Mocha Oatmeal Smoothie and overripe bananas??? What's their relationship?  Well, people always say overripe bananas best used for making banana bread.  I think it is best used in this smoothie.

Mocha Oatmeal Smoothie saying it is irresistible most likely is an understatement.  Oh yes, it is that goooood....

Prep Time: 5-8 Minutes   Cooking Time: ZERO   Serving: 2-4

I have been thinking of experimenting this recipe for a while.  Little did I expect that I am addicted since the first taste.  Is it the chocolate?  Is it the coffee?  I don’t know.  All I know is that I felt awesome after having this smoothie.  My energy sustains longer.  I don't feel hungry for a long, long time.

Tips

I tried using an overripe banana and a ripe banana separately at different times.  Overripe banana brings in more sweetness in the smoothie.  In my opinion, it definitely tastes better.  But if you are not that picky, a ripe banana is perfectly fine.

You may have more than 1 overripe banana on hand and can't use them all right away.  What could you do?  Discard the banana peels, store one banana in one zip lock bag and freeze.  Except you plan to use all frozen bananas in one shot, putting them into separate bags would make your job much easier later.

As much as it is so irresistible, best served after chilling the smoothie overnight.  I bring to work for several occasions for my mid-morning snack.  Storing the smoothie in a thermos to keep its cold temperature would be the best.
