Simple Mocha Smoothie


Jan 29

This recipe is simple, you’ll have it whipped up in seconds. Of course, you do have to make the coffee the day previous and store it in the fridge.


16 oz Previously Brewed Coffee (chilled overnight)
4 Scoops Vital Proteins Dark Chocolate Collagen Whey Protein
2 rounded Tablespoons Powdered Erythritol
2 scoops Better Stevia


Toss everything in a blender with ice, and in few seconds you’ve got a healthy and tasty, morning pick-me-up.

Serves two.

A Few Notes on this Smoothie

The links are to our affiliate programs, which many of you know we ourselves use. In fact, in front of me is the first smoothie made from this recipe using everything we’ve linked to above. Just click the link above or here: Dark Chocolate & Coconut Water Collagen Whey Protein for Vital Proteins’ product. They really have the best stuff. And when you go to Swanson, you’ll have to search for the Better Stevia (Simply the Best has this stevia, but they bundle it with their complete chocolate packs).

The amount of erythritol and stevia can be modified, less if you want it less sweet and more if you want it more sweet, but remember, erythritol and stevia together counter each other’s aftertaste.
