As you know, I have an OBSESSION with mocha flavored recipes, as can be seen by these mocha pancakes, mocha truffles and even mocha cookies.

It was only a matter of time before I figured out a way to incorporate this awesome flavor in a breakfast smoothie and so this mocha smoothie was INVENTED!

This mocha smoothie has the perfect caffeine kick to start off your day.

It’s packed with all things that are GOOD for you: Yogurt, milk, oats and then it’s flavored with cocoa powder, espresso powder and peanut powder.

You just dump everything in a Oster® Blend-N-Go® MyBlend® blender and you will end up with a RICH and creamy smoothie that will fill you up for a couple of hours.

This blender is great coz you can just fill, blend & go!

Even Hubby APPROVED of this mocha smoothie, who is generally not a big smoothie fan…lol.

This smoothie was truly a life saver yesterday when anything and everything that can possibly go wrong went wrong => Water pipe bursting, internet issues and a cranky toddler!

Some days are just CHALLENGING and you need a comforting smoothie to make it all worth it 🙂

mocha smoothie 3I used Dannon Oikos (Vanilla) Triple Zero Greek Nonfat Yogurt in this smoothie to give it some thickness.

It has 0 fat, 0 added sugar and 0 artificial sweeteners plus 15g of protein per 5.3 oz (*not a low calorie food!)

I have also finally started using Jif™ peanut powder in my smoothies and I can’t believe I waited this long…

It has 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter and has no added sugar!
