Guilt-Free Mocha Smoothie

With chia seeds and cocao nibs, this frozen coffee drink is not only tasty, but healthy too.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup soaked chia seeds (replaces a frozen banana)
  • 1 cup plant-based milk, divided
  • Red Eye ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Cocoa nibs for garnish

Steps

  1. The night before: make a cup of coffee with a shot of espresso (a Red Eye), and pour the cooled coffee into an ice tray. Freeze overnight.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup chia seeds with 1/2 cup plant-based milk and leave in the fridge to plump overnight.
  3. In the morning, blend the ice cubes, soaked chia seeds, cacao powder, 1/2 cup milk and cinnamon in the blender until thick and smooth. Pour into two glasses and top with cacao nibs for crunch!
