Blueberry Banana Rice Cake Mousse High Protein

Blueberry Banana Rice Cake Mousse High Protein

So it's early in the morning and you're getting ready to go out and conquer the day, you've checked every box of your morning routine, and the only thing left is breakfast, which should be pretty easy since you planed ahead and you're having overnight oats topped with fruit. 

You're feeling pretty good about yourself, you head to the kitchen full of confidence, open the the fridge door just to realise you forgot to set the oats last night!!

OK, now don't panic! We can still save that epic morning you're having. I have, what one would call an ace under the sleeve with this next recipe to make sure you never miss breakfast again, the most important meal of the day. 

This blueberry, banana rice cake mousse is seriously a life saver in the mornings, it is ready in less than 10 minutes, it's packed with nutrients and it's a great source of protein, all the good stuff you'll need to finish off your perfect morning routine.

To make it this mousse you just need to put the almond milk, bananas, chia seeds, peanut butter, protein powder and the rice cakes in the blender and blend away, serve it with some blueberries on top and you are done, it is seriously that easy and that quick to make. 

It is not only easy and fast to make, it's also super healthy, here are some of the benefits you'll be getting with this lovely mousse:

Almond milk: Boosts immune system and helps repair skin.

Bananas: Good for weight loss and treating anemia.

Chia seeds: Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and anti-inflammatory properties. 

Peanut butter: Promotes muscle and bone growth. 

Blueberries: Packed with antioxidants and improve digestion.

The rice cakes don't really contribute any vitamins or minerals, but are super low on fat and carbs, so it makes for a great snack on it's own or in this case it adds body to the mousse making it nice and fluffy without having that rich and dense consistency you get when blending oats. As an added bonus they'll give a slight "roasted" taste to the mousse that makes it absolutely delicious. 

We are dealing with a protein powerhouse here, a single serving will provide 19g of quality plant based protein, so I really like to have it not only for breakfast but as a post work out snack to get those gains going and allow my body to recover. 

Even though it is very quick to make, if you want to be ahead of your game you can also make it the night before and keep it in the fridge in an airtight container. It keeps quite well and it tastes really good when it’s been chilled overnight.

One last tip, to add a bit of texture throw in some rice cake crumbles just before you are about to eat it and you'll get those nice crunchy surprises as you go.
