Quick breakfast recipes

We need to talk.  Listen, it’s not you, it’s your breakfast. It’s tired and it’s time to kick it up a notch.  Instead of the same old shake or oats, mix these four ingredients (that you probably already have in your kitchen) over three days, in three ways, with these quick and easy recipes.

4 Power Ingredients:

Ingredients

  • Day 1: On-The-Go Overnight Protein Oats
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ½ cup Silk Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ serving Vanilla Vega® Clean Protein
  • Optional toppings: 1 tsp maple syrup, cinnamon, chopped nuts, sliced banana
  • Day 2: Blueberry Oat Protein Shake
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup oats
  • 1 cup Silk Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • 1 serving Vanilla Vega® Clean Protein
  • Day 3: Blueberry Post-Workout Oatmeal
  • 1 cup Silk Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1 serving Vanilla Vega® Clean Protein
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • Bonus Dessert: Banana Blueberry Ice Cream
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp oats
  • 2 Tbsp Silk Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • 1 serving Vanilla Vega® Clean Protein
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Preparation

  1. Day 1: On-the-Go Overnight Protein Oats

    1. Combine oats, and almond milk in an airtight container.
    2. Refrigerate overnight.
    3. In the morning, add frozen blueberries and Vega® Clean Protein. Stir until combined.
    4. Add additional toppings, if desired.
    5. If it’s too thick, add more almond milk.
    6. Love it? Double the recipe to store into two airtight containers. They can be kept in the fridge for up to three days.
  2. Day 2: Blueberry Oat Protein Shake

    1. Blend it, pour it into a cup, and drink it.
  3. Day 3: Blueberry Post-Workout Oatmeal:

    1. Over medium-high heat, bring almond milk and sea salt to a boil.
    2. Add oats reduce to low, cover and simmer for five minutes, stirring occasionally,
    3. Remove from heat, remove lid, let stand for one minute. It may seem like there’s too much liquid, but it will thicken once you add protein and blueberries.
    4. Add protein, blueberries, and maple syrup.
    5. Too thick? Add more almond milk.
  4. Bonus Dessert: Banana Blueberry Ice Cream

    1. Blend bananas, blueberries, oats, and almond milk until puréed smooth.

    3. Freeze leftovers in airtight container.
