Coffee Smoothies

I wouldn’t say I am a coffee addict - lazy weekend mornings I often can’t find the motivation to make my cup o’ joe - but it is definitely one of life’s pleasures. So imagine the stars in my eyes when I realized there was such a thing as Coffee Smoothies! Especially since I am on a strict no sugar, no dairy diet, I was thrilled to find these recipes that create a sense of decadence without the unhealthy ingredients that usually go along with your favorite indulgence. They even have healthy fats to boost your metabolism! Here are just a few I have tried:

 

Coconut Cashew Coffee Smoothie:

¾ cup brewed coffee

¼ cup coconut milk

¼ cup cashews

2 tbsp shredded coconut

1 small frozen banana

Sea salt

1 tbsp chia or hemp seeds

Espresso Peanut Butter:

1/4 cup peanut butter

½ cup coffee

¼ cup almond or coconut milk

1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa

Caramel Mocha:

½ cup coffee

½ cup almond or coconut milk

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 banana

3 dates (pitted and warmed in hot water for 15 minutes)

1 cup ice
