How to Make Protein Powder Oatmeal
To make it, get started by blending together two cups of spinach with one banana, one teaspoon of matcha powder and two cups of unsweetened almond milk. Pour the mixture into a pot over medium heat, then add in one cup of dry rolled oats. Cook the lean, green oatmeal until the oats are soft, making sure to stir frequently.
About two minutes before the oats are done cooking, stir in two scoops of vanilla protein powder. We love Vanilla Nutrisystem Shake Mix! Finally, divide the finished oatmeal among two bowls and top each bowl with sliced bananas, fresh raspberries, hemp seeds and walnuts.

There are so many ways to customize this easy breakfast. You could easily swap in kale for the spinach or pineapple for the bananas! Matcha could be exchanged for a different superfood powder, such as spirulina or even beet powder (if you don’t care about keeping the green color!).
The toppings can also be adjusted based on your preferences. Use strawberries or blueberries instead of raspberries, or fresh mango instead of the sliced bananas. Walnuts can be substituted with pecans, cashews or almonds. You can even add other Extras, like coconut flakes, chia seeds or a drizzle of honey. Get creative and make a custom breakfast bowl that you love!
