Protein Powders are an important addition to my weekly diet, exercising as much as I do and eating a predominantly veg-heavy diet. Whilst I do eat eggs and fish, and am aware that I can source my protein in many different ways from plant foods (grains, pulses etc) I really do like including it as a supplement to my workout schedule. I normally do this through a protein shake, and rarely a porridge as I’ve never found a recipe I really love, mostly because until recently there weren’t all too many powders I loved!
This porridge is sweetened with pear and flavoured by spicy ginger. We add some fresh blueberries for a fruity pop and a vanilla flavoured protein powder of your choice to bring home the main feature of this bowl. I find that a vanilla flavoured powder works best with this combination.
1 1/2 cups porridge oats
2 cups oat milk
1 cup water
1 thumb nail size cube of ginger
1/2 cup blueberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (this is for 2 servings, however you can up the anti to 2 if you’d like!)
Start by chopping the pear into small cubes. Add to a pan with the whole ginger and water. Bring the water to the boil and reduce to a simmer softening the pear for around 3-5 minutes, remove the ginger. Now add in the oat milk and oats.
Stir the porridge intermittently for a further 5 minutes. Once the porridge is nice and creamy stir in the protein powder and blueberries.
You’re ready to serve!
