Berries and Cream Oatmeal

Berries and Cream Oatmeal | Vegan Living by Danielle


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Instant or Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein (Arbonne’s Vanilla Protein Shake Mix┬átastes GREAT – see protein comparison chart at the bottom of the page)
  • 1 scoop fiber, optional (Arbonne’s Daily Fiber Boost has no flavor and mixes well)
  • 3-4 strawberries, sliced (substitute your favorite berries!)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, optional (substitute your favorite nuts!)
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds, optional (substitute flax or chia seeds!)


  1. Heat 3/4 cup water for 1 minute in the microwave, or bring to a boil stovetop.
  2. Put 1/2 cup oats in a cereal bowl.
  3. Mix protein and fiber into oats.
  4. Pour heated water into oats mixture and mix well.
  5. Let oatmeal sit for about 2 minutes to absorb the water.
  6. Top oatmeal with berries, nuts, and seeds.

Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl

Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl | Vegan Living by Danielle
Smoothie Bowls are way easier to make than you think!


  • Smoothie:
    • 1 1/2 cup frozen fruit
    • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk (hemp, almond, soy, cashew, flax…)
    • 1 scoop vegan protein (my favorite is Arbonne’s vanilla protein)
    • 1 Tbsp flax seed or chia seeds (I use a chia/flax blend)
    • optional – a very small handful of spinach (Recommended if you have difficulty getting your veggies in. This will change the color of your smoothie bowl, but shouldn’t affect the taste too much. You may also be interested in a powdered greens supplement.)
  • Toppings:
    • 1 banana, sliced
    • 1/3 cup of your favorite berries
    • 1 Tbsp flax seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, or oats


  1. Blend together the frozen fruit, non-dairy milk, protein, seeds, and spinach until smooth.
  2. Pour smoothie in a bowl.
  3. Top with the banana, berries, and seeds or oats.
  4. Enjoy!
