New Favorite Smoothie Recipe with an Energy Boost!

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are all having a great week so far!  Mine has been LONG.  That is what usually happens before a 3 day weekend since I am more anxious for the weekend.  My husband, and our pups, are driving to Dallas on Friday to meet my mom, sister, and her bf to help my sister and her bf move into their new house!!! Eeeek I can’t wait!  It is extra special because this is their first time purchasing a home.  Each time we have purchased a home is exciting, but there is nothing like the first time!  I am seriously so proud of them.  I told you guys my sister is working in corporate law and some days she literally sleeps 2 hours… working until way past midnight.  I don’t know how she does it.  I’d quit. 😉 So we are all really ready to help make their new house a home!  

Anyway, I’ve got a new smoothie recipe for you today!  I may have mentioned that I have given up coffee a few times over the years because it upsets my stomach.  My sister actually has the same reaction to coffee as well.  I had an allergy test done once and coffee was one of my top five things I am allergic to… soo it makes sense that I don’t feel great when I drink it.  But I love it. 🙂 My sister and I actually both get tired after we drink coffee, which is obviously the opposite effect it has on most people.  We researched this and it actually is a real issue that affects a small percentage of people.  Weird, right?  

Back on track… my husband is really into cold brew coffee with almond milk these days so I decided to switch up my morning smoothie the other day and by surprise, it is now a favorite of mine!! 

Yall, I don’t measure so I am not sure how much of each ingredient I used, but really smoothies can be adjusted to your preference since it will all be blended together anyway.  

This smoothie contains: ice, frozen banana, almond butter, cinnamon, cold brew coffee, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

Sometimes I put it in a glass, sometimes a bowl, and sometimes I add spinach or greens powder to it.  The possibilities are endless!

  1. Ah congrats again to your sister!! So exciting! And how awesome of you to support her in light of the demands of her new job. The late nights are definitely tough, but as time goes on, I bet she’ll find that BigLaw makes up for it by giving you a whole lot of flexibility in the slower times 🙂 Have a great time in Dallas!!

    Your smoothies are the prettiest color!! I actually don’t like smoothies though :/ I’m a coffee girl all the way — I’m almost embarrassingly dependent on it.

  2. This smoothie looks SO yummy & perfect for the morning! how wild about coffee having the opposite effect! “PM” cold medicine does that to me– it’s supposed to make you sleepy, but it makes me wired! Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe!
