Short on time in the morning? Breakfast often being pushed to the back burner? I get it- that’s how many of my morning are too. Between the kids ready, making lunches, and searching for missing homework sheets I sometimes find myself rushing out the door just to realize that I didn’t eat anything. Thankfully one thing I can handle to make in the morning that takes almost no time to put together is a smoothie. I have lots of recipes I use for when I don’t have time to make anything else, and this protein-packed chocolate mocha smoothie is one of my favorites!
Some mornings I will just have time for a cup of coffee, but thankfully this chocolate mocha smoothie has coffee built right into it. By combining coffee, chocolate, banana and protein all packed into one drink- you will be left feeling full of energy and ready to rock your day. Best of all, it tastes amazing!
- ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 banana
- ¼ cup double strength coffee, cooled
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 oz. plain greek yogurt (I used siggis yogurt)
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- ½ cup ice cubes
- Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
Couldn’t be easier, right? A little caffeine boost and protein in together in one drink? Yes please! When I think of coffee, my next thought goes to what pairs perfectly with it- a delicious donut. My kids (and husband’s) very favorite donuts are the rich chocolate frosted donuts from Entenmann’s. They are absolutely delicious. These cake donuts are coated in a rich chocolate glaze that really pairs well with some coffee- don’t you think??
