A liquid breakfast might be the best option if the other half is always in a rush in the morning. But special breakfast ideas don’t have to be bland – have some fun by layering your smoothie, ombre style! It takes a bit longer than a normal smoothie because of the several layers you need to make. But it’s worth it because they’re worth it. This easy berry recipe by Brit+Co is packed with antioxidants as well.

2. Eggy-in-a-basket

This cute recipe by HelloFresh can be made for a romantic dinner or breakfast! Hearty and simple to cook, add more pizzazz with extra ingredients like avocado, bacon or cheese and turn it into an unforgettable (and messy) sandwich!

3. Heart-shaped pancakes

Special breakfast ideas can be simple as well! Pancakes are pretty easy to whip up in the morning. But keep it Valentine-themed by using a heart mould when you fry them up. For that extra touch, you can also make heart-shaped bacon pieces with a side of eggs and drizzle with maple syrup. Don’t forget to say “Bon appetit, mon amour”…

4. Scones
