This healthy mocha smoothie is packed with good for you ingredients like sweet potato, banana, Greek yogurt, and chia seeds, plus, it packs a caffeine punch!
I know we’re a week past daylight savings time, but I feel like I’ve been hearing “I’m so tired” from EVERYONE, myself & J included lately. SO, this is me saying I hear you, I see you & I’m making you a smoothie with coffee and actually filling ingredients to get you through this little slump.
I go back and forth with smoothie love, sometimes I’m really into them and sometimes I’m not! But lately, ever since I discovered Daily Harvest, I’ve been craving them big time.
One thing that I love about the smoothies I get from Daily Harvest is that a lot of them have really filling ingredients in them. A bit of frozen fruit and milk is rarely enough to be a meal or even a snack for me.
So, I decided to add some sweet potato here to add bulk, good for you carbs & calories to help power me though my day. You feel?
If you’re a smoothie fan, this Easy Green Apple Smoothie has been getting a TON of love lately!Print
