Make Ahead Breakfast Smoothie (Chocolate, PB2 & Oatmeal)

Submitted by: TXBRANDI
Make Ahead Breakfast Smoothie (Chocolate, PB2 & Oatmeal)

Introduction

This is a Smoothie that uses PB2 (can get on Amazon), instead of real peanut butter -it saves some calories & fat & tastes just as good. The best thing about this smoothie is that it lasts in the refrigerator for 2 - 3 days so you can make several in 2 cup mason jars and they will be ready to grab & go for the next few days!

Ingredients

    1/4 Cup Quaker 100% Natural Whole Grain Old Fashioned Oats
    1/2 TBSP (or 1 1/2 tsp) Chia Seeds
    1 Cup Light Silk Chocolate Soy Milk
    1/4 Cup Oikos 0% Fat Vanilla Yogurt
    1 TBSP. Hershey's Cocoa Powder
    1 1/2 TBSP Chocolate PB2

Tips

You can make up a bunch of these in 2 cup containers, but you must let them sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours before you freeze them -this is important in order to let the chia and oats soften and thicken the smoothie. To thaw, move to the refrigerator a day ahead.

note: This is a version of theyummylife's "invent your own flavor" formula that I made up. The idea and information is from that website, but the ingredients for this particular concoction are my own idea.


Directions

Blend oatmeal and chia seeds in a blender until flour consistancy (or keep it a little chunkier if you like). Add chocolate soy milk and use a spoon to get the oats & chia off of the bottom & stir. Add the rest of the ingredients & blend all together. Pour into a 2 cup container (mason jars are perfect) & place in refrigerator overnight or a minimum of 4 hours. The chia seeds and oatmeal will soften and thicken the mixture as it sits. Shake before drinking.
