I mentioned earlier in this week’s CSA post that I’ve been using organic rolled oats for my breakfast shakes.
My friend got me on to this recipe a few weeks ago but I’ve since tweaked it a little bit. I’ve added organic hemp protein in chocolate flavor because I use this to get me through early mornings where only have 10 minutes to prepare and eat breakfast then I end up having a late lunch (oh the joys of having a baby!) The favorite part of all this is knowing I have found a healthy way to eat chocolate for breakfast, hooray!
The cinnamon gives it the “Mexican” chocolate taste, but you are not a fan of cinnamon I assure you this will still taste great without it.
I take my rolled oats and blend them beforehand into a flour consistency.
