Last week an extremely exciting package arrived at my door! Kauai sent me a box full of vegan goodies, including my favourite raw bars and the Kauai Strawberry Protein Powder!
I have never really been one for protein powders, but I decided to give this one a go because I know the Kauai brand well and I seriously love their food. And goodness I am glad I gave their Protein Powder a try, I am loving it. Since receiving the package I have used the Strawberry Protein Powder in smoothies, pancakes, and beautiful smoothie bowls like the one you see here.
In all honesty, I have been using this product purely for the yumminess it adds to my sweet breakfasts, and very little for the extra protein – which I feel I am already getting from my diet. So for that reason, you know it must taste good!
If you are not one for strawberry flavours, Kauai has a vanilla and chocolate protein powder too, and I am sure they are both delicious as well.
Let me describe the product to you a bit more so you can decide whether or not you’d like to give it a go! Unlike many other protein powders, this one doesn’t have that distinct earthy taste, rather it tastes very much like strawberries and is super sweet! What I like about the sweetness is you can leave out any other sweetness you would usually add to a pancake mix, smoothie or smoothie bowl!
This is how I made my four ingredient Kauai Strawberry Protein Smoothie Bowl…
- 2 frozen bananas
- 10 frozen strawberries
- 1 scoop Kauai Strawberry Protein Powder
- 1 cup almond mylk
Toppings: Strawberries, desiccated coconut & buckinis.
- Place the almond mylk or plant mylk of choice along with the scoop of protein into a high-speed blender (I use my NutriBullet) and blend well to combine. Blending these together first helps to remove any grainy texture from the protein powder.
- Add the frozen bananas and strawberries and blend again until at an ice-cream consistency. Add more mylk if needed.
Serving suggestion: Top with your favourite nut butter for a creamy addition to this deliciously sweet bowl.
This bowl is…
This product is now stocked by all Checkers branches which makes sourcing it so easy. It is much more affordable than other plant-based and vegan protein powders, which I am definitely happy about! Who says being healthy needs to be expensive when you know what to shop for. I for one am all about an inexpensive road to health and wellness.
So that is it! This four ingredient bowl of goodness fits perfectly into a busy lifestyle and is full of plant goodness! I am so excited for the weather to start warming up so that this can become my go to breakfast in the mornings – I’ll definitely give oats a skip for this one.
If you are a fan of Plant Protein Powders and love using them in recipes, I would love to hear from you! Please share below in the comments and I’ll give it a try!
Stay warm Cape Town!
