#FlavorfulFriday – Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Smoothie

#FlavorfulFriday - Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Smoothie from Healthy, Fit & Barefoot!

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing with you a smoothie recipe that I’ve been making every morning post-workout because it’s so yummy, filling, and helps my muscles recover after and intense workout. I love smoothie’s because they are quick, simple, and I can change them up with so many different ingredients. Plus, they are really refreshing when it’s warm out. Once it starts getting colder out I will probably go back to making my eggs with avocado and tomato on sprouted toast for breakfast but until then, it’s smoothie time! Plus, who wouldn’t want chocolate for breakfast?!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk (or almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 scoop Everlast Vanilla Vegan Protein
  • 1 TBSP almond butter
  • 1 TBSP non-alkaline cacao powder
  • 1 TBSP flax seeds
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp maca powder (optional: not recommended if your pregnant or nursing)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 3-4 ice cubes

Blend and enjoy this delicious post-workout recovery smoothie! If it’s not sweet enough you could add in a medjool date as well (which would get you some more fiber in this smoothie too).

I have been using Everlast Vanilla Vegan Protein because it’s not loaded with lots of junk and it tastes amazing in my smoothies! I am an Everlast Ambassador and if you are interested in trying the Vegan Protein, they currently have it on sale with FREE SHIPPING and you get a FREE box of their Everlast FUEL (pre-workout supplement). Plus, if you use my code: HEALTHYFITANDBAREFOOT you get an insider’s discount on top of all that! This special has been running for a little while, so it’s not going to last much longer.
