Mocha Protein Shake

protein 3

That protein kindly sent us some of their protein so we decided to make a delicious post work out shake because we love them. We used the ‘Chirpy Chirpy Choca Mocha with organic coffee’ protein.

That Protein is a plant based protein powder and for once the protein actually tastes great. They are dairy free, no added sugars, non GMO, no sweeteners and free from anything artificial.

We decided to add a couple of other ingredients to make our shake thick and creamy- the best way to have a shake. We have tried it with just water though when we have been in a rush leaving the gym and it still tastes great!

Recipe
1 scoop of that protein mocha flavour
1 banana
8 frozen cherries(3 for decoration)
Handful of ice
Almond milk
Tea spoon cacao nibs (leave some for decoration)

Place all the ingredients in a blender and whizz it up until combined! Top tip always put your protein in last so it doesn’t get stuck to the sides (its a nightmare if it does and you will find yourself shaking the blender trying to get it to combine).

A super easy recipe to follow!

The Porridge Series-2 (A taste of Autumn) 

Autumn is without a doubt one of our favourite times of year, we absolutely love summer but there is something about autumn that is so comforting. Grabbing a jumper and getting cosy on the sofa whilst sipping a hot beverage is perfection.

Nothing quite says autumn like the delicious spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves oh the list could go on for days.

In our porridge we decided to use Cinnamon. Cinnamon has been used for decades in both sweet and savoury dishes which you can buy either ground or rolled up as a stick.
This spiced apple porridge reminds us of a hot apple pie!
