Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 (12-ounce) shake



  • 1 cup almond, soy, or coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon Florida honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Skybird’s Smokey Chipotle Sauce
  • *or, substitute ground chili powder
  • Sprinkle of ground nutmeg and cloves
  • 1 small banana, cut into pieces and frozen overnight in a freezer bag


Combine milk, cocoa powder, old-fashioned oats, honey, ground cinnamon, Skybird’s Smokey Chipotle Sauce, vanilla extract, and ground nutmeg and cloves in a re-sealable container. Stir together and refrigerate overnight. **If you did not start the night before (or don’t mind little bits of oatmeal in your shake), you can make this without that step–put the oats in the food processor or blender first, process until it becomes a fine powder, and then add the rest of the ingredients.

Add banana and oat mixture to food processor or blender and process until smooth and well-combined. If shake is too thick, add more milk for a thinner consistency.
