I'm so in love with these delicious and nutritious, on the go snacks or lunches! They are packed with healthy, plant based proteins, omega 3, fuelled with energy and fruit. As you may know, I usually don't mix fruit with anything else but I have noticed that my body can easily digest these babies! So I'm happy to have them, I feel fuelled, full and ready to go. We've been so busy in the new year with business meetings, getting healthier and reaching new goals. These have been great to bring along to eat in between meetings in an action packed day!
Layer 1: Protein Oats
First, make a batch of oats, Gluten free or steal cut. Add a touch of maple syrup or favourite natural sweetener and mix in. I also added half a banana chopped and them let it cool to touch. Then add a scoop of Chocolate, Arbonne Protein Powder and mix in. add a few spoon-fulls to the bottom of each jar. Flavours are optional- choose your favourite!
Step 2: Pineapple
This fresh pineapple was ripe and sweet so I added a layer on top of the oats. You could use any fruit you have really, whatever is ripe and in season! The pineapple is a great addition to this combo! Strawberries or raspberries would also be delicious if you have them!
Step 3: Blueberries
Blueberries are so good! Good for the health, good for the tastebuds! Filled with antioxidants, nutrients and vitamins, blueberries are a good choice to add to your daily diet! Frozen or fresh, even better if you can find them in your own backyard! Add a layer of these babes to your Jars!
Step 4: Chia Pudding
My favourite is a chia pudding with a little bit of lime juice! It tastes like a key lime pie sorta thing! Mix in a small bowl: three table spoons of chia seeds and one cup of almond or coconut milk. Whisk in one scoop of Arbonne's Vanilla Protein. Let stand in the fridge for 1-2 hours, until pudding like consistency. Chia Seeds are a superfood that will give lots of energy!
Step 5: Mixed Berries
It is winter in Canada so a lot of my fruit is frozen at the moment. It doesn't really matter because they thaw by the time I eat these anyways, but add more fruit or berries! As they thaw, the juices swirl in some extra flavour with the chia as well. From here, I stick the lids on and pop them in the fridge!
Eat and Enjoy!
They are ready to go when you need! I add some fresh banana to the very top and then Enjoy with a spoon! I sprinkled a bit of coconut sugar on top too ;)
Let me know your creations and alterations! I'd love to try out your recipes too!
