Mocha Morning Buzz

This chilled chocolatey smoothie version of your morning cuppa will keep you full and energised all morning - plus it tastes delicious!

Ingredients

  • 3–5 soft dates, pitted
  • 2 teaspoons Cacao Powder
  • 3 tablespoons rolled oats (choose certified gluten-free if allergic)
  • 250 ml (1 cup) unsweetened plant milk
  • 1–2 shots espresso (approx. 2–4 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon cold-pressed coconut oil
  • 2 ice cubes

Method

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on a high speed until completely smooth.
  2. Taste and adjust the sweetness and coffee flavour to your liking by adding more dates, espresso or milk, if necessary.
  3. Pour into one medium-sized glass or cup (as featured in the photo) and enjoy right away. The swirl in the photo is simply a splash of extra plant milk stirred with a spoon.
