A powerful and subtle recipe from my book of chocolate smoothies.
Burning The Midnight Oil
Yields 4 Cups
- 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
- 3 frozen bananas (thawed)*
- 1 tablespoon protein powder
- 2 cups brewed coffee
- 1 tablespoon peppermint extract
- 1 small (about 2-inch-square) brownie
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Place all ingredients in a blender and mix on medium for 1 minute.
2. Pour into tall glasses and serve. Be prepared for unexpected fits of dancing, prancing and romancing.
*To freeze bananas, peel and chop them, seal in plastic bags, and place in the freezer until frozen.
