Banana Mocha Breakfast Smoothie
I thought I would share this recipe to get you started this week! I mentioned last week that I found several great smoothie recipes on Cooking Light. I was anxious to start trying them because I need some healthy morning drinks to start my day with.
I love that with smoothies they can easily be frozen so that you can drink them throughout the week. I typically use these Ball freezer storage cups to store my smoothies. When I am getting ready in the mornings, I sit one out and it’s typically ready to go by the time I am on my way to my destination or when I get there. I have always used the 8oz Ball Containers; however, I was excited to find a 16oz version at my grocery store this past week. The link shows you them on Amazon; however, at Walmart I can find them for $2-3, much cheaper there.
For the breakfast smoothie recipe, I adapted it a bit from the original based on some of the reviews on it. It did have a strong kick of banana but it was good and filling!
- 1 Cup Fat Free 1/2 & 1/2
- 1 Tbsp Honey
- 1/8 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
- 1 Tsp Cocoa Powder
- 1 Frozen Sliced Ripe Banana
- 1 Cup Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
Place all ingredients in the blender with 1/2 cup-1 cup of ice until fully blended. Regarding the ice, I typically just use the amount I need to get to the desired consistency, adding more if necessary.
This recipe filled 2 16oz containers and 1 8oz container.
