Spiced Vanilla Breakfast Bowl

This is a fantastic way to start your weekend. I love this on a Sunday morning after an early cardio session – full of protein with a hint of sweet and spice, this bowl of sunshine is sure to please.




  • 1 heaped tablespoon natural vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Chia seeds and red currants to garnish (optional)


  1. In a food processor, add all the ingredients apart from garnish.
  2. Blend on high until a thick ‘porridge’ forms.
  3. Taste, checking for preferred level of sweetness and spice. Add more spice and a little stevia or additional vanilla protein as desired, then re-blend.
  4. Pour into bowl, sprinkle with chia seeds and top with red currants. Enjoy!


This can be served warm for a hearty winter breakfast by pouring mix into a pan over a low-medium heat for 5 minutes.
Made too much? Add additional almond milk to the leftover mix and stir well = one super-tasty protein shake for later!
