Total time: 3 hours 5 mins
Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
Yields: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • ½ cup rolled oats**
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. natural almond butter***
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk****
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. The night before, add all ingredients to the bowl of your blender and give it a stir to ensure that everything is well combined. Cover and place in fridge for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  2. The next morning, blend until a smooth and creamy consistency is reached, adding more milk if smoothie is too thick. Transfer back to a bowl or glass, add desired toppings, and enjoy!
Notes
* Cook time refers to chilling time.
** Be sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you need this to be gluten-free. You can also reduce the oats to ⅓ cup and add a scoop of your favourite protein powder.
*** I used almond because it has a sweet and mild taste. Feel free to use your favourite nut/seed butter, but the flavour might shine through a little.
**** If smoothie is too thick, add a few extra splashes of milk to the blender.
