Coffee Smoothies

by Aspen, Herbal Authoress

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
