I am digging this cooler weather. Ahh, 74. T hat's just about right in the summer for me, thank you very much.
It's Saturday! Anyone have any big weekend plans? Maybe go out for a nice, log walk. Catch up with your favorite novel, perhaps? Maybe figure out what's wrong with the fridge? Or just binge-watch Stranger Things?
Well, whatever the weekend has in store for you, one thing is always certain: you are going to require the coffees!
Ahh, coffee. I love fitting it into my diet any which way I can get it. Into brownies? Sure! Into ice cream? Why not? Poured quickly straight into my mouth? ALWAYS! 😋
And if you're looking for new and delicious ways to consume coffee, here's one for you. It's coffee in a smoothie!
This is perfect for both a hurried or lazy morning. It has banana, coffee, PEANUT BUTTER, YA'LL, and cocoa powder. And personally I love the texture from the frozen banana. And if you want to add a few cubes of ice or freeze some coffee ice cubes and stick them in there, I wouldn't blame you! If you like the texture of frozen hot chocolate, you'll like this. It's great on its own before a morning run, or why not have it with a piece of toast and go really crazy? Double peanut butter!
Personally the way I like this smoothie best is by doubling the recipe and getting as much coffee in my system as possible. 🎉😀. Just kidding! Except maybe not really. 😉
