Need an idea for those spotty bananas? Break them up, freeze them, and make this delicious breakfast smoothie. It’s a perfect way to get fiber, antioxidants, protein, and caffeine in a whirl. 

Before Banana Mocha Smoothie

I never seem to have time for breakfast, but I manage to make room to whip up this smoothie and pour it into a travel cup for my commute. And I feel naughty indulging in something so tasty that early in the morning. 
The recipe below is how I normally make this smoothie. If you don’t have dates and vanilla on hand, just omit them. 

Banana Mocha Smoothie

(makes 1 super serving)

1 banana, peeled and frozen

1/2 cup coffee (hot or cold)

1 cup almond milk

1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tablespoon chia seeds

Sweetener to taste (I use stevia or 1/2 tablespoon agave nectar)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

1 Medjool date (optional) (soak overnight for easier blending)


Blend everything till smooth. Add a handful of ice cubes for extra frostiness and/or if you used hot coffee.
