Happy Monday guys! How was everyone’s weekend?
I’m a little tuckered out from my busy weekend, so today calls for one of my favorite Monday morning perk me ups! (see what I did there?) High on my list of favorite combinations is chocolate and coconut, second only to chocolate peanut butter. So this Chocolate Coconut Espresso Smoothie puts a smile on my face and a skip in my step. And today, I’m in desperate need of that little extra skip!
A flavorful combination of banana, cacao powder, espresso powder, cooled freshly brewed coffee, coconut milk, a pinch of cinnamon and some honey for sweetness makes for one delicious breakfast smoothie, post workout smoothie or afternoon pick me up.
