Fab4 Mocha Smoothie

  • Author: jzmcbride

  • Yield: 10 ounces 1x


When I need a little morning pick-me-up, I’ve been devouring this Fab4 Mocha Smoothie. It’s a delicious mashup of cold brew coffee and chocolate with just a hint of sweetness and a little bit of crunch. The best part?  No gluten, preservatives and processed junk.


  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup cold brew coffee, espresso or strong brewed coffee, cooled
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I like Vital Proteins or the chocolate flavor from Primal Foods )
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or substitute coconut milk)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or substitute peanut butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter)
  • 1/4 cup frozen spinach, kale or cauliflower
  • (optional) 1 Blender Bomb
  • (optional) unsweetened cacao nibs or crushed whole coffee beans


  1. Place all ingredients except cacao nibs in blender and combine until smooth.
  2. Garnish with cacao nibs or coffee beans if desired


If you don’t have a Blender Bomb just add a little hemp hearts, chia seeds (or both) for some extra fiber.

For nut-free version, substitute sunflower seed butter for peanut butter.
