When I need a little morning pick-me-up, I’ve been devouring this Fab4Mocha Smoothie. It’s a delicious mashup of cold brew coffee and chocolate with just a hint of sweetness. The best part? No gluten, preservatives and processed junk.
We got a new puppy about a week ago and she’s been adjusting to her new home by barking and whining in her crate for much of the night. After the second or third sleep-deprived night, I was really tired. I realized my usual decaf espresso in the morning was not going to cut it. So I decided to make a Mocha Smoothie using cold brew, following the #Fab4smoothie formula of protein, fiber, fat and greens.
I always drop a Blender Bomb into my smoothies, but if you don’t have one, don’t fret. Blender Bombs are pre-portioned nuggets you can drop into your blender (along with fruit, greens and liquid) for a nutritional boost. They are plant-based, gluten-free and made with real food ingredients. They’re currently available only via mail order and will keep unrefrigerated for three weeks and longer in the freezer. You can read my full review of Blender Bombs HERE.
I’m breaking my #nobanana rule: If you’ve been following me for a while you may know that I do not like bananas at all. In fact, NONE of my other smoothie recipes contain bananas. But in this particular smoothie, I like to add half of a frozen banana and I pinky promise that you can’t taste it at all.
