs was a fun way to make them seem extra Halloween-y.

    3 Fun and Simple Halloween Breakfast Ideas

    Cooking green eggs is pretty much the same as cooking regular eggs, as you might imagine. I just scrambled them and added a few drops of green food coloring while they cooked (start with a few and add until you reach the desired shade of green). Toward the end, I also added chopped spinach and some cheese, because my kid is fancy and likes cheese on her green eggs.

    This "recipe" simply involves drawing Jack-o-Lantern faces on clear plastic cups with black Sharpie and then pouring orange juice into said vessel. Yep. Total cheater "recipe," but little ones will love it. So there you have it. Three super simple breakfast ideas to make your little one's Halloween a bit more special.
