This week I’ve been trying out three flavours from Riise breakfast: apple pii, blueberrii and nordic berrii as my morning breakfast before I leave for work. Riise breakfast is the UK’s 1st plant-based breakfast company so I was excited when they got in touch and I had the chance to taste some of their products.
I’ve just started a new job and as I’m getting into a completely new routine, I don’t always have the time to make a big breakfast which means I’m always hungry in work. At the moment I would rather spend more time sleeping than making sure I have enough time to have a big breakfast so a quick easy substitute works great for me. Though I know this isn’t always ideal, I found that these bottles were a great way to make sure I get enough sleep but also feel full.
So, on day 1 I tried Nordic berrii, I had a feeling that apple pii would be favourite so I saved that one until last. The texture of the breakfast solutions is quick thick in comparison to previous smoothie style things I have tried in the past. The solution has a few chunks in it too but as soon as I realised this it’s really easy to drink. I never drink drinks with bits in so this was a little change for me but one that I didn’t mind.
What I really like is the packaging of the bottles. On the back, it has a little infographic that tells you that 1 bottle of Riise breakfast is equivalent to a bowl of porridge, almonds and fruit. Which I was a bit shocked about as the bottles are cute and small so you wouldn’t think that it would fill you up. Completely wrong though as each day I drank this before my shift began, I was left feeling a lot more full and not reaching for any snacks before my lunch hour.
The shakes are vegan and contain no added sugar so sometimes the taste isn’t so sweet. I found that as the solutions contain rice and pea protein, the taste isn’t quite sweet but isn’t savoury either. Bit of a weird one but I kinda liked it! Riise make healthy and convenient breakfasts so if you’re a busy gal like me they will be perfect for fitting into your busy schedule!
