Coffee Smoothie

I love smoothies, and I love coffee. A problem for me is I like good coffee, with flavors and creaminess, which typically means high in sugar, fat, and calories. Not the ideal way to start your morning. A coffee smoothie is full of flavor, fiber, and low in added sugars, plus can be made to support nutrition goals. You can add in a clean protein powder. Flax, chia, and hemp seeds provide healthy fats. Add cocoa powder to make it a morning mocha. Once you have the basic recipe down, this smoothie may just become your go-to.
