Chocolate Banana Mocha Smoothie

I’m always up for a smoothie year-round. In the heat of the summer, a smoothie is so refreshing. A smoothie during the winter? I’ll take it! (Especially when it’s perfectly packed with so many nutrients that I need). I love how much you can mix and match your ingredients as you create a completely new tasty concoction.

Smoothies are my go-to for breakfast or a snack, especially since pregnancy has given me the craving for everything iced and frozen. I haven’t really had any food aversions throughout pregnancy so far (thank goodness), except one thing….

I can’t sip on my morning cup of joe anymore. Hot coffee that is. I still love the flavor of it but can’t seem to down a hot cup for the life of me. To still get the flavor and little caffeine I need from time to time, I’ve been making iced or frozen coffee drinks to satisfy the craving. I found this recipe from Lakita which combines coffee in a smoothie. It is SO delicious and exactly what I need these days. Thank you Lakita for such a yummy recipe!

In case you need a dinner idea, see the recipe Lakita and I swapped last year, here and be sure to check her blog out for a TON of other mouth-watering recipes!
