I’ve recently discovered this vegan yogurt/protein powder combo and it’s honestly such a breakfast game changer. It keeps me feeling full for a few hours so I don’t feel the need to snack before having lunch. This vegan protein yogurt bowl recipe is so simple but tastes amazing- it’s so creamy that it could pass for a dessert!
I never used to be that into using protein powders but ever since trying FreeSoul I can confidently say I’ve been converted. This brand has specially formulated its powders for women as it’s fortified with nutrients like iron, folic acid and calcium (which young women are often deficient in). Their vegan blend is also fortified with vitamin b12 which is so good considering b12 is not found in plant foods. You can find out more about FreeSoul (including the different flavours they do) by visiting their website.
If you want to try out more protein powder recipes then you can have a go at these:
I used 30g of protein powder for this recipe which contains 20g of protein, plus 30% of the recommended daily intake of iron and b12. I’ve included the nutritional info for the protein powder from FreeSoul’s website below if you want to have a closer look.
My favourite vegan yogurt is the Alpro Greek Style because it’s soooo creamy and doesn’t have a weird aftertaste. A quick note though, if you’re using another yogurt alternative you might want to add less milk than I did in this recipe as other yogurts tend to be runnier.
I personally like to top mine with fruits like bananas, blueberries and strawberries, then I sprinkle a bit of granola for some added crunch. You can be as creative as you like with the toppings for your vegan protein yogurt bowl though depending on what you have in- I reckon kiwi, pineapple and banana would be a nice tropical twist to this.
Vegan Protein Yogurt Bowl
This is a perfect high protein breakfast option to keep you feeling satisfied until lunch time.
For the yogurt bowl
- 2 scoops Free Soul vanilla protein powder (around 30g)
- 100 g Alpro greek style yogurt (or yogurt alternative of you choice)
- 50 ml soya milk (use less or no soya milk if you are using a thin yogurt)
- Sliced fruit of your choice
- 1 small handful granola (I look for a low sugar variety)
- 1 small handful seeds of your choice (optional)
Add the protein powder to your favourite breakfast bowl, followed by the vegan yogurt and stir (it will be really thick at this point)
Slowly add the soya milk (add more of less milk until it reaches your desired consistency)
Top the bowl with slices of your favourite fruits/seeds/granola
