Mocha Oatmeal Frappe {Recipe & Better Oats Review}

I was recently given some dark chocolate oatmeal packets to review {yes, chocolate oatmeal - yum}. This instant oatmeal with flax has a yummy twist - dark chocolate! Cocoa flavor and actual pieces of chocolate help make breakfast fun!

I tried the oatmeal using the microwave method {you can also use stove top}. After you pour the oat mixture into your bowl, you can actually use the empty packet to get your water! Just fill it to the measuring line and pour into your bowl. No leaks! Not only does this make it easy for kids to use, but also comes in handy in the workplace.

The oats were good - rolled oats with a chewy texture - and of course the chocolate flavor was great! I do think stove top would be even better and you could use milk instead of water.

About Lavish Better Oats:
Lavish is a great way to start the day with an indulgent—yet nutritious—breakfast. Made with real chocolate morsels and 100% whole grain oats, Lavish is also a good source of ALA Omega-3 and is naturally cholesterol free with 0g of trans fat. It's a win-win breakfast for any chocolate lover who's also health conscious!  And at a price of about $1.69 a box it’s easy on the pocketbook, too. Our fans on Facebook also tell us they like to put a spoonful of peanut butter in their Lavish as an afternoon or late-night snack!
I thought it would be fun to try Lavish Dark Chocolate oats in a recipe. If you're in a hurry in the morning, what better way to get your oatmeal and coffee than having it all together in a frappe? Blend it up and out the door you go! It's also great as an afternoon pick-me-up.

Mocha Oatmeal Frappe

1 packet Lavish Dark Chocolate oatmeal
1 cup milk
1 packet Starbucks Via instant coffee {or 1 heaping teaspoon other instant coffee}
10-12 ice cubes
Protein powder, if desired

Combine ingredients and blend thoroughly until frothy. I used my Magic Bullet, but you can use any blender. Pour into a glass; add a straw and enjoy!

Yum - coffee and chocolate with oats for fiber and flax already included! Drink up! :)

Have you tried any Better Oats varieties like the organic or RAW? What's your favorite add-in for oatmeal?

Disclosure: I received some free packets of Better Oats Lavish Dark Chocolate oatmeal to review. As always, my opinions are my own!

Have a blessed day friends!


  1. Back in the day I'd add chocolate chips to my oatmeal but since becoming a "good" girl I've stopped. But these look really good. Especially it being dark chocolate.
    Big it's 41 degrees here right now so I'll take mine as a latte' instead of a frappe' size hugs to you!!!
    Love you!
