This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and ProYo, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #ProYoHighProteinIceCream http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV.
Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal a la Mode with fresh strawberries, blackberries and blueberries baked into a delicious oatmeal topped with almonds and a scoop of ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Cream. Wait! Ice cream for breakfast? Yes, I did and I am guilt free. ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Creams has 10 grams of protein per serving, low fat, high fiber and no artificial ingredients. Bring on the ice cream for breakfast!
This Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal a la Mode recipe comes from inspiration by my grandmother. Growing up, I would stay at my grandparents house frequently. I loved spending time with them. My grandma would help me bake homemade blackberries pies and my grandpa would try and talk me into changing the oil on his car. I preferred being in the kitchen. When I was able to spend the night, I would wake up to oatmeal a la mode. My grandpa would always tease that he loved when I spent the night because he got to eat ice cream for breakfast. My grandma would just make some old fashioned oats on the stove top with a sprinkle of brown sugar and scoop of vanilla ice cream. So delicious!
ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Cream has made it possible to bring back my nostalgic childhood memory in a more sensible way! While this Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal a la Mode could pass for dessert, it offers 22 grams of protein per serving and is a well balanced breakfast option to start your day.
I have to admit something here. ProYo offers 7 flavors in their ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Creams and I bought one of each from Kroger. I can honestly say I tried them all. You can call me a big fan of ice cream. Vanilla Bean is probably my favorite and the flavor I used for my Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal a la Mode. The Vanilla Bean flavor had the perfect amount of vanilla and was amazingly creamy.
The Dark Chocolate Toffee ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Cream was another favorite for an after dinner snack. Has fantastic flavor and definitely took care of my chocolate craving. If you like dark chocolate, you must try it.
Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal a la Mode is really simple to put together. You can whip it up on the weekends for brunch or even during the week before school and work. Throw it in the oven before you get in the shower and serve a hot oatmeal for your family before everyone heads out the door. I especially love this recipe for big days like when the kids have state testing. I know they have a well balanced and filling meal in their bellies and they can really concentrate on what is in front of them.
You can certainly swap the fruits for whichever fruits your family enjoys. We love blueberries, strawberries and juicy blackberries. You can use just blueberries or swap with some fresh raspberries. Raspberries would be really delicious. Notice in the directions that the vanilla extract and lemon juice are optional. These are ingredients I use if they are on hand, which in my house are both regular pantry items but the dish will still turn out great without. Also, be aware of the high fat content in almonds. You really just need a few almond slices sprinkled over the top for an extra crunch and a little more protein.
