Chocolate Oatmeal Smoothie - the Perfect Post-Workout Breakfast

Recipe by JessFontenot
READY IN: 5mins
YIELD: 1 smoothie


  • 12
    cup rolled oats, soaked overnight in 1/2 cup filtered water in your refrigerator
  • 1
    cup low-fat milk, however any milk will do
  • 2
    ice cubes, just so it is cold
  • 25
    g chocolate protein powder, make sure it's low sugar, I use Rivalus Promasil in Milk Chocolate
  • 1
    tablespoon cocoa powder, this is optional, I like the extra chocolatiness and boost of flavanoids


  • Fill blender with the soaked oatmeal mixture, ricotta cheese, milk, and ice cubes. Turn on a low blending speed to get it going.
  • When things are looking smooth and blended, open the ingredient hatch on the lid of the blender, (or just the lid if yours doesn't have one - just make sure it's going low enough to where you won't have an explosion), and add your protein powder and cocoa powder while it's still going.
  • Replace cover and turn on high for a few seconds to make sure it's all nice and smooth.
  • Pour into a tall glass with a straw and enjoy!
