Tia Mowry-Hardrict, star of Netflix’s “Family Reunion” and the Cooking Channel’s “Tia Mowry at Home,” is no stranger to the challenge of preparing breakfast for her family while juggling the demands of a fast-paced career. To make morning prep easier and more enjoyable, Tia has partnered with the National Honey Board to celebrate National Honey Month with quick and delicious morning recipes. From make-ahead meals to 5-minute dishes, Tia’s breakfast recipes are crowd-pleasing favorites that are perfect for weekday mornings.
In addition to her favorite recipes, Tia has time-tested tips for making frenetic mornings both flavorful and fun:
- I love using the time after I put the kids to bed to prep for the next morning. Even taking 15 minutes to make overnight oats with almond milk, Greek yogurt, honey and blueberries makes my A.M. so much simpler—especially if both Cory and I have to be on set!
- Some mornings devolve into organized chaos—we’ve all been there! When I need fuel fast, I love to make a smoothie that comes together in minutes. I combine honey, almond milk, almond butter and my favorite fruits in a blender —it’s a great way to get a delicious and nutritious meal with minimal work.
- As an actor, my schedule can be all over the place—so I’m a big fan of packing breakfast snacks for on-the-go! I love making breakfast bites with oats, honey and almond butter that I can throw in a container for munching while I’m en route to set or on a break between takes.
- I have two kids and one hungry husband, so the pantry is a frequently-visited place in our home. To ensure that it’s always organized, I take five minutes in the evening to reorganize and make sure that everything is in the right place, as well as take stock of my pantry staple supplies like honey and nut butters. This saves me so much time when I’m scrambling to make breakfast or looking for the right ingredients while cooking or baking.
