Will Run For Chocolate Banana Coffee Smoothies

The best part of early long Sunday runs (if you haven't convinced your running partner that you should eat cake or drink lattes instead) is eating breakfast for the second time.  Ideally your second breakfast is something delicious that someone else has prepared like the waffles and strawberry coulis that were being made at pace bunny's house (thanks for the tepid tap water by the way).


The next best thing is a chocolate banana coffee smoothie!   According to the my plate feature at www.livestrong.com this smoothie contains 235 calories, 5g of fibre, 5g of protein and 2g of fat (incase you were interested). 


Chocolate Banana Coffee Smoothie
(serves 1)

ingredients

1 frozen banana 
*1/2 C light soy milk 
1 tsp instant coffee
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until desired consistency is reached.   If you don't have a frozen banana you can reduce the amount of soy milk and add ice.

  1. I'm sure that my waffles and coulis was almost as good as your tepid tap water...anytime. PS: Where are my promised macaroons?
