Chocolate, Vanilla & Orange Overnight Protein Porridge

You don’t have to follow this recipe very rigidly, but following it exactly means that you should have a breakfast with more than 600mg of potassium, more than 15g of fibre and less than 400kcal. Some changes that you could make are:

  • You could swap all of the oats for nuts for a low carb version.
  • You could replace the rolled oats with more oat bran to add fibre.
  • I would recommend also adding some fibre such as psyllium husk, konjac root (glucomannan) or vitafiber
  • You don’t have to use strawberries, you can use any type of berries
  • Or try this recipe Raspberry Protein Porridge

Ingredients:

  • 30g vanilla protein powder
  • 1tsp cacao powder
  • 20g oat bran
  • 20g rolled/steel cut oats
  • 10g mixed nuts (I use a mix of almonds, cashews, pistachios, brazil nuts, walnuts and hazelnuts)
  • 2tsp seeds (Chia, Pumpkin, Hemp, Flax and Linseeds are good)
  • 100g strawberries
  • The juice of half an orange (40ml orange juice)
  • 50ml milk

Method:

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and leave in the fridge overnight for best results.
