CREAMY CHOCOLATE

MOCHA SHAKE

This shake is as creamy as it is delicious. A staple in our house when I need to get out the door but don’t have time to have breakfast and have a coffee. This combines both! The protein from the Greek yogurt and the nuts gives this shake staying power. The healthy fats will also keep you satisfied longer.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soy milk

  • 2 shots espresso, cooled

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 tbsp cocoa

  • 1/2 cup 2% plain greek yogurt ( or ½ pack of soft tofu)

  • 1 frozen banana

  • 1 tbsp. nut butter 

  • 1 medjool date (or 2 regular dates, they are a bit smaller)

 

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth for about 30-45 seconds. Add more milk if needed for desired consistency.

  2. If you prefer a caffeine-free shake, sub the shots of espresso for an extra ½ cup of milk
