Say hello to your new morning cup of jo!! This Coffee, Chocolate, Banana, Nut Butter Smoothie will knock your socks off! Let me tell you, adding a little bit of coffee to your smoothie is SO tasty and adds just enough caffeine to help get you moving in the morning.
It will not only give you your morning dose of energy, but it's balanced with lots of nutrients from the cocoa, banana, flax seed, oats, chia seeds, etc. so you'll feel nourished too! It's your coffee and breakfast all in one damn good smoothie ;). My love for smoothies runs deep because they're pretty hard to mess up, so you can pretty much throw whatever you have in a blender and create something magical. Smoothies are the perfect way to ease into Scrounging!
T h e S c r o u n g e
If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home! You may end up creating something even better!
If you don't have cocoa powder, use chocolate protein powder
If you don't have almond butter, use any nut butter you have or powdered peanut butter
If you don't have cauliflower do without or try frozen zucchini
If you don't have chia seeds or flax seed, use hemp seeds or do without
If you don't have yogurt, use coconut flakes
I n g r e d i e n t s
8 oz coffee – chilled coffee is best but you can also use freshly brewed and just add ice
1 tbsp almond butter
1/2 tsp. 100% raw cocoa powder
1/2 fresh or frozen banana
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup frozen cauliflower rice or frozen cauliflower
2 tbsp plain almond or coconut milk yogurt
1-2 tsp flax seed (optional)
1-2 tsp chia seeds (optional)
1-2 dashes of cinnamon
3-4 frozen coconut milk cubes or simply pour in 3-4 tbsp of non dairy milk
1-2 handful of ice – use more if you use freshly brewed coffee
D i r e c t i o n s
Add all ingredients to high powered blender and blend approx. 1 min. If you have a tamper you will likely need to use that in the beginning to get the ingredients flowing.
If you need more liquid add more nut milk or coffee or even yogurt.
