Mochaccino or mochachino? Google couldn't seem to answer my question on this - probably because one spelling is Italian and the other one is English. Let's stick with Italian version shall we? ;) Regardless of how we spell it, it's gosh darn YUMMY!!
Don't let the flavour fool you into thinking this smoothie isn't power packed with energizing ingredients.
I don't know about you, but most of us could all use a little extra energy, especially if you are living in a climate like I am. Snow, little sun and frigid temperatures. I keep reminding myself that spring flowers are just around the corner!
Hopefully you saw my video on 12 Ways to Boost Your Energy and you've arrived here on the blog today because the force brought you here to try this AMAZING smoothie that tastes like a mochaccino. Let me tell you about the featured ingredient in my energy smoothie.
Greens+ Extra Energy -- BAM!
Just one serving daily (like a scoop in this smoothie) provides you with:
Energy boosting INGREDIENTS
You may have never heard of "kola nut seed extract" before...
It is a natural caffeine providing sustained energy and it is rich in polyphenols that support the nervous system.
If you want to learn more about the formulation and the research, then check out Genuine Health's website.
Important note: You may notice the label says "skim milk" on the ingredients list. And no, I'm not recommending you start slurping cow's milk again. This label claim is mandated by Health Canada because Greens+ Extra Energy contains eight bacterial cultures which are grown on a dairy medium, not unlike most probiotic supplements.
Joyous Highlights (additional ingredients in this mochaccino):
In case you have never enjoyed a mochaccino before, it tastes like a cappuccino with chocolate added.
*You could also use raw cacao nibs too, instead of chocolate chips. Walker likes chocolate chips and I made this smoothie for him!
When should you drink this smoothie? At the start of the day, so you have joyous sustained energy all day long. I do not recommend drinking this in the evening before bed unless you have a wild night planned -- oh LA LA!
Have a joyous day!
