Day of Feasts. Much like every other day, then…

Sometimes, when you wake up in the morning and go for a swim before 7am you reaaally need to eat a very special breakfast. And so, I give you:

Three Scoop Ice-Cream Porridge!

This is magical and makes it feel like holidays. Plus, it only takes a few minutes.

Serves 1

  • 1 tbsp Oats (or any other favourite grain – barley is a great one)
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 200ml chocolate “milk” (you could sub for water and cocoa powder)
  • Three scoops of ice cream (I used Freedom chocolate and vanilla and Swedish Glace Blueberry)
  • Sprinkle of granola/nuts/dried fruit

The results:


So, how do you follow a breakfast like that?

With a dinner like this of course!

Shared with your bestest buddy!

What you’re looking at is onion buckwheat with pumpkin curry and coconut, kale and butternut squash (yay!) curry with yellow lentil dhal on the side. And a slice of oat bread toast (Naoms’ idea) and a glass of chocolate soy milk. All this added together = 2 happy vegans! (Good thing I’m taking maths).

And a few happy non-vegans too.

If anybody asks for the recipe(s) I’ll divulge.

Questions of the day:

What’s your favourite oatmeal topper? Does it make you happy when you make super healthy food and everybody thinks it tastes more awesome than a greasy, processed takeaway? And do you like to swim (in the morning)? I do!

PS – tomorrow morning there’s gonna be an ice cream oatmeal experiment in the vein of this post by my favourite vegan blogger Chocolate-Covered Katie. Wish me luck!

  1. Spiffing! I like fresh fruit on oatmeal, occasionally with youghurt; I have never managed to cook anything healthy, so I wouldn’t know, and I dislike exercise and I dislike mornings, so the very concept of early morning exercise is against my nature.

  2. Waiiit, what?
    Where’s Naomi?
    Who’s the ginger?
    I’m SO confused! 😮
    Ps, that breakfast looked a lot nicer than I suspect it tastes…

    • Naomi is out-of-shot, she’s the other “happy vegan” :p
      The ginge is Roanna, silly!
      And the breakfast was delishh, I’ll have you know! Maybe I’ll make it for you some time…

  3. Aww it looks like so much fun. I wish someone would cook a vegan feast for me. I always have to cook my own :(.
    Happy Friday :).

    Your breakfast looks delish! My favorite oatmeal toppings are nut butter and bananas 🙂

    Would you be able to briefly describe in a little more detail how to make the coconut and kale curry? I’m also using tofu and butternut squash x 🙂
