Here’s a perfect quick and easy recipe for Chocolate Protein Porridge – and Ice Cream! This is a quick and easy ‘dessert’ that takes only a few minutes to prepare and delivers that hot pudding and cold ice cream experience you sometimes get with restaurant puddings? It is delicious and, the best part? It is high in protein, packed with oaty goodness, and actually good for you! You’ve got to give this a go.
If you want to make your protein porridge vegan, you can add a scoop of your favourite vegan protein powder instead of whey and use a vegan protein ice cream. Play around with your flavours too! Consider, for example, using an apple & cinnamon protein powder for a lovely autumnal bowl of porridge. The sky is the limit! Just have fun 🙂
1/4 cup rolled oats (gluten free or regular)
1 tablespoon 100% cocoa powder
1/4 cup vanilla whey protein (you can use our Whey 360, Whey 360 Extreme, or if you want to go vegan our Vegan Wondershake)
1 cup milk (any will do)
1/2 teaspoon toffee stevia (it’s optional but really nice)
For the topping:
1 pot protein ice cream – or your favourite ice cream
1. Place the milk, oats, stevia, and cocoa powder in a pot and heat it up until your desired oatmeal (or porridge) consistency is reached. Some people like their oatmeal super thick while others don’t so just stir it until it gets to where you want it.
2. Once cooked, remove the oatmeal from the stove and let it cool for a couple of minutes before mixing in your whey. The reason it’s best to add the whey AFTER the oatmeal is made is because you want to ensure the whey doesn’t cook because, if it does, it can get all lumpy and we don’t want that – we want our oatmeal smooth and creamy.
3. Get some protein ice cream out of the freezer. You can use whey but if you don’t have access to it for some reason remember you can always make your own.
4. Go ahead and eat that ice cream! You deserve it.
