Mocha Breakfast Milkshake

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on April 8, 2011


Gorgeous weather only means one thing to my husband in April.  Fire.  We have a fairly large yard with a lot of trees so come April(the only month in spring that we’re allowed to burn) we do a lot of burning.  Today is a beautiful day so my husband and son have been out there for an hour already getting ready and starting a fire.  My daughter and I on the other hand have been cleaning up the house so we(read: I) don’t feel bad spending the rest of the day outside, neglecting the inside of my house. This only means one thing.  No time for a breakfast that takes a long time.  Throw it in the blender and drink it up.  Quick, easy, done.  Did I mention it tastes good?  Heck, I’m categorizing this under dessert because it’s that yummy.  That’s why I’m calling it a milkshake.  And who doesn’t want a milkshake for breakfast?  I shared this with both kids, but realistically I would have drank the whole thing to myself if I could have.

Yum I love that you snuck spinach in there and its not the least bit green. I havent tried a mocha smoothie yet but I definitely need to this looks delish!

I think the cocoa powder/coffee hid the green 😀 It hid the taste too, it was great 😀

I did enjoy it! It was a wonderful mixture of health, chocolate and the jolt I “needed” from the coffee 🙂

Hi Heidi! I loved this shake but found myself wanting more. Do you know any way I could bulk it up a little?

I’m glad you enjoyed it! You could try adding a spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter or maybe even some ground flax or chia seeds if you like them.
