A healthy spin on an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, this smoothie is packed with protein and full of rich, chocolate flavor.
I’m not sure where the time went by my littlest one just turned six months old. How the HECK did that happen so quickly?! Everyone jokes that he is always smiling. Admittedly, he is a super chill, friendly, and smiley baby.
He is the token laid-back second kid that tricks you into wanting a third. While he is usually in good spirits, he is also cutting teeth and it has been a royal pain in his mouth. As a result, he isn’t sleeping very well and we are back to 2-3 feedings a night.
Mama is exhausted and apparently I’m also starving because this Salted Chocolate Oatmeal Smoothie is exactly what I was craving during a recent 4am nursing session. The very next morning I woke up and made this smoothie to satisfy my craving. Man, did it hit the spot!
Rich cocoa flavor is sweetened naturally with a ripe banana and blended with creamy yogurt and oats to create a guilt-free smoothie that tastes more like a cookie than breakfast. If you love salt and chocolate as much as I do, be sure to check out my Lemon Shortbread with Salted Chocolate Drizzle and Chocolate Dipped Oranges with Sea Salt.
Your straw is waiting.

Trying this smoothie for lunch today. It’s quite good. I used hemp powder instead of protein powder, and it’s still pretty tasty. nice recipe.
So glad you enjoyed it Sarah!
Is this entire smoothie 240 calories, i.e. how it is written? Is 16 oz. a serving? Is it 8 oz? Confuse with servings vs. calories
16 ounces is a serving which is 240 calories. The whole blender makes 32 ounces. :)
What can be used instead of the banana? Thanks in advance!
You could just skip it or add more yogurt or even try an avocado!
Hi! Any substitute for the banana? I just don’t eat them… Thanks in advance! :)
How about avocado?
Love! Perfect for a guilt-free dessert craving.
Do you need to cook the oatmeal first?
No I just add the raw oats! So good!!
Sounds amazing! I was wondering if there was a substitute for the protein powder as i have none at the moment and I have my eye on this for breakfast tomorrow! :)
How about a scoop of peanut butter or almond butter?? Enjoy!
How does he keep getting cuter and cuter and CUTER?!
And now I want something salted chocolatey for breakfast! Great smoothie.
Awww thank you so much!!! He lights up my life!!
Sleep regressions are the worst!!! Hang in there, Mama. In the meantime, fueling up on this smoothie doesn’t look half bad ;)
THE WORST! He has gotten better this week…finally. How are you doing??
