Mocha Almond Smoothie

It is going to be a hot one this week. 90 degree weather and little to no rain in sight. My rain barrel is as dry as a bone and the grass is quite crispy. I love Florida summers except for the following three things…

1. Sweating like a pig while getting children in and out of a car.

2. Hearing those children say, “It’s hot in here!” upon entering the car. (This is when, as a mom, I find the need to bite my tongue so I don’t say, “No duh!”)

3. Not enjoying my afternoon cup of coffee as much because it causes me to sweat profusely.

While there is no solution to #1, and #2 has been handled with a threat, I have found the ultimate solution to problem #3 and that is my Mocha Almond Smoothie. Here is my recipe…

1/2 – 3/4 cup Almond milk (depending on desired thickness)

1/4 cup Plain Greek yogurt

1 scoop Hemp protein powder (I use Nutiva)

2 Tablespoons Almond butter

1 Frozen banana

2 Teaspoons Organic Cacao Powder

1 Packet Starbucks Via coffee

Place all ingredients into blender and mix until smooth and frothy.
