Recipe: Chocolate Lovers Almond Oatmeal Smoothie

Serves 1 – easily doubled

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (40 g) rolled Oats
  • 1 Tbsp (7 g) Chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp (16 g) natural Almond Butter, or peanut butter* if that’s all you have
  • 2 Tbsp (10 g) unsweetened Cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened vanilla Almond Milk, or milk of choice, or just water for an extra dark chocolate flavor*
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) Maple Syrup, or a sweet, ripe Pear*
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

Optional Toppings, especially if you take it as a smoothie bowl* – a little more of everything … well, almost, lol:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Oats
  • Chia seeds
  • Almonds, chopped
  • Cocoa

* My comments, not Amanda’s.

Blend all the ingredients then rest in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, and preferably overnight.
