recipe | chocolate oatmeal almond smoothie

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.)

Ingredients
– 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

Directions
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.

till tomorrow,
Rebecca

    Looks lovely! My favourite recipe i mango smoothie: just a mango, low fat milk and a squeeze of honey if I want something a bit sweeter!

    Yeah, pop in a straw and walk out the door. You could even put it in a sippy cup 😉

    THANKS, Amy! I debated whether or not to go with all this brightness and editing, but I LOVED the way it looked and had to go with it. 😉

    Oh yeah – we LOVE these! Since I pick up eggs from a farm down the street, I usually add an egg or two to the shake. Add a little good fat and protein to the mix.

    Yum! This looks like a wonderfully healthy excuse to eat something undeniably sweet! I would do this with milk or yogurt ice cubes to keep it from getting watered down. Which reminds me, I need to get an ice cube tray! These will be great for keeping cool this summer 🙂
