It has been too long since I blogged a smoothie. Thick, satisfying and delicious it feels vaguely sinful having chocolate for breakfast, but this really is very healthy despite tasting like a spiced chocolate oaty biscuit.
You need to be slightly organised here and soak the oats and dates overnight for a creamier smoothie. I think that the addition of a banana or some unsalted cashews would also be delicious.
A simple smoothie perfect for breakfast
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1 cup milk I use soy
- 8 dates
- pinch of cinnamon ginger & all spice (to taste)
- 2 tsp cocoa powder
Mix all ingredients together in a container and leave in the fridge overnight. Blitz with a stick blender in the morning. If you forget to prep the night before just go ahead and make it anyway.
Simple and easy!
