CHOCOLATE Cake Batter Smoothie (Vegan)



From Oh She Glows


Ingredients

*makes 1 smoothie*
  1. 1/3 cup of oats
  2. 1 frozen banana
  3. 1 cup of non-dairy milk (I used almond)
  4. 1 tsp of vanilla
  5. 1 tsp of cocoa powder
  6. 1 tsp of agave
  7. 1 tsp of cinnamon
  8. handful of ice cubes
  9. 1 Tbsp of non-dairy chocolate chips
  10. 1 Tbsp of cashew nut butter or whatever nut butter you have on hand

Method

If you aren't a big texture person, soak your oats in the milk for 1 hour before making smoothie. If you don't mind the oat-y texture, you can skip that step. I like texture so I did not soak my oats (I am also impatient when it comes to eating dessert!)

Combine oats (soaked or un-soaked), milk, and remaining ingredients, minus chocolate chips, in a blender and process until smooth. Add chocolate chips to blender and pulse until desired consistency is reached.
Serve immediately and ENJOY!


NOTE: I was thinking 1 tsp of almond extract would maybe give the smoothie a more cake battery taste, especially if you are not using cashew butter. I have not tried this, but plan to in the future. Let me know if you try it and if it worked or not?!?!
