Here's a smoothie that tastes like dessert but isn't! Instead of heading to Starbucks for a Frappuccino with all the sugar, make this frozen coffee drink with no added sugar. This drink gets you all the sweetness with naturally good-for-you ingredients like banana and unsweetened cocoa powder.
Recreating a favorite beverage at home is a great way to add in nutrients and skip any unnecessary added sweeteners. If you want to skip the caffeine, give my vanilla smoothie a try, or try any of these best healthy smoothies. Cheers!
Even as an RD, I find myself with less time to spend in the kitchen—meaning quick and easy recipes are my lifesavers. Whether I’m off to my office or to a holiday lunch with friends, I often start my mornings with a yummy, protein-filled smoothie to help tide me over till the next meal.
If you know me, you also know my morning isn't complete without a shot of espresso or a cappuccino. I happen to love the taste of coffee, and of course the caffeine boost is helpful for a productive start to the day.
I also love cooking with coffee (hello, easy coffee cake muffins!) and espresso for mornings when I want my breakfast and my caffeine all in one recipe. This can be a big help with time savings when I'm running out the door for a workout!
For a caffeine boost, you can also add matcha to recipes. Wondering how to use matcha powder?
So I created this frozen mochaccino recipe. Love the taste of frozen espresso? This healthy coffee smoothie with banana happens to be a complete breakfast that provides an excellent amount of satiating protein and fiber to help power you through your morning.
I made this espresso protein shake with no added sugar, sweetening it naturally with unsweetened cocoa powder and fruit. Of course, a grande Mocha Frappuccino with whipped cream from Starbucks contains 61 grams of sugar, and much of that is added sugar!
This espresso smoothie contains about a third of that, 23 grams of sugar, and all of that comes from natural sources such as dairy. It also has a base of Greek yogurt and soy milk. Is soy good for women?
I hope you enjoy this coffee smoothie with banana as much as I do! I'm going to whip one up this morning! Want the best healthy smoothies to blend up for breakfast?
Here's how to make this healthy coffee shake. I hope you enjoy this smoothie with cocoa!
