Easy High-ProteinYoghurt bowl

This is a delicious yoghurt bowl which is ideal for breakfast or as a delicious snack

This is a yummy yoghurt bowl which is a really good way to start your morning, or it’s a nice way to end the day. It’s really handy if you’ve got to the end of the day and realised that you haven’t managed to squeeze enough protein in. If you make a batch of the jam the night before, then it’s a super quick, healthy breakfast. You could even add some fresh fruit if you fancied.

To make the compote

Ingredients:

  • 1 big bag of frozen, mixed berries
  • 1 generous glug of maple syrup (you can always add more to taste later)
  • three tablespoons of water
  • three teaspoons of chia seeds

Method:

  • Throw all the ingredients into a pan and heat on the stove;
  • mash up the berries with a fork;
  • leave to cool.

Ingredients for the Yoghurt Bowl

  • Three tablespoons of Greek yoghurt;
  • 30 grams of protein powder of your choice – I used salted caramel (Bulk Powders – it’s soo good!)
  • Granola (I used the high protein stuff)
  • Compote from above

To make the Yoghurt Bowl

  • Mix the Greek yoghurt with the protein powder in a bowl;
  • spoon on the compote (as much as you want – it’s delicious);
  • Sprinkle on a small handful of granola;
  • Add whatever toppings on that you want – half a banana would be lovely (freeze other half for smoothies!)

I hope you enjoy this recipe – let me know if you try it and what you use as your toppings! Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Smoothie Bowl

My protein filled smoothie bowl, packed full of nutrients and is really tasty!

This protein-packed blueberry and banana smoothie bowl is ready in less than a minute and is simply delicious. I’ve been unwell this week, to the extent that just standing is difficult, so the only food that I’ve been able to prepare is of the quick and easy variety. That said, I’m trying to feed my body nutrients so I wasn’t going to compromise with an easy, but nutrient poor, breakfast. The frozen ingredients in the recipe make this breakfast nice and cold, which soothed my throat a treat.

I’d recommend this smoothie if you’re ill, or if you’re not because it really is good. I’ll be having this again on a busy work day.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana (frozen is ideal but fresh is absolutely fine
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • A handful of frozen blueberries
  • 2 Tablespoons of greek yogurt
  • 150-200 ml milk of your choice
  • High protein granola (or whatever else you fancy)

Method

  • Roughly chop the banana into your blender (I use a Nutribullet for smoothies)
  • Throw in the blueberries and yogurt then top with milk
  • blend until you have a smooth consistency
  • add the protein powder and blend again
  • Pour into a bowl and add topping.
