Recipe by Becky Duffett | Photo by Erin Kunkel
You crushed your morning workout. You have 10 minutes to grab something before running out the door. You really want a smoothie. You desperately need coffee. If only there were a way to put those two things together. This recipe is here for all your caffeine needs. Cold brew concentrate is the secret ingredient, giving you energy without diluting your drink. Plus, you know you need chocolate.
1 banana, preferably frozen, peeled and broken in chunks
½ cup (4 oz/125 g) low-fat Greek yogurt
¼ cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) unsweetened almond milk
¼ cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) cold brew coffee concentrate
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 ice cubes
In a high-speed blender, combine the banana, yogurt, almond milk, cold brew, cocoa, vanilla, and ice cubes. Blend on high speed until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender once or twice.
Pour the smoothie into a tall glass and serve cold.
