Spinach Banana Cacao Protein Shake With a Caffeine Kick a.k.a. Basically, A Banana Coffee Milkshake (With Some Greens – DUH!)
OKAY guys, are you surprised?
Another day, another smoothie.
This one’s kinda fun & different than the most recent ones though, because it contains… WAIT FOR IT… COFFEE!!!!!
This smoothie is a great post-workout refuel because it’s loaded with protein, vitamin K, potassium, antioxidants, a dose of caffeine, collagen, superfood greens (chlorella) & tons of vitamin A & healthy fats!
Since it contains coffee (& what’s better than coffee & chocolate, really?) it pairs well with some chocolate flavoured granola as a topping. I used One Degree Organics cacao quinoa sprouted oat granola!
