You could make them vegan by following the suggestions just before the recipe. And just in time for Easter brunch!

VERY GREEN MATCHA SMOOTHIE

This is a green smoothie that packs a punch in the antioxidant and good for you departments. There’s matcha for those antioxidants, a good dose of omega 3’s, potassium, vitamins A, C and K to name a few, fibre, protein it’s like a powerhouse. I love serving it in a bowl over some muesli for hidden crunch and topped with fruit for contrasting flavours. And because it looks pretty tbh.

ZUCCHINI AND POTATO HASHBROWNS

Zucchini and potato hash browns 4   When a zucchini fritter meets a hash brown my brunch dreams collide. I have loved hash browns since I was a kid.

These broccoli fritters are quickly becoming a new favourite.
