Healthy Coffee Smoothie

The Perfect Breakfast Smoothie For Coffee-Lovers

I've eliminated a number of things from my diet — even for a short period of time — but caffeine is not on that list. Luckily, there are a bunch of benefits to a coffee habit like improved workout performance and disease-fighting antioxidants. I can't get through the morning without a cup of coffee, but when I'm in a rush, I'm sorry to say it sometimes comes at the price of proper breakfast.

This caffeinated smoothie changes everything, since it combines cold-brew coffee and breakfast in one glass. Low in calories and high in protein, this chocolate drink will keep you fueled and energized until your next snack or meal. Coffee-lovers (or former breakfast-haters) will fall hard for this creamy and sweet smoothie.
