DO YOU NEED MORE ENERGY? 🔆
WOULD YOU LIKE TO INCREASE YOUR METABOLISM? ⬆️
HOW ABOUT MORE PROTEIN & FIBER? 😊
THEN POUR YOURSELF THIS NEW COFFEE SMOOTHIE! ☕️
This is one of the MOST delicious, energizing, fulfilling smoothie bowls EVER! I absolutely love the flavor of the coffee mixed with the creaminess of the almond milk and the muscle building element of the protein powder. I enjoy working out early in the morning, and now that it is getting hot outside, this smoothie bowl is the perfect answer to get my protein intake after my workout + coffee fix! I think YOU will love it too 💗 ! And this would also be a perfect afternoon snack for that slump that we seem to get sometimes 😴 💤 . . . I know I do, especially in the summer! ⛱
ENERGY BOOST SMOOTHIE
INGREDIENTS: for smoothie bowl
1/2 c. unsweetened Silk almond milk
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c. yogurt (Siggi’s is my favorite)
1 c. coffee ice cubes (approximately 3 to 4 cubes)
1 scoop whey protein powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 frozen banana
INGREDIENTS: for toppings
2 T. chopped almonds
2 T. cacao organic nibs
1/2 banana, sliced
DIRECTIONS: First thing, make coffee ice cubes! ⬜️ If you are like me and haven’t had ice cube trays in your home for a long time, you’ll need to get some. Brew the coffee, let it cool down, then pour into the trays and place in the freezer until frozen. Blend all smoothie ingredients (as I have stated in previous blogs, I love my Magic Bullet for this) until well blended. You can add more milk or less milk depending on the thickness you prefer.
Toppings: Now is when the fun and the yum begins! 😋 If you have never tried cocoa nibs, get ready, they are so delicious and add great cocoa flavor & crunch without sugar! These are my new favorite food accessory! 👍
Servings: 1 or 2 depending on if this is a snack or a meal replacement
Prep Time: 2 hours if you need to freeze the coffee and make coffee cubes, if not, then about 5 minutes.
Just look 👀 at these yummies on the top of the smoothie bowl , I bet YOU can hardly wait to make one too!☕️
Pre-workout, Post-workout, Afternoon slump, anytime is a good time!👍
