Mocha Breakfast Shake

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.
