Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Smoothie Bowl

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 3 hours
  • Total Time: 3 hours 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


  • 1/2 cup (40 g) rolled oats, gluten-free if needed
  • 1 tbsp (13 g) chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp (10 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened almond milk**
  • 1 medium-size (100 g) ripe banana, frozen


  1. The night before, add all the ingredients except for the frozen banana to the bowl of your blender and give it a stir to ensure that everything is well combined. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. This step isn’t absolutely necessary, but allowing the oats and seeds to soak for a few hours will make them easier to blend and give you a smoother, creamier smoothie.
  2. When ready to eat, add the frozen banana and blend on high until oats are fully broken down and a smooth and creamy consistency is reached, adding more milk if the smoothie is too thick. Transfer it to a bowl, garnish with toppings of choice, and enjoy!


* Cook time refers to chilling time. ** You can use any non-dairy milk, or even dairy milk if you don’t need this to be vegan or dairy-free. Also, if your smoothie is too thick, add a few extra splashes of milk to the blender.
