The other day I felt inspired to experiment and try to create a protein mocha, I know you can buy mocha flavoured protein, but as I love using Missfit Nutrition’s Multitasker vegan protein sachets, and as they do a coffee flavoured protein, I wanted to see if I could come up with something delicious… and I did! So here is the recipe for you to try out if you’d like:
- 200ml almond milk
- 100ml water
- 1 sachet Missfits Nutrition Multitasker (coffee flavour)
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tsp honey or maple syrup
First of all blend the almond milk, water and protein powder, I blend mine in my nutribullet as I find it mixes it the best, then pour the mixture into a small saucepan over a medium heat. Add the cacao powder and stir until any lumps are gone and it’s mixed in, then add the honey or maple syrup and stir. Once the mixture starts to boil, turn it down and serve. You can always add some cinnamon or anything else to spice it up! Enjoy 🙂

Since deciding to cut out all animal products I have tried a few recipes for vegan pancakes, and I have finally found the perfect recipe! Not only that, they’re protein pancakes! After I got my hands on Nutristrength’s Pea Cocoa Protein Powder, I decided to give them a whirl and they came out SO GOOD.
Here’s the recipe
- 1/3 cup Nutristrength Pea Protein
- 1/3 cup ground almonds
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/3 cup soy yoghurt
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1 table spoon vanilla bean paste
- Coconut oil for the pan (I used Nutristrength coconut oil)
- Mix protein powder, ground almonds, and baking powder together in a bowl.
- Next, add the milk, yoghurt, banana and vanilla extract to your blender and blend together.
- Add the dry mixture to the wet blended mixture and stir together until there are no more bumps.
- Heat a medium sized frying pan over a low to medium heat, and add a small amount of coconut oil to the pan.
- Spoon a table spoon of mixture into the centre of the pan. As the texture is different to normal pancakes, it may not bubble as usual, and in my experience they take a lot longer than regular pancakes, so wait until the mixture is set and be careful when flipping!
- Serve them up with your favourite toppings, my go to is almond butter, pomegranate seeds, banana and strawberries!
I am so so glad that I have found a recipe that works! And Nutristrength’s products so far have been amazing, I love that non-dairy and vegan supplements are becoming more easily available for us! Nutristrength is now available in Planet Organic, Wholefoods and As Nature Intended, which is awesome!

Let me know if you try the recipe, would love to know what you think! xo
These pancakes are the ultimate kickstart to your weekend, boosted with protein and maca powder, you’re definitely going to be energised after these!
Makes: 1 Serving
One of the reasons I love to make these pancakes it because they are SO easy to make! Just whizz everything up in a blender, heat a small frying pan to a medium heat, when the pan is hot, add a smidgen of coconut oil to grease it. Pour a small amount of the mixture, enough to make a pancake that is half a cm thick and 5 cm in diameter (or just wing it like I do!). Heat the pancake on one side for a couple of minutes, my trick is to watch and when the small bubbles start to burst on top, I flip it with a spatula.
If you want an EXTRA boost, then add half a teaspoon of matcha tea powder (my fave is EatCleanTea matcha)
Do this until you have used up all of the mixture, add the toppings that you’d like, take a pretty picture and make sure you tag me on Instragram (@hannahrosefit) so I can see!
This recipe is one of my favourites! It is super easy to do and is delicious, as well as being packed with awesome nutrients such as Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants from the chia seeds (which should be renamed to seeds of magic haha).
- 4 tbsp chia seeds
- 250ml almond milk
- 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt (or dairy-free alternative)
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
Just put everything together in a jar and mix together, stick it in the fridge overnight and by the morning you’ll have your chia seed pudding! I usually have mine with strawberries or blueberries. You can even take this in a jar and have it at work if you tend to eat your breakkies at work!
Whenever I get that familiar feeling that my body is trying to fight off a cold or a virus of some sort, this is my go to smoothie! It has some powerful ingredients in it that are great for boosting the immune system and giving it that kick it needs to help fight off that cold!
- a handful of spinach
- juice of half a lime
- 40g raspberries
- 200ml coconut water
- 1 teaspoon spirulina
- 1 inch of ginger
Peel the ginger and place it, along with everything else into a blender and blend until smooth. Easy! Enjoy, and hope you get better soon (if you’re ill that is!)
