Ingredients needed to make Cocoa Butter Smoothie
- cacoa butter (or cocoa butter)
- coconut oil
- rolled oats
- vanilla Greek yogurt
- water of 1% milk
- cocoa powder
- frozen bananas
- ice cubes
I’m a big fan of Wendy’s Frosty treat, so I like to add ice to my smoothies. When you add ice, you can create an almost ice cream-like thickness, which I lurve. The thickness adds to the indulgence which can be topped off with cinnamon, grated chocolate, or sprinkles. Sweeten with just a touch of honey for added deliciousness! This Cocoa Butter Smoothie is healthy, easy to make, and definitely, one you should pin. Like now. ENJOY!
- 1/4 cup cacao butter/cocoa butter
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup greek Vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup water of 1% milk
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1 small frozen banana
- 12 ice cubes
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon honey
Add all ingredients to your blender except ice, cinnamon, and honey. Add about half the ice that you will be using. Blend on high until combined completely.
Add remaining ice. Blend until just combined so you still have an icy treat.
Garnish with cinnamon and/or sweeten with honey (optional).
