I am super proud of this new flavor discovery! A while back I’d made this coffee frappacino that rivaled and beat Starbucks version. It was my saving grace over the summer, I drank soooo many of them! Problem was I don’t know what happened to the receipe. You think  you’ll always remember it because it tasted so good and you made it so many times but all the recipes made inbetween until Summer came round again, blurred the memories. 

I haven’t found anything that came close…until now. To be clear, this recepe below ISN’T the flavor but….it’s even better! Woohooo! 😃 And that is saying something! Plus, this one has greens in it which the former version definitely didn’t.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooled Coffee (I take the extra from a pot and put it in a mason jar in the fridge, once it’s cooled off)
  • 2 cups Spinach (I keep a bag in the freezer
  • 6-8 Medjool Dates (adjust to your taste)
  • 2 Tbl Hemp Seeds (also stored in the freeer)
  • 2 Tbl Almond Butter
  • 3 cups Coffee Ice Cubes
Add all ingredients to the blender, in the order listed for best results, and blend until smooth.
 
**Cacao Nibs could be a great addition if you want some chocolate flavor and a boost of Jing energy. Also, a few mint leaves thrown in would be tasty too.
 
This is light and refreshing with a bit of a coffee boost and hit of protein with the yummy spinach and hemp seeds. The lack of a banana keeps this smoothie from not being so heavy, the almond butter adds the creaminess.
 
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
 
This cup is actually Yellow. LOL
