chocolate-almond oatmeal smoothie
This post is going to be short and sweet (heavy on the sweet!) We have a busy weekend ahead and I didn’t want to leave you all in the dust just because things are getting crazy over here.
After a very dry January the snow gods have arrived and we are finally getting dumped with snow!
Thank god for happy dogs, a new greenhouse, and healthy and delicious breakfast smoothies to fuel us through the day!
If you are a fan of thick and creamy chocolate milkshakes this is the smoothie for you. Did I mention there is spinach involved? Shhhh. It doesn’t matter. This smoothie is so gosh darn tasty you wont believe how healthy it is! The addition of rolled oats makes this a “stick to your bones” kind of breakfast. Move over bacon and eggs…. Grab a straw!
