When you think of vegan food, ‘high protein’ generally doesn’t come to mind. But now, thanks to the availability of good quality, minimally processed plant-based protein powders, it’s much easier to make a protein-packed vegan breakfast that’s good for you and delicious. Here are three on my breakkie rotation lately.
Place all ingredients minus the toppings in a blender (I use an Omniblend). Cover and blend on high for about 1 minute, or until ingredients are evenly combined and reach a smooth consistency. Add toppings and dig in! Or, for a thicker pudding, refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight before adding toppings.
PROTEIN PER SERVE (excluding toppings): 18.4 g!
Low in carbs and sugar; Full of flavour.
For the crumble, add coconut oil to a mug and then add remaining ingredients, excluding the yoghurt and berries. Mix well and microwave on high for approx. 1 minute, 10 seconds. Leave crumble to cool for a couple minutes and divide berries into two glasses/jars/wine glasses. Then top each with yoghurt, followed by the crumble, parfait-style. Enjoy!
PROTEIN PER SERVE: 9.65 g
Here I’ve combined three of my favourite foods – coffee, chocolate and oats! This should wake you up in the morning and keep your hunger at bay till lunch, thanks to its substantial fibre, protein and healthy fat content.
Mix all ingredients excluding the nut butter together in a deep, single-serve bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight so that the mixture plumps up. Top with nut butter in the morning and dig in!
PROTEIN PER SERVE: 20.13g!
