Chocolate-Espresso Smoothie


Answer these questions, are you a coffee addict? Are you a chocoholic? If so, try this delicious chocolate-espresso smoothie recipe that I found on Runners!

Chocolate-Espresso Smoothies from Runner's World. aka heaven in a glass post-run.

How to Make It:

8 ounces chocolate yogurt, such as Brown Cow “Cream Top”
1 large banana (browned and frozen)*
2 shots espresso, chilled
2 cups ice (about 14 ice cubes)
1 dozen chocolate-covered espresso beans

Place half of the yogurt plus all of the remaining ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Add remaining yogurt and pulse until smooth. (If you add the full container of yogurt at the beginning, the mixture is too thick to blend easily.) For a thicker smoothie, blend in up to a cup more ice. Serves two.
