I love this simple recipe and often share it with friends or on one of the online support groups so I thought why not share it here too.
I make it whilst I am cooking dinner and pop it in the fridge and then I can just grab it in the morning - breakfast with no thinking, works for me!
50 g porridge oats
15 g ground flaxseed
25 g or 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (see below for info)
100 ml almond milk (use whichever milk you like)
50 g yoghurt (I use Skyr or Total as these are the healthiest options)
Put it all in a bowl and mix it up.
Top with some berries - I keep raspberries in the freezer and by morning they have defrosted and are ready to eat.
Here I used fresh strawberries as I do a big one for me and a little one for my daughter and she prefers strawberries!
If you try it, do let me know how you get on.

A note about protein powders - use a reputable brand, there are a lot of 'fakes' about i.e. it doesn't contain the amount of protein stated. For this recipe I like Chocolate Silk from The Protein Works. I buy it online and go for the 100% whey advanced.
