Enjoy your morning coffee with a twist. This unique coffee smoothie combines cacao, bananas, cauliflower and whey protein so that you can stay full and fuel your day!

Coffee and smoothies are two common morning staples in many households. We combined the two and created this Morning Coffee Cacao Power Smoothie so that you can start your day on the right foot. This super nutritious shake is full of healthful ingredients. Coffee will wake you up, while whey protein powder helps to keep you full and on track towards your weight loss goals. Banana and cauliflower contribute fiber and get you one step closer to reaching your daily vegetable serving requirement. Best of all, cacao powder and nibs give you the chocolatey flavor that you love without the added sugars.

To create this super smoothie, simply grab your blender and combine a banana, cacao powder, cauliflower, almond milk, brewed coffee and whey protein powder. Blend until smooth, pour into your favorite glass and garnish with a sprinkle of cacao nibs.

Helpful Hint: To make this treat dairy-free, simply swap out the whey protein with dairy-free alternative like pea or soy protein powder!
