17 Light Mother's Day Recipes

I’m hoping the second you saw the title of this post you immediately forwarded it to your significant other to remind them you’re not cooking! On the other hand if your mother is coming over it hopefully will give you tons of mouthwatering light bites you can make to celebrate mother’s day with her. These 17 Light Mother’s Day recipes will keep all the ladies in your life glowing, filling everyone’s bellies with happiness, while also being simple to whip up.

I love being surprised in bed by the kids with a tray full of delicious bites. Every time is something different, but over the years some of the inspiration for a few of these recipes came from the kids and their creations on holidays like Mother’s Day. A few of my personal faves are the Avocado Toast (I will never get bored of it), Heart Parfaits and Better Than Ice Cream, but I’m honestly an equal opportunist for all.

Whether someone is cooking for you, you’re treating yourself or making light bites for friends you’ve got a bunch of inspiration here to inspire you. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there who are always doing for others!
