INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup oats (gluten-free or regular)
  • 1/2 cup coconut or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein ice cream

DIRECTIONS

  • In a nonstick pot, bring your milk and oats to a boil. Allow it to simmer for 3-5 minutes until you get a thick and "porridgy" consistency.
  • Remove oatmeal from the heat and let it cool before adding the rest of the ingredients. Add the whey after you cook the oats, or it will curdle.
  • If you like your oatmeal thicker, add a bit less milk. If you like your oats runnier, add a bit more milk.
  • For a dessert-like treat, top with your favorite protein ice cream. You can use either a store-bought one, or make your own version.
