Recipe by Phil Benusa
Almost everyone has added a sliced banana to their morning cereal and enjoyed a glass of chocolate milk on the side. But have you ever added all these ingredients together? This smoothie combines several breakfast staples and turns them into one quick and easy smoothie. Chocolate for a kick of energy, bananas for potassium, oats for healthy complex carbohydrates and spirulina to add vitamins and minerals - this smoothie is an entire meal in the glass.
- 1⁄4 cup quick oats
- 4 tablespoons fresh spirulina, paste
- 1⁄4 cup finely chopped dark chocolate
- 1 large banana, sliced
- 1 cup milk
Directions See How It's Made
- In a bowl cook the quick oats according to directions and set aside. Cook the oats according the instructions to prevent undercooked oats and excess water.
- Make sure to finely chop the chocolate to ensure it blends with the the smoothie. Once chopped finely add the banana and spirulina to the blender and blend until smooth. Finally add the milk and oats and blend everything until smooth. If the consistency is too thick continue to add milk until it becomes the preferred texture.
