Mocha Almond Smoothie
Forget those calorie-heavy iced frappés from chain coffee houses—let’s talk about a frosty summer mocha treat that gets your engine revving with plant-based goodness! Our final recipe in the Energizing Smoothie Series is the Mocha Almond Smoothie—a decadent blend of coffee, chocolate, and almonds that’s sure to delight. We all know you can’t really have mocha anything without a hint of coffee, so remember that decaf is an option (even when you’re committed to energizing through nourishment, not stimulation).
- 1 serving Vega Protein Smoothie Choc-a-lot

- 1 tbsp ground coffee, decaf or regular (substitute a stick of instant Mocha Starbucks Via, or a chilled shot of espresso—whatever you prefer and have on-hand)
