*Thank you Jif and Dannon for sponsoring today’s post so that I can share this coffee mocha smoothie recipe with you. As always, all opinions are mine.*
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 with the perfect caffeine kick was INVENTED!
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 blender and you will end up with a RICH and creamy smoothie that will fill you up for a couple of hours.
Even Hubby APPROVED of this 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 beverage to make it all worth it.
I 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!
Here are some other mocha smoothie FLAVOR VARIATIONS you can try:
- For banana mocha smoothie, add 1 banana in this recipe.
- For almond mocha smoothie recipe, use almond milk.
- For peanut butter mocha smoothie, add a 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter.
- For mocha protein smoothie, add a 1-2 tablespoons of your vanilla or chocolate protein powder.
