Ingredients – serves 1
1 cup of seasonal fruit of your choice – paw paw, nectarines, mango
2 tablespoons of pure whey protein or pea protein powder
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1 tablespoon of linseed meal or chia seeds
2 tablespoons of a whole grain of your choice – rolled oats, muesli or cooked quinoa
1 pinch of ground cinnamon

First dissolve the protein powder with a half the quantity of coconut milk. Add the sweetener if you are using it in this step. Once dissolved, add the remaining coconut milk.
Cut the fruit into small chunks and place gently in a bowl and pour over the milk mix.
Sprinkle linseed meal or chia seeds and a whole grain of your choice on top. I use fruit free muesli.
Finish with a topping of your choice – berries or my famous berry good sauce and a pinch of cinnamon to decorate.
