I know, I had to read the title twice too!
A lovely reader named Keri, submitted her favourite way to eat a green monster. It was just so cool and unique I knew I had to try it out.
Dirrty Green Monster Oats
- 1 Green Monster (prepare as usual)
- 1/2-2/3 cup regular oats
- Water (if needed)
- Coconut oil (I tossed some in during cooking)
- Chocolate protein powder
- Sweetener (optional)
- Fun toppings of your choice
Directions: You start by making a green monster the good, old fashioned way in the blender. Next pour the green monster, along with 2/3 cup of regular oats into a pot on the stove and stir. Cook the oats like you normally would and add water if necessary. Once the green mixture is cooked place in a bowl. You can eat them hot or pop it in the fridge for later. Just prior to serving sprinkle some chocolate protein powder over the oats (to create the ‘dirt’).
Keri says, ‘Then, dig in the “dirt”, find the green goo, and consume! Yumm!’
By the way- my batch of green monsters froze beautifully. I can’t even tell that I froze them. I froze them in small Pyrex glass containers. My stash is getting low though so I really hope my appliances come this week!
I tried it out this morning and it was really fun. I haven’t had this much fun eating something in a long time. I felt like a kid in a sandbox. I used Amazing Grass Chocolate Meal Infusion Powder as the dirt. :) I also added in my banana during the cooking process so it would be chunky.
Now most of you probably know by now that I am not a huge oatmeal fan. I don’t know why, but whenever I eat the regular oats I feel sick afterwards. Well, not after this breakfast! It was just delightful. I threw on some cocao nibs for some crunch.
I loved how the chocolate powder got all gooey when it touched the wet oat mixture.
I think this would be a huge hit with kids, wouldn’t it?
It was dirty and FUN! This would be REALLY good cold, right out of the fridge.
