Mocha Monkey Cold Brew Smoothie
Next time you find yourself hitting the snooze button a few too many times, try this frosty breakfast protein bomb to get your day back on track. For an extra shot of fuel (not to mention flavor) I like to swap in almond or cashew butter in place of peanut butter. I may have tried it with Nutella once or twice.
- 1 cup cold brewed coffee
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 Tbsp peanut butter
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder or sweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup almond milk
- 5-8 ice cubes – keep some cold brew cubes on hand for extra jolt of caffeine
Add first 5 ingredients to your blender and blend until combined. Then add ice cubes until the consistency is to your liking. Enjoy, and go out to conquer the world.
About the Chef
True confession: I don’t have a daily coffee habit…For me, coffee – and especially really great coffee – is made to be savored. So I always look for ways to highlight the sweet, roasty notes of coffee in my homebrew and on my table.
