Festive Protein Delights

By Rebecca Hughes from Barefoot Coconut

As belt buckles loosen and we all let it go for the festive season, here’s a few protein packed recipes to ensure those gym shorts still fit come January!

 

  1. Easy Berry Protein Oats

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop (20 to 30g) Kinetica Thermo Whey Wild Raspberry or Whey Protein Strawberry

  • 80g oats

  • 1 handful frozen blackforest fruit mix (such as blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries and cherries)

  • Hot water

  • Optional: Cinnamon, honey, top with fruits, greek yoghurt, cacao nibs, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds, and/or nut butter. Whatever you fancy.

 **If necessary, alter the quantities of oats and fruit to suit your nutritional needs.

 Method

  1. Measure the oats and add to a bowl.

  2. Add the frozen berries to the bowl.

  3. Boil the water.

  4. Pour the hot water over the oats and berries, ensure it covers the oats. It’s best to add more than less, as too little will leave the oats dry. Just don’t have the oats drowning!

  5. Add cinnamon if using – as much as you like. Stir together.

  6. Add the protein powder and stir until well combined with no traces of powder.

  7. Leave to soak for 10 to 20 minutes (best to prepare first thing before getting ready, then get ready for your day whilst the oats soak).

  8. Once soaked add honey on top if using.

  9. Add the berry protein cream if using. *See recipe below.

  10. If adding extra toppings add them now!

  11. Enjoy!

 Ingredients

Method

  1. Mix 100g of the greek yoghurt with the Kinetica Oat Gain Raspberry Yoghurt in a small bowl until no traces of powder.

  2. Mix 100g of the greek yoghurt with one of the Kinetica chocolate protein powders in a small bowl until no traces of powder.

  3. Place these yoghurt mixes in the fridge whilst preparing the fruit.

  4. Add the frozen blackforest fruit to a small pan. Heat the pan to a low to medium heat to lightly soften the fruit. Add a little water if required to avoid the fruit sticking to the pan. Once the fruit is slightly softened remove the pan from the heat.

  5. Add the blackforest fruit to a small glass or jar.

  6. Remove the yoghurt mixes from the fridge.

  7. Add the raspberry yoghurt on top of the blackforest fruit.

  8. Add pieces of the citrus fruit on top of the raspberry yoghurt.

  9. Then add the chocolate yoghurt on top of the citrus fruit.

  10. To finish sprinkle cacao nibs or dark chocolate shavings on top.
