This healthy Mocha Smoothie is made with coffee or mocha grain beverage. Either way, it's a great way to start your day!
This Mocha Smoothie is a sweet treat for breakfast. I've included two options for making it; one with cold brew or regular coffee and the other with mocha grain beverage.
If you want your coffee and breakfast all in one, the coffee route is a great way to go.
Mix frozen banana, cacao powder, ground chia seeds, coffee or mocha grain beverage, and almond milk or soy milk in a high speed blender.
A grain beverage is a great alternative for people who don't drink coffee or want to cut back on caffeine. It doesn't taste quite like coffee, but it does have a nice robust flavor.
It comes in different flavors, like almond amaretto, dark roast, hazelnut, vanilla nut, maca chocolate and more. It comes in tea bag form and an all-purpose grind, which you brew in your coffee maker.

*Note: Nutrition information should be considered an estimate only. Different nutrition calculators give you different results.
*Note: When I originally published this post I used the Teecino beverage with barley. Now they have certified gluten free products, which I linked to above.
If you do happen to purchase the one with barley, this is their info on gluten in their products:
According to Teecino, an independent laboratory tested their products for gluten and found no detectable levels. They recommend using a paper filter in a drip coffee maker or their tea bags. I am not Celiac, but gluten intolerant. I have never had an adverse reaction. Check out Teecino’s website here:
