Chocolate Oatmeal Smoothie


Oatmeal is a great way to start your day. Having a bowl of hot porridge everyday can get really boring. Adding oatmeal to smoothies is a another way to enjoy this highly nutritious grain. You can add cooked oatmeal for a creamy smoothie or raw oatmeal if you like little crunch. If using cooked oatmeal in your morning smoothie, it's best to pre-cook the oatmeal the night before, to allow to cool completely. 

Usually I make oatmeal breakfast smoothie with some fruits like this strawberry banana oatmeal smoothie. So this time I thought to try something different and made this chocolate smoothie with oats, banana, almonds and dates. I added a little drinking chocolate to make it extra delicious. The sweetness from the banana, dates and drinking chocolate was perfect and I didn't have to add any extra sweeteners. Even kids would love this healthy smoothie, so do try and let me know how you like it.
