Frozen Hot Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie

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


  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/3 cup (30 g) rolled oats**
  • 2 Tbsp (10 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp (7 g) chia seeds
  • 1/21 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup, to taste***
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 medium-size ripe banana, frozen (100 g)
  • 23 ice cubes (optional)


  1. The night before, add all the ingredients except for the frozen banana and ice 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.
  2. When ready to eat, add the frozen banana and ice, and blend on high until the oats have fully broken down and a smooth and creamy consistency is reached. If the smoothie is too thick for your liking, add an extra splash of milk. Transfer to a bowl or glass, add desired toppings, and enjoy!


* Cook time refers to chilling time. ** Be sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you need this to be gluten-free. You can also replace the oats with a scoop of your favourite protein powder to make this grain-free and higher in protein. *** You can sub this with whichever liquid sweetener you have on hand OR use a tablespoon of Hershey’s chocolate syrup for even more chocolate flavour.
