OATMEAL COOKIE SMOOTHIE // BACK TO SCHOOL WITH INGRID NILSEN

OATMEAL COOKIE SMOOTHIE // The Kitchy Kitchen

Dessert for breakfast? No this isn’t your favorite childhood cereal (cinnamon toast crunch for me), it’s an actually wholesome smoothie…that tastes like a cookie.

This is what I’d call a power smoothie.  If you just worked out or need something to keep you full, this is the smoothie for you. Agave nectar is low glycemic, so no sugar rush, flax seeds and chia seeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, so expect heart healthy effects and staving off hunger.

You can add protein, peanut butter, whatever you like to make this smoothie fit into your lifestyle.  Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

For 2 12-ounce smoothies

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tablespoons agave nectar

2 tablespoons flax meal

1/3 cup oats

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon chia seeds

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 frozen banana, peeled and chopped

1 1/2 cups vanilla almond milk

DIRECTIONS

Pop the ingredients in a blender, and go from mix to liquify in steps.  Let it blend on liquify (or the highest setting) for 30 seconds.  The trick to this smoothie is REALLY blending it.  Taste and add more almond/coconut milk if you like a thinner consistency.

    I just tried this and ohhhh my god. Best smoothie I’ve ever tried and I wish I had enough frozen bananas to make five more. My sister loved it and my very picky mother loved it too. Great job!

    Can I use pure maple syrup or or organic honey in place of the Agave? I try to stay away from it. Thank you!! :-)

      Hi Christie, Yes! Totally cool. You can also try stevia. I just recommend adding a little at a time, as each of these ingredients have varying sweetness. xo

    Hi Claire!! I’m a HUGE fan of your blog and new cookbook! I saw your video with Ingrid and I heard you mention replacing the frozen banana with almond milk ice cubes. How many ice cubes should you use? Thanks so much!!

      Hi Juliana, Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy the recipes in the cookbook!

      Good question, re: ice cubes. It depends on how big they are, but I’d try to equal the size of a banana. For my ice cube tray that’s 3 to 4. xoxo

    I just found you through Ingrid (who I found like a week ago), and I think this is great! I will try this, but maybe with a touch of Sweden, since it’s not easy to find Almond milk here.. Could you use vanilla yoghurt perhaps? Or regular milk? What would you recommend?

      Hi Beatrice,

      You can use regular milk, or you can make your own almond milk really easily (there’s a recipe on the blog). xo

    This was soooooo good!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! And my daughter loved it, I have such a hard time getting her to eat a good healthy breakfast. I premixed a week’s worth of the dry ingredients in small plastic bags, to make it super quick and easy – I just dump that in and add the milk, agave, vanilla and banana.

    Hi my name is Claire too!
    I was wondering if you need the chia seeds and flax meal?
    I’m finding it hard to find them in the supermarket.

      Hi Claire, You don’t “need” them, they add a bit of texture and nutritional value. You can replace them with your favorite protein powder, or something like that. xo

      Hi Mike, I don’t, but if you add up whatever ingredients you’re using, that will give you the info you’re looking for. Some of the details can vary depending on what products you’re using. xo

    Hi, I caught this on You Tube and loved the video and I’m so excited to try the recipes. You mentioned you are a cocoa powder snob and I was curious which ones you prefer? I’ve only ever used Hershey’s so I’m interested in branching out a little but have no idea where to start! Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give ;)

      Hi Kelly, I LOVE Valrhona. You can buy it online if you can’t find it locally. The flavor is insane. xo

    Love this smoothie! I have made it a few times since I saw you on Ingrid’s channel. Can’t wait to try the quinoa and kale salad next. Going to go make this smoothie again right now!

    This looks delicious! Is there anything you can substitute for the frozen banana? And if not does the smoothie taste like banana at all? I’m not a fan of the banana flavor haha

    Thank you!
