I am so excited to announce that this year I will be taking part in Provamel’s Pro campaign! The campaign is all about encouraging people to make positive choices when it comes to food and drink – which means being Pro 100% plant-based, Pro organic and Pro ethically sourced products that respect our environment.
That’s why I‘m thrilled to have teamed up with them to create two delicious recipes which will see you through any busy day – with Provamel’s delicious range of plant-based alternatives to yogurt and drinks the breakfast possibilities really are endless!
I’m kicking off by showing you how easy it can be to be a Pro at breakfast, using Provamel’s Almond Unsweetened drink to whip up this warming winter bowl. We all know Mondays are never easy, especially cold, dark winter mornings when we just want to stay in bed as long as possible. I have to admit that I am not exactly a morning person but what always gets me out of bed is a warming and delicious breakfast. Who knows, my tasty Tumeric and Apple Porridge might even make you Pro Mondays?!
Provamel offers a 100% plant-based range of organic and GMO free drinks and alternatives to yogurt. They have a wide range of different products, from soya to almond, from oats to coconut, so it’s super easy to find a plant-based option that you like. All their ingredients are sourced as close to home as possible (for example they use almonds from Europe and not California) making their products even greener and more sustainable.
It might sound like a cliché but breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day, and it’s easier than you think to make it a healthy one. Porridge is always my number one choice when it comes to an easy and quick winter breakfast as it takes no time to make, plus it will keep me full for longer. I find when I don’t have breakfast in the morning by midday I am already starving and I feel peckish all throughout the day. A nutritious and balanced breakfast will not only give you the energy to face the day ahead but it will also prevent you from mindless snacking. I have been loving using Provamel Almond Unsweetened drink in my porridge as it’s completely sugars free and makes the porridge super creamy! Another favourite of mine for hot drinks, like a matcha latte or turmeric latte, is Provamel Soya Unsweetened drink as it has a very subtle flavour and I actually find that it froths really well when heated up.
If you are not a breakfast person I really hope you will at least give the below recipe a try as it’s by far one of my favourite winter breakfasts, which makes me feel so satisfied every time I make it – you’ll be Pro breakfast before you know it!
This porridge is such a warming and comforting breakfast, especially if you are feeling a bit run down. I love the earthy turmeric flavour combined with the spicy ginger and the sweetness of the apple. I have used Provamel Almond Unsweetened drink which makes it super creamy, without adding any sugar. To make it even more delicious top with peanut butter, maple syrup and some crunchy coconut chips.
1 cup of porridge oats
1 apple, skin on – grated
About 1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder or freshly grated turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
500ml of Provamel Almond Unsweetened drink
For the toppings:
A handful of berries of your choice
1 apple, sliced
A drizzle of maple syrup
A handful of coconut chips
A drizzle of maple syrup
Place the oats into a pan with the Provamel Almond Unsweetened drink. Add the grated apple, turmeric and ginger. Let the porridge cook over a medium/low heat for about 8-10 minutes, stirring from time to time and adding a little water if needed. The porridge is ready when it’s thick and gloopy, and the oats are soft.
Serve the porridge immediately with berries, sliced apple, maple syrup, coconut chips and some peanut butter.
