Peppermint mocha smoothie, anyone? We’re huge peppermint and mocha fans over here so I thought this smoothie flavor combination would be a hit…and it was! It super easy to make and full of delicious flavor. It’s the perfect Christmas morning breakfast in my opinion! Read on for the recipe.
1 cup milk of choice
1/3 cup canned full fat coconut milk
1.5 frozen bananas
2 pitted dates
2 TBS cocoa powder
1 scoop unflavored protein powder (optional — I used pea protein)
2 tsp instant coffee/handful of coffee beans
Tiny drop of peppermint extract
Add everything to a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass and top with coconut whipped cream and crushed candy cane.
Try unsweetened, plain yogurt in the place of canned coconut milk.
Use chocolate protein powder instead of unflavored protein powder and omit the dates.
Use more instant coffee/beans for a stronger mocha taste!
Use only 1/2 – 3/4 cup milk if omitting the protein powder.
