With the colder weather and chillier mornings arriving I often opt for oatmeal for breakfast. Sometimes I don’t have the time to stop and eat a warming bowlful and have now found the answer in an oatmeal based shake instead. It has all the comfort of cookies and milk but with the protein
boost and staying satiety power of a ‘big breakfast’. I call it my new BREAKFAST MORNING GLORY!
OATMEAL COOKIE SHAKE
1 scoop (about 30 g/1 oz) vanilla whey protein powder (we used Vanilla Protein Powder from proteinmilkshake.com but use your favourite)
250 ml/1 cup chilled low-fat nut milk (we used unsweetened almond milk)
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp oatmeal or porridge oats (instant or traditional as preferred)
¼ tsp vanilla extract
ice if liked
squirt of low-fat cream, dusting of ground cinnamon and whole nuts to decorate (optional)
- Place the protein powder, milk, cinnamon, oatmeal, vanilla and some iced, if used, in a blender or shaker and process to mix.
- Pour into a serving glass and top with a squirt of low-fat cream, dusting of ground cinnamon and a couple of whole nuts to serve if liked.
