Strawberry Mocha Smoothie

This smoothie is a great way to start your morning. It's your cup of coffee and your breakfast all in one! Whenever I can combine my morning splash of caffeine with my meal, I'm in, seeing as I always manage to find myself rushing out the door for work. This Strawberry Mocha Smoothie is refreshing and provides that much needed coffee flavor in the morning hours. I used raw cacao powder in this recipe, as I do in many of my smoothies. Raw cacao powder is different from typical cocoa powder because it is made from minimally processed cacao beans and lacks added ingredients. Cacao powder is a great source of antioxidants, along with several minerals including magnesium. Surprisingly, it's also a source of dietary fiber!

Strawberry Mocha Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 6 frozen strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons coffee concentrate
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1/2 cup almond milk


In a food processor or a high-powered blender, combine the frozen banana and strawberries until smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until combined. I topped it with cacao nibs, but any of your favorite smoothie toppers would work.
