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!
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!
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
