Skinny Banana-Mocha Smoothie

Skinny Banana-MOcha Smoothie

After waking up a little on the more-than-usual tired side from this past weekend, I needed a healthy way to kick start and rev up my morning.  I am normally a tea drinker, but this morning I needed something stronger, so I grabbed some of my husbands left over morning brewed coffee and put it to the test!  This may be my new favorite chocolate craving cure….a girl needs her chocolate!

Skinny Banana-Mocha Smoothie

Ingredients:
1 large banana cut into chunks
1/2 cup cooked cold coffee (leftover from your morning brew is fine!)
1/2 cup any type of milk (soy milk, rice milk, almond milk…I used almond milk)
1 Tbsp cacao powder (raw chocolate powder packed with antioxidants, magnesium, and iron)
1 Tbsp almond butter
Don’t forget a handful of ice to make it nice and cold!

Directions:
1. Blend it all up! Place the ice, banana, coffee, milk, cacao powder, and almond butter in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Drink ME
