Recipe: Healthy Espresso Smoothie
This smoothie is sweet, flavorful and caffeinated. What’s not to love? It’s naturally sweetened by the banana and is extra smooth because of the cashews and collagen, both of which provide an added boost of healthy protein. All of the ingredients are filling enough that this recipe works as a great dessert-for-breakfast type smoothie and will leave you invigorated and satisfied! This recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free and paleo-friendly.
