Unicorn Protein Toast

Unicorn Protein Toast Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Clean, Simple, No-Nonsense.

It's time to make eating toast for breakfast a whole lot more exciting with this rainbow-coloured protein spread. The finished product might look fancy, but it's super quick to whip up and won't have you slaving away in the kitchen all morning - certain to impress any breakfast guests!

To make 1 unicorn toast: 

Toast your slice of toast whilst you mix 15 tbsp of milk (I used brown rice milk) with 1 scoop of Neat vanilla vegan protein powder, until it's smooth and spreadable. 

Separate the protein spread into 4 parts and mix each section with a different natural colouring before decorating your toast in a pattern of your choice!:

  • 1/3-1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp blueberry powder
  • 1/4- 1/3 tsp beetroot powder
  • 1/4 tsp spirulina powder 

 

Unicorn Protein Balls

Rainbow Coloured Protein Balls Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Clean, Simple, No-Nonsense.

Inject some fun into your usual, on-the-go afternoon snack with these multi-coloured protein balls. Flavoured with vanilla protein and creamy nut butter and coloured using only natural powders - this is a seriously nutritious snack with a unicorn edge. Just be ready for a few strange looks from your co-workers when you whip them out at your desk! 

To make 10 protein balls:  

In a blender mix together:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 scoops of Neat vanilla protein
  • 1/4 cup of nut butter
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 7 tbsp milk (I used brown rice milk)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt

When the mixture has combined enough to press the balls together with your hands, separate your mixture into 4 parts. Mix each section separately with a natural colouring:

  • 1/3-1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp blueberry powder
  • 1/4- 1/3 tsp beetroot powder
  • 1/4 tsp spirulina powder 

To assemble, roll together small parts of each colour to make one ball and decorate with desiccated coconut!
