Ask most people what they have for breakfast and they tell you that it is limited to maybe a bit of cereal or porridge. They may stretch out to a cooked breakfast if they can be bothered to make it at the weekend (with a hangover). But it’s not until you actually start thinking about breakfast ideas that you realise there’s an abundance of ways to make the first meal of the day exciting. And the best bit? You don’t have to wake up extra early to make it either as I found out during my Alpro breakfast challenge.
Some Of Those Brekkie Ideas
On The go Protein Bars
In fact one of the first breakfast idea I come up with using Alpro milk, I made the night before. My ‘On the go Protein Bars’. I simply mixed together six scoops of protein powder, (I used Smart Tec Nutrition Vanilla flavoured protein), with six scoops of oats, six teaspoons of cashew butter and a quarter cup of Alpro Almond milk. I flattened the mixture out on a tray and popped it into the fridge to set. In the morning the bars were good to go after I divided them into six pieces.
Spinach, oats and Alpro milk smoothie
Mix together 200ml of Alpro Hazelnut milk together with 25g of oats a handful or two of spinach with some crushed ice and blend.
Almond Milk Cappuccino
In a pan heat up the almond milk and stir in a spoonful of coffee.add some water if you want to think out the milk and allow the coffee to dissolve. Add a spoonful of honey to taste. Pour into a cup, sprinkle with some cinnamon. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
Alpro Yoghurt with Mixed Nuts and Dried fruit
Pour some Alpro yoghurt into a bowl, sprinkle on some dried fruits and nuts, stir in a drizzle of agave syrup. Now grab a spoon and tuck in.
So as you can see these are just some ideas I came up with that I thought I’d share with you, but there are many more, like oat pancakes, scrambled eggs with milk, muesli and yoghurt. Breakfast should never be boring. It’s the first meal of the day so should be seen as good fuel to get you going for the rest of the day. Enjoy your next breakfast :-)
