Servings 1


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 large scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao or cocoa power
  • 1/4 cup black coffee
  • 1/2 cup low fat milk
  • 1/4 cup low fat thick yoghurt
  • optional- sweetener of brown sugar honey or stevia depending on protein powder and extra milk or water to adjust consistency


  1. In a small bowl add the oats, protein powder and cacao/cocoa and mix to combine.
  2. Add the coffee, milk and yoghurt to the oats and mix well to combine.
  3. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple of hours.
  4. Depending on the protein powder's sweetness, you may like to add some sweetness (I never need to)
  5. Check consistency (I like them thick) and add water/milk to thin if desired.
