Handful of ice

½ cup strong brewed coffee 120 mL, chilled

1/4 cup or 25 g rolled oats

1 spoon nut butter (optional)

Protein powder (optional)

What To Do:

Brew coffee.

Add in frozen banana (for natural sweetness and thick frostiness), oats, milk, and nut butter into a blender.

Add more milk as necessary to reach a consistency to your liking.

Top with a sprinkle of chocolate, and serve immediately.
