Mocha Smoothie

October 1, 2008 at 9:57 am (Counter Culture) (, , , , , , , )

Ingredients:

1 cup fat-free milk

1 medium banana, peeled and frozen

2 tablespoons sugar or honey (I use brown sugar)

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons instant coffee crystals

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup ice cubes

Directions:

Combine all ingredients (except ice) in blender.  Cover and blend until smooth.  Add the ice, cover, and blend until nearly smooth.  Pour into glasses and enjoy!  Makes two servings.  (Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.)

Why go out and pay $4 for something you can make at home?  This is a great alternative to buying fancy coffee drinks out–It’s cheaper, oh-so-tasty and fun to make–and it’s much healthier!  If you want a stronger coffee flavor, just add more coffee!
