This Vegan Snickers Mighty Morning Milkshake (v) has all the chocolatey, peanut flavour of a snickers with enough of the nutritional good stuff that you can legit enjoy it for breakfast 🙂
The mornings have been a bit difficult lately. I’m waking up late and still feeling tired. I think it’s the heat.
I’d love to get up slowly, saunter downstairs looking perfect and spend the next hour lovingly preparing a healthy, nutritious breakfast.
The truth is usually closer to a quick pat down of the frizzy hair, some smudged eye liner and 5 mins to make breakfast to go.
A Fruit Too Far
I like fruit smoothies and I’ve had my fair share, but these days I’ve been craving something more mellow.
The soft creaminess of this Snickers morning milkshake is hard to beat – no pips, no skin, no weird separation!
It is silky smooth, sweet and velvety with enough body and protein to keep you full for at least a good few hours until elevenses. If you’re extra hungry, try dunking these Vegan Peanut Butter, Oat & Chocolate Chip Cookies …pudding for brekko 🙂
If you have leftovers you can use to make frozen treats! The mix will probably want sweetening a little with your choice of sweetener – agave or maple syrup perhaps – then you’ll have healthy, protein packed mini-milk like treats!
I calculated the nutritional information below using the measurements given in the recipe. You may want to tweak these to suit your own tastes as far as flavour and texture go. The vanilla paste/maple syrup is optional for those who prefer a sweeter milkshake.
This smoothie is a great way to start the day. Sometimes when it’s hot I’m not feeling food in the mornings, but I don’t want to skip the meal altogether as I later have to worry about getting all the necessary nutrients into the two remaining meals.
This vegan shake has roughly a 3rd of your daily protein, fat (healthy monounsaturated fats and Omega 3) and fibre needs covered – all from healthy plant-based sources.
Plus, with the added calcium, vitamin D and B12 from the fortified milk, you’re getting a lot of nutritional bang for your milkshakey buck.
Why Not Try…
If breakfast drinks are your thing you might like this Honey Nut Breakfast Oat Smoothie or if you can’t get enough chocolate and peanut butter then this Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie (No Bake) could be your next obsession 😉
