Hello my lovelies and happy Friday!
Hope you all have a fun-filled yet relaxing weekend! I’ve already gotten mine off to a good start.
Knowing I wouldn’t have time to get a workout in later today (BB is coming over right after work today to spend the weekend with me), as soon as I got up this morning, I changed and was back to the gym…hmm, only 12 hours since my last workout…but don’t worry, I focussed on a whole other area of the body today.
It’s been rainy and nasty outside for the last couple of days and when I made it back to the house after my workout, I knew I wanted something warm and comforting for breakfast…but it had to be something to help with muscle recovery too.
And then a little lightbulb went off!
Vegan Pumpkin Eggnog Oats
Prep Time: 2-3 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes
Keywords: microwave breakfast dairy-free high protein vegan vegetarian oats pumpkin puree winter
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup Silk Soy Nog
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 scoop vegan protein powder (optional)
- 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1. Combine oats, eggnog, water, vanilla extract, and protein powder (if using) in a microwave-safe bowl and cook for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through.
2. After cooking, stir in the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice (oats will still be watery until after the addition of the pumpkin).
3. Top with your favorite granola, fresh or dried fruit, and/or nuts.
I chose to top mine with a little LOVE!
I may not be the next Love Blogger (sadly, I did not win this year, but I thank you all for the votes), but I still know how to spread some love! 🙂
I also ‘nogged up my coffee!
If you remember, I bought the Silk Nog last year around this time, but wasn’t much of a fan of the sweetness, but when mixed in other things, like coffee and oatmeal, it lends the perfect flavor without the overwhelming sweet taste.
Fueling my muscles never tasted so good!
Now before I go and primp for BB’s visit, I’ll get down to what I know a lot of you are eagerly anticipating…
The Blissful Bites Cookbook Giveaway winner!
Hmm, who could lucky number 50 be??
Congratulations Andreea! Just send me an email so I can shoot it on over to Christy’s marketing crew and they will have it in the mail as soon as possible! Hopefully you will be able to try out some of those recipes just in time for Christmas! 🙂
Thank you all for entering the giveaway! And don’t worry, I may have a thing or two in the works for another one real soon! 😉
Do you like egg nog (vegan or regular), boiled custard, or are you more of a mulled apple cider sort of person?
Any exciting plans for the weekend? Do tell!
