*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.* 

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 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.

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!
