Whenever I feel blah and I need a boost of energy (and have my blender nearby), I make this Mocha Smoothie because there isn't any other recipe that I can stomach (of the homemade kind, because from Yogen Fruz, Starbucks or Tim Hortons, everything tastes better).
Makes 2 large smoothies:
2 cups of milk (you can replace with almond, rice or soy milk)
2 scoops of chocolate flavoured protein powder (I use North Coast Naturals)
2 tbsp of instant coffee (decaf or regular)
1-2 tbsp of powdered sugar (or honey)
Plenty of ice
You can also add a banana and/or peanut/almond butter for the extra oomph.
Crush, blend, smooth. Pour, drink, enjoy!
