Chocolate Overnight Oatmeal Smoothie

It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed a smoothie recipe, and that changes today. I have plenty of delicious sounding recipe saved to my Drinks board, but this one seemed to fit in. Why? Well, like the Fried Chicken Livers I just made, this recipe looks indulgent but it’s really healthy. It also gets a bonus for having chia seeds–I’ve been looking for a reason to try them but have never gotten around to it. This smoothie is packed full of goodness and promises to taste good. Let’s find out if it does!

Chocolate lovers rejoice! Take overnight oats to a whole new level of deliciousness with this thick and creamy Chocolate Overnight Oatmeal Smoothie. Silky and smooth, it’s got that stick-to-your-ribs feeling of a bowl of oats that’ll keep you satisfied for hours.

The Ingredients

Most of the ingredients for this oatmeal smoothie were just hanging out in my pantry. I had the all-important oats plus the cocoa, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.

That left me to buy the almond milk and chia seeds, but both were readily available at my favorite grocery store. The organic chia seeds I bought were $10.99 for 15 ounces. This is one time that I regret not ordering them, though, since I found much better deals on Amazon.

The Process

Making my oatmeal smoothie was so easy! I’m a fruit smoothie kind of person, but this smoothie had no peeling or chopping involved. Instead, all I had to do was add all of the ingredients to a blender and let everything sit overnight. The next day I blended it all and enjoyed my smoothie. Here’s how my time was spent:

  • 3 minutes to prep the smoothie
  • 2 minutes to blend
  • 5 minutes total (plus sitting overnight in the refrigerator)

I chose to use my mini-prep instead of my full-size blender. It was just big enough to hold a single serving and easier to fit into an already full refrigerator.

So how was it?

While this Chocolate Overnight Oatmeal Smoothie recipe was filling and very chocolatey, it wasn't sweet enough for me. I'm a dark chocolate person, so I was surprised to find this smoothie a tad too bitter for my liking. However, I did love the fact that it was packed full of healthy goodness and that it was so easy to make. I'm definitely going to give it another try either with more maple syrup or sweetened almond milk.
