Greek yogurt and fresh fruit are good for us, so let’s freeze it! Yes, you can have ice lollies for breakfast, simply mash your favourite berries with some runny honey, stir loosely into greek yoghurt, fill lolly moulds and slip into your freezer.
Muffins are basically the best portable breakfast around, and packed with healthy ingredients like fruit and nuts, they’re even better. Find a trusted recipe and bake ahead, they store well and will be ready when you are. Try savoury versions as well.

They can be easily customised with your own preferred fillings, and once cooked all you have to do is store them in refrigerator, for when you want them.
