Mocha Breakfast Shake

standard January 21, 2015 Leave a response

This is very quickly turning into smoothie month. I spent my Amazon Christmas money on a copy of 365 Vegan Smoothies after seeing daily Instagram picks of Kathy’s amazing creations for most of last year. And now I cannot get off my smoothie kick. You want this book. And you want this smoothie.

This breakfast shake is a thick, creamy milkshake that is healthy enough for a daily indulgence. Full of healthy fats and protein, it will curb your chocolate craving for the day and get you going on the right foot.

Back to work. Back to routine. Back to healthy diets. This week definitely needed a pick me up after all the back to normal all at once. January starts up full speed and doesn’t look like its going to ease up one bit.

This smoothie is the perfect pick me up drink. Bright and cold to wake you up first thing in the morning. Full of superfood nutrients¬†to keep you awake during the 3 o’clock slump. I know I’m going to need an IV drip of this bright green goodness to get me through the rest of the week.
