The BEST Vegan Breakfast Smoothie (Mousse??)

photo-1So Jon and I are huge oatmeal junkies. Pretty much for the last year every morning we make some kind of oatmeal concoction for breakfast. How are we not sick of it? Well the beauty about oatmeal is you can spice it up in so many ways by just adding different mix-ins (shout out to all those that participated in our recent oatmeal recipe contest and gave us some great ideas)!

However, the form is something that gets a bit tricky to change. Whether steel-cut, overnight, or quick oats, they are pretty much all in the same form when they are prepared and relatively same texture…and this started to get boring. We wanted to switch this up. So, we tossed pretty much all the ingredients in our  usual breakfast into a Vitamix and to our surprise we created a wicked creation! This didn’t turn out to be your classic sippable smoothie but rather a mousse like blend of greatness. How?! We were wondering the same thing and were completely stumped until we realized that we added HOT coffee into the mix with quick cut oats. As you start blending the coffee together with the oats, the oats begin to cook  and out comes this almost “gelatonous” form smoothie that one can only eat in a respectable manner by using a spoon. Those in my opinion are the best kind of “smoothies”…ones so thick they need to be eaten with a spoon in order to avoid dumping the whole thing on your face in one go. Beauty about this recipe is you prepare it the night before in order to allow it time to cool and take that unique form and therefore it is ready to grab-n-go in the morning.


So with all of that being said here is the recipe to The Best Breakfast Shake/Mousse out there…

– 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats

– 1.5 cups of freshly brewed HOT coffee (if you don’t like coffee you can just add hot water)

– 1 scoop Prairie Naturals Hemp Protein


– 1 banana

– 1.5 Tbsp cacao powder

– 1 tsp maca powder

– 1 tsp chia seeds

– 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Optional add-ins:

– 1 Tbsp nut butter

– 2 Tbsp shredded coconut

– 1 Tbsp MCT oil

– 1 Tbsp flax seed powder

– 1 Tbsp agave or maple syrup (if you like your breakfast a bit more on the sweeter side)

Blend all of the ingredients together in a Vitamix for about a minute. Pour into a shaker cup and pop it in the fridge overnight. In the morning grab your spoon and dig in:)
