Chocolate Oatmeal Smoothie - the Perfect Post-Workout Breakfast

This is my most favorite post-workout breakfast smoothie. Who knew oatmeal could taste so amazing in a smooth, creamy, protein & fiber-packed smoothie? The ingredients in this recipe are ideal for post workout nutrients to feed and help recover lean muscle. Ricotta cheese is pure whey protein, so if you don't have protein mix, skipping it is fine - you'll still get the benefits of whey protein (fast absorption). This shake holds me over until lunch, and gives me great energy. Not to mention, it's like dessert! **Don't forget to soak your oatmeal overnight.** Soaking is more ideal nutritionally than cooking the oatmeal first, which some oatmeal smoothie recipes instruct. Also, I've made the same smoothie and added banana and a tablespoon of natural peanut butter. Also very good! Enjoy!
