Health Benefits
  1. Plantains and bananas: are both rich in potassium, dietary fiber, and vitamins. When frozen and blended into our Banana Coffee Smoothie, they provide a milkshake-like consistency.

  2. Cold brew concentrate: is a low-acid coffee produced without heat. Here, the cold brew concentrate makes this a caffeine smoothie that will boost your energy at any time of the day. If you are sensitive to caffeine, be sure to enjoy this coffee smoothie at least five hours before you go to bed.

  3. Almond milk and almonds: are rich in healthy fats, protein, and nutrients. And for those who prefer dairy-free smoothies, the almond milk imparts a creaminess just as good as regular cow’s milk.

  4. Dark chocolate: is packed with antioxidants and health benefits. But let’s be honest—dark chocolate makes everything better.

  5. Vanilla extract: is made by soaking vanilla beans in alcohol for several months. Vanilla extract is a pantry staple for bakers, but many don’t realize that it is also a powerful antioxidant that fights oxidative stress.
