I really like to start off my mornings with something warm.
Yes, coffee, of course!
But after that, I still long for something hot and toasty to soothe both my belly and my soul.
I also crave protein –
– but with that yearning for warmth, strength, and energy, sometimes it’s just nice to have a little bit of a not so typical sweet treat amid my surplus of savory sunrises.
Say hello to “Beatrice” our morning owl.
Vanilla Protein Custard
1 tsp. coconut oil, melted
1/2 medium banana, mashed
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder – with greens, hence the slimy grimy color
1 tsp. raw honey (optional – depending upon the sweetness of the protein powder)
1/4 tsp. vanilla salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a smallish size mug and microwave for 60 seconds. Alternatively, you may bake in the oven at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.
