Breakfast Sundae

Since I’m a fairly new blogger I thought it would be fun to do the “ABC’s of…” I’ve recently seen on other blogs.

But before I get to that, I want to share the amazing breakfast I created this morning.

Breakfast Sundae

Ingredients:

For Oats:

  • 1/3 cup oatmeal
  • 2/3 cup water or almond milk
  • 1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 TSP agave
  • 1 TBSP flaxseed meal

For Protein Banana Soft-Serve (Adapted from Choosing Raw):

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • A few splashes unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
  • Toppings: nuts, sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc.

Make It:

Oats:

  • Microwave oats and milk/water until cooked.
  • Add cocoa powder and agave.
  • Chill in fridge while making the soft-serve.

Soft-serve:

  • Add banana and a few splashes (~2-3 TBSP) of almond milk to your blender.
  • Puree until smooth but still thick, adding more splashes of almond milk if needed.
  • Add protein powder and blend until incorporated.

Layer!:

  • When oats are chilled to your liking, remove from fridge and top with soft-serve.
  • Add any toppings you like!  I chose walnuts but I wish I would have had some sprinkles!

A super fun way to start out your morning!

Next time you’ve got a “case of the Mondays” (or Tuesdays) make yourself a breakfast sundae!  I promise it’ll make all of your problems go away. You’re welcome. 😉
