Breakfast people. Let’s talk about them for a second. Who are they? They’re people who gain an inordinate amount of pleasure from eating breakfast. They’re the ones that wake up really hungry – or sometimes even hangry; the ones who chuckle (while inwardly nodding in agreement) at quotes like “I love sleep because it’s like a time machine to breakfast.”
Breakfast people are usually friendly. They’re the people whose hearts start pounding when they smell pancakes, eggs, or frying bacon first thing in the morning. They’re the people who, at some point or another, thought that the Wake N’ Bacon Alarm was actually a good idea.
You can find breakfast people regularly eyeing up breakfast menus, incapable of making up their minds because they want to eat it all. In fact, they love breakfast foods so much that they could eat them all day long – pancakes for lunch? No problem. Fried eggs as a snacks? Sure! A broccoli and cheese omelette for dinner? Let’s do this.
And they take breakfast seriously, ohhhhh do they take it seriously! You don’t get between a breakfast person and their breakfast. Heck, if you deprive them of breakfast or serve them something mediocre for their first meal, they can get (mildly but noticeably) depressed; sometimes even moody verging on aggressive.
That’s how the Banana Protein Mush came about. It’s a breakfast that ticks every single box for breakfast lovers! It’s rich in calcium, vitamin D, fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium, and protein! It’s free of added-sugars and gluten-free. It’s also really tasty, especially if you like mushes.
To make it, all you do is this:
1 scoop of unflavoured (or vanilla) whey protein powder
1 to 2 scoops of a nice breakfast blend
Milk of choice to bind
1. Get a mug out or, if you thought ahead of time, an empty tupperware or plastic bowl.
2. Add your ‘cereal’ blend first – not the powder (if you add the powder first it’ll get sticky at the bottom and harder to blend)
3. Add chunks of banana. You can cut it up with a spoon into slices or, if you want to go medieval on it, you can cut chunks of it with your mouth and throw that into the bowl. It looks positively ridiculous because it involves you basically ‘spitting out’ chunks of banana so we recommend using an utensil for the job (side note: chopping anything with your mouth will immediately make you feel – and look, like you’re a mother bird feeding your young. Not a look to be aspired to…)
4. Add the powder in and, finally, enough milk to get it to the consistency you want. Then, mix it all in – carefully.
