I’m a big fan of my blender, especially in the summer. I love throwing a bunch of stuff in and blending it together to make a cool hot-weather treat. There’s no heat from the oven and very little prep because the blender does all of the heavy labor. A press of the button and you’re done!
I confess that this blender recipe didn’t start as a smoothie. I was working on an idea I had for a low-carb, dairy-free popsicle. The problem is, that I made it when I was hungry. Before I poured it into the mold, I poured a bit into a glass, just to taste it. I loved it. It was rich, and creamy, and chocolatey, with just a hint of coffee flavor. I couldn’t stop at a little. Nope, I ended up “tasting” half the recipe.
I did manage to sacrifice a bit of the recipe to make a few popsicles, and they were good. For some reason, however, the recipe just wasn’t quite as good as popsicles, so it became a smoothie recipe. In fact, it became one of my favorite smoothie recipes and is a go-to recipe when I need a quick, nutritious breakfast that will satisfy me for hours.
This Low-Carb 5 Minute Mocha Smoothie makes a quick, satisfying, and tasty breakfast. Pour it into a spill-proof container, and you’ll have an easy to-go breakfast. Enjoy!
