Cool Beans! Banana Coffee Cacao Nib Smoothie – No Dairy!

So if you just gotta’ have something two days in a row …
are you addicted?

Well, I know I am to this mid-day pick me up treat!

Banana Coffee Cacao Nib Smoothie made with Coconut Milk and frozen coffee ice cubes!

 I found these totally cool beans …
coffee bean ice cube tray made out of silicone recently!

I seem to have a little bit of leftover coffee each day so it is a perfect way to not waste, freeze and make a treat … right?!?!
The silicone is soft so it makes it easy to get the cubes out.  It really works … cool beans!

I came up with the idea of this smoothie yesterday because I wanted a combo of creamy, coffee … chocolate and naturally sweet.  This was a perfect excuse to pull out those COOL BEANS that I made the other day!

Banana Coffee Cacao Nib Smoothie
serves one so please double if you are sweet enough to share …
1-2 bananas depending on size
1 Tbs of raw cacao nibs
1 tsp Maca powder
4 cool beans – coffee ice cubes
1/4 or a sprinkle of cinnamon
Put all ingredients in the blender and … blend!
If you like it icier add more cool beans.
I use the cacao nibs because it is a superfood and I love chocolate!
They are a great source of antioxidants, iron and magnesium …
it also gives it a bit of a crunch too!
I use the Maca powder because it is a great way to get natural energy and balance my body. It is a superfood too and great for fighting fatigue with vitamins, essential minerals, fatty and amino acids!
The natural sweetness of the banana is all that you need!
I added a sprinkle of cinnamon because it is good for you and helps to balance
 the natural sugar of the banana so you don’t dip too low in half an hour.
Cool
Beans!
Chill …
