The title of this post says it all. This is a smoothie recipe with cocoa, oatmeal, almonds, and some other key ingredients. It's seriously healthy and the tastiest late night snack. Ever. (Also a tasty breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, second lunch, etc.)
- 3 tbsp raw oatmeal
- 1/4 cup almonds
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup raw milk (or half and half if you feel like splurging)
- 1 tbsp raw cocoa powder
- 2 frozen bananas
- 8 ice cubes
Put all ingredients in your blender. Blend thoroughly. We have a VitaMix and it's incredible - the ice is destroyed in approximately 15 seconds. Pour in a fun glass, insert straw. ENJOY!
We've made this smoothie (or a similar variation - some have had date pieces, some no milk products, some coconut oil!) the past few nights and everyone fights over seconds. Always a good sign.
Let me know if you try this out, or if you have your own favorite smoothie recipe.
