Coffee & Chocolate Smoothie


Few things say "good morning" like coffee. I actually have an on-off relationship with coffee, but at the moment it's definitely on. After a week of crappy coffee at work, that cup of hot coffee at home on Saturday mornings tastes truly glorious. Today, though, I wanted to try and add my coffee to a smoothie instead, which turned out so delicious!

This smoothie contains a cup of cold coffee and also banana, dates, cacao... And with the addition of protein and healthy fats from hemp seeds and complex carbs from oats, this smoothie is a nutritious and quite filling start to the day. I used cold brewed coffee here, but chilled "normal" coffee works just as well.

Today we're only one week away from Christmas Eve! We have lots of snow here, and I hope it stays until Christmas. Last weekend my love and I did some serious Christmas baking. We made gingerbread cookies, saffron buns, sourdough Christmas bread and vegan butterscotch candies. So I guess we're almost ready for Christmas now♥.
