Paging all coffee addicts. Can I have you attention please?
I love all things coffee flavored. This includes, but is not limited to, my morning cup of coffee, coffee yogurt, coffee scented candles, and now, coffee smoothies. One thing to remember with smoothies, regardless of if they contain coffee, is that you can only use them as a meal if they contain a good source of most of the food groups. With that being said, this smoothie recipe contains the grain, fruit, and dairy group. It only contains a small amount of protein, so I would recommend pairing this with a hard boiled egg if you are using it as a breakfast.
This recipe makes 2 servings
