It’s the time of year where we take a moment to celebrate the amazing women and motherly figures in our lives. Mother’s Day is a special day dedicated to motherhood as a whole; this means being thankful not just for the mother’s that brought us into the world but their mothers, grandmothers and any maternal bond that acts as a positive influence on our lives.
Traditionally, Mother’s Day falls on a Sunday also known as Mothering Sunday, and although this has religious ties for some people, for many it has become a day simply to honour all things motherly.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, the day often starts with showing the person you are thankful for that you care, by bringing them their favourite breakfast in bed or preparing them a surprise treat in the morning. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite vegan breakfast recipes for Mother’s Day below. From decorative smoothie bowls to warm cinnamon rolls – find the perfect breakfast for that special someone.
