Spiced Maca Protein Breakfast

Vegan, guilt-free, gluten-free, non-gmo protein breakfast. 

Hello!  Happy Saturday.

What a hectic week!  I have so many things going on  and I am overwhelmed.  But, I have to finish this post because I mentioned that I will be sharing my recipe for this  nutritious, delectable breakfast. Also, because someone asked me to share tips on photography and I promised to do so in this post.

About photography, I wasn’t going to share this photograph because I wasn’t happy with the result (go figure), but oh, well.  Also, there is no secret really. First and foremost, you want to make sure you get a clear shot. Then, use a photo editor and manipulate until you get the result that you are happy with. If you are using a cellphone, check to see if it has a photo editor feature.  If so, try to practice until you get the hang of it.

Anyway, I could barely keep my eyes open. So, without further ado, here’s the recipe.

For the Matcha and Spinach Pudding (bottom layer)

  • 1/2 cup organic unsweetened coconut milk (beverage) or almond, rice milk, or oat milk
  • 3 Tablespoons organic, non-gmo, gluten-free chia seeds
  • 3 Tablespoons non-dairy, non-gmo, unsweetened coconut yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon organic matcha powder
  • a handful of organic, non-gmo spinach
  • 1 Tablespoon or more organic raw blue agave or organic 100% maple syrup to taste (optional)

Add and blend all ingredients in a food processor or a powerful blender for about 1 to 2 minutes.  Place in a jar with a lid. Leave in the refrigerator overnight.

For the Maca Protein Nicecream (top layer)

  • 4 frozen bananas (sliced about an inch thick before freezing)
  • 2 heaped Tablespoons PB2
  • 1/2 Tablespoon organic Maca powder (available online or at Wegman’s)
  • 1/2 of small organic apple
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon spice
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 scoop vegan protein powder with chia and probiotics (available at Wegman’s)
  • Organic raw blue agave or maple syrup to taste (optional)

Add all ingredients in a powerful blender or food processor.  Process until smooth about 3-5 minutes.

For the PB2 Chocolate Drizzle

  • 2 Tablespoons organic, gluten-free, non-gmo PB2 powder (leveled)
  • 1 Tablespoon organic non-gmo blue raw agave
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons warm non-gmo coconut milk
  • 1/2  Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Add and whisk all ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle on top of your favorite smoothies.

Assemble your breakfast jar/glass

  • Remove the Matcha Chia pudding from the refrigerator. Scoop and place at the bottom of a jar or a glass then, layer by adding homemade granola or store-bought gluten-free, non-gmo granola.
  • Then, add berries or any fruits. Scoop the Maca Protein nicecream on top. Drizzle with the PB2 chocolate.
  • Enjoy!

There you have it. You can now create your own stunning breakfast jar.  I will leave this post for now. I am exhausted and could barely keep my eyes open.  I just wanted to keep my promise that is why I have to post this. I will visit your blog and reply to all your comments next time.  Have a fabulous weekend. Goodnight. ❤ 🙂

  1. My hats off to you to be able to work around life and blog too! It is hard and I have to let some things go in order to make time for others. I don’t post as often as id like to, but I really do try to read as many blogs as I can. The projects I’ve got going on require so much that by the end of the day, I’m spent. My daughter loves matcha! I need to make this for her. Love your photos. So pro! Have a beautiful day! Koko:)

    • Eartha, it’s nice you stopped by. Thank you so much. I would have like for the nicecream to not melt until after I took a shot, but, I had to do something and left it for 30 seconds and it started melting on me lol. But, thanks for liking it the way it is. He he…(where are the emojis?) 😀
