As it’s the season of love I thought I’d celebrate with something I love… porridge! This makes a great brekkie or lunch option. The protein powder is optional but adds the vanilla flavour and also the added protein helps to keep you fuller for longer. My current favourite protein powder is Missfits Vegan Vanilla powder – super yummy and available from amazon and Ocado (and other places!)
I make my porridge with water because I prefer it that way but obviously use milk if you prefer. I have used some yummy little protein chocolate hearts from Cocoa+ but you can use any chocolate you like! It would work well with some squares of dark chocolate
This comes in at approx 415 cals of warming yumminess!
You will need:
50g jumbo oats
Large handful of mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional – replace with a 1/4 tsp Vanilla essence if not using)
3 Chocolate hearts or squares
Place the oats in to a saucepan with the protein powder. Add enough water to cover (I like my porridge quite dry so adjust the amount of water to suit you) – heat gently and stir well. If I’m rushed I just pour boiling water on to the oats and protein powder, stir and add a little extra water then blast in the microwave for a min.
Once it starts to cook add in the blueberries and raspberries and stir in.
Slice the strawberries. Once cooked pour the porridge in to a bowl and add the strawberries and chocs on the top.
