Nutritious Nutella Frappe

Around here, we call eggs, "Gockies."  Apparently, it's a term stemming from the Rugged Mountain Man's Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. 

And, we've got loads of Gockies on this here micro farm.  So many that Blossom4 runs the opposite directions and screams in agony, "Noooooo, please no gockies, PLEASE, NOOOOOOOO" when I announce that there will be Gockies for breakfast. 


In an effort to make the eggs more palatable, I like to serve a little something fun with them.  The Blossoms were totally in love with this spur-of-the-moment creation of mine!

Nutritious Nutella Frappe
2 cups Whole Milk
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
Generous dollop of Nutella (or generic Chocolate Hazelnut spread)
Splash of Vanilla
10+ ice cubes

Pour milk, oats, dollop of Nutella and vanilla in the blender.  Whir til smooth.  (Better to over-blend than under-blend.  Oats mix in well when blended plenty long.)  Throw in the ice cubes and blend again. Serve immediately.  Serves 2-3 


Voila!  Uber tasty, filling AND nutritious!
