Salted caramel. One of those flavours that almost instantly makes my mouth water. I’m usually too impatient to wait until after dinner for my sweet fix, so I love dessert flavoured breakfast bowls. These salted caramel smoothie bowls taste heavenly and I can’t wait to share this recipe with you! They only take a couple of minutes to prepare and are fuelling me through my busy days at the minute.
Traditional salted caramel is usually loaded with sugar and has zero nutritional value, so I took it to the next level and made these refined sugar free and full of ingredients that love your body! They’re loaded with pea and brown rice protein, B vitamins and all nine essential amino acids thanks to the delicious NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN Natural Vanilla from WelleCo.
One scoop contains 19g of easy to digest plant based protein (made from sprouted brown rice and peas) so it’s a great option to add to your breakfast or post workout smoothie. It contains pre and probiotics, which help to support gut health and digestion.
It has the most creamy, subtly sweet vanilla flavour that works a treat with bananas and dates, the main ingredients for this bowl. I’m a huge fan of vanilla but rarely find anything that actually tastes like vanilla without being overly sickly or sweet – this Nourishing Protein hits the spot, it’s just perfect! It’s so good you can completely skip using any vanilla extract – which is great as vanilla is more expensive than silver at the minute!
You can top these bowls with whatever you have lying around, but I went for rawnola, dark chocolate, almonds, banana, cinnamon, lightly toasted coconut chips and quinoa puffs. My rule for toppings is always to add lots of different textures, I love a smooth spoonful of smoothie with some crunchy seeds or nuts – heaven!
If you’re in a rush, just add a little more almond milk and drink from a glass. My preference is always for a bowl over a glass though, because it’s all about the toppings, am I right?!

- Naturally sweetened
