Protein Packed Breakfast Bowl
Tired of that same old breakfast? Time after time, getting up & making the same thing or the easiest thing. Possibly, even skipping breakfast because it is just too rushed of a morning? Not to mention a lot of times when we need to rush breakfast it ends up being not the healthiest. SO low & behold... this wonderful protein packed breakfast!
1. You can prep this breakfast ahead of time
2. Keeps you full longer because the farro & cashew milk pack a protein punch
3. You can adjust it by whatever fresh fruits, dried fruits, nuts, types of milk etc. that you would like to add in there!
4. Get creative! Also perfect for to throw in what you have
What milk or should I say Cashew Milk am I loving in this breakfast bowl?
I love my gluten & my dairy--- but I also love DF options & GF options as well. I also noticed that when I asked you guys about using DF milk 87 % of you said that you all used DF milk. I choose to use DF in smoothies & breakfast bowls etc. because I have dairy in my diet during the day in other areas. For my body I choose to balance areas of my diet without omitting. However, everyone's preference is different & here everyone's preference is welcome! So you will find all kinds of recipes here on Honest Grub, Honest Foodie that promote balance & options for anyone with dietary restrictions :)
Now the one thing with DF milks however, are all the added ingredients. That has always made me weary, because HGHF is all about real food & real ingredients.. so I feel it just never met my standards.
Here are a list of typical ingredients in regular DF milks- varieties of almond, coconut, cashew etc.:
+Cane Sugar,Vitaminand Mineral Blend (Calcium Carbonate,VitaminE Acetate,Vitamin A Palmitate,Vitamin D2),Sea Salt, Gellan Gum, Sunflower Lecithin, Locust Bean Gum, Ascorbic Acid (to protect freshness), Natural Flavor. CONTAINS ALMOND
JOI Plant Basked Milk that I use for this has these ingredients.. or should I say one:
I was so excited with JOI reached out to me wanting me to try their product. They also provided me with a code to give you all 10 percent off your purchase! Now you all know HGHF is not a place where I just take free product & promote away to you guys. I have to love the product to share it with you guys & make sure it aligns with our moto here. I am very picky, picky because I want you all to know how valued you are & only want to share products I can fully back :) So just know that!
So seriously... you guys must check them out here. 1 ingredient, I base that you can make it however you want! I will link it here & then you can use honestfoodie_blog10 at check out & I will show you guys how I use it below!
1 12oz bag of Bob's Red Mill Farro
Cashew Vanilla JOI milk
2 tbsp chopped dried apricot
1 tbsp chopped pecans
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 tsp honey
In high power blender add in 2 tbsp of JOI Cashew Plant Base, 1 cup water, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract & 1 large date ( make sure you take the pit out), blend on high power for 30 seconds. Pour into air tight container & refrigerate until ready to use!
Cook 1 cup farro per bagged instructions ( this will make 4 servings about 2 cups for the week) then double or triple the cashew milk recipe above to make more milk for week ahead as well!
Then in bowl add in farro, pour fresh cashew milk on top, add in dried apricots, pecans, blueberries & strawberries (Make sure to microwave with the blueberries & strawberries in it). Microwave for 30 to 60 seconds. If the milk & farro was just made they both will be warm so 30 seconds will do, however if they are both cold, when you are making this later in the week go for 60.
Then add in the honey, mix & enjoy!
Thank you for looking at this scrumptious recipe!! Remember to follow me @honestfoodie_blog and #honestgrubhonestfoodie to let me know what you are making!
