Here’s a breakfast in a glass that will get you up and running in the morning. A delicious coffee and cacao smoothie will get the day off to a great start and put some pizazz into the start of the day. Hooray!
Aslo, who doesn’t appreciate the chance to start the day with chocolate?
Of course, you don’t need to use actual cacao to ake this, just use ordinary cocoa powder to make your morning coffee and chocolate smoothie, no worries!
I came up with this heart-starter smoothie after being sent the most beautiful coffee cups by Nespresso. They’d been designed to match the coffee capsules – so elegant.
Nespresso had just relaunched their Fortissio Lungo, the green capsule above; it’s a bit stronger than before and I used one of these when making this Thermomix smoothie.
- 200ml milk of your choice (I used Aldi organic soy milk)
- 50g (I tbs) plain yoghurt
- 15g (1 tbs) cacao
- 1 Nespresso lungo coffee (or your favourite coffee)
- Prepare the coffee
- Blend together all ingredients in your blender or using a hand blender. (In the Thermomix, I do 30 seconds at speed 6, or a bit longer. I do love the frothy smoothies the Thermomix makes.)
I often make Thermomix smoothies as I really love the almost foamy texture that I get when I blend them for a good while. I know you can use a stick blender, but I do prefer the Thermie.
I did enjoy messing about taking these photos of this yummola coffee and chocolate smoothie too.
What’s your fave get-going breakfast?
Does the coffee and cacao combination appeal?
