Monday Munchies: Banana Mocha Smoothie

I found this one on Girl Gone Gourmet after a Google search for healthy snacks. I’m not a fan of coffee, so I was a bit nervous about trying it, but it’s really good! I halve the recipe, because the original is practically a meal.

Banana Mocha Smoothie

What You Need

  • ¼ cup cold brew coffee (You can make your own, but I buy a small bottle of plain cold brew coffee. It lasts for quite a while in the fridge.)
  • 1 banana, sliced and frozen
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened baking cocoa

How to Make It

  1. Prep your banana the night before. Slice it thin and put it in a container in the freezer. If you want to make it easier on yourself the next day, layer the slices on parchment paper or a small silicone baking sheet in the container.
  2. Break apart the banana slices (if necessary) into chunks small enough for your blender to handle. Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth.

Deviation: Add a serving of flavorless protein powder and this can really be a meal replacement shake.
