Cauliflower Instead of Ice

This may sound weird we know but trust us! If you don’t want to use ice and want to sneak in some extra veggies into your morning smoothie, this is the way to go. You won’t taste it at all, and it can help thicken up the smoothie.

Protein Powder

You can easily add some more protein to your morning smoothie by adding some chocolate protein powder instead of the cacao powder. However, you can keep both, but then there is more of a chocolaty flavor. There are a ton of different protein options out there to fit your taste and needs.

Add Nutrients

You can jam pack this smoothie with even more nutrients by adding some additional ingredients. Add some flaxseeds for a boost of fiber and minerals, or some chia foods for bonus fiber and fats. Hemp seeds are also a great addition, as they add some healthy fats, minerals, and omegas. Another way to add some healthy fats is by adding some avocado.

Yummy, fresh coffee
