INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup (40 g) rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp (20 g) shelled hemp seeds
  • 2 Tbsp (10 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 – 1 cup (180 – 240 ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup**
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt (optional but highly recommended)
INSTRUCTIONS

The night before, add all the ingredients to the bowl of your blender and blend on high until a smooth and creamy consistency is reached. Transfer the smoothie to a glass or jar, cover, and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
The next morning, remove your smoothie from the fridge, add desired toppings, and enjoy! If your smoothie is too thick, stir in a few splashes of almond milk to achieve your desired consistency.
