Chocolate Espresso Smoothie

Chocolate Espresso Smoothie

Is there anything better than chocolate for breakfast? Add some instant espresso powder, and you’re ready to conquer the day! I used Medjool dates as a natural sweetener. And if you’re daring, you could even sneak in a handful of baby spinach. No one would be the wiser.

Chocolate Espresso Smoothie

1 cup light vanilla soy milk
½ frozen banana
3 pitted Medjool dates
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder (or more depending on how strong you want it)*
A dash of sea salt
1/2 cup loosely packed baby spinach (optional)


  1. Soak the Medjool dates in warm water for 10 minutes or until plump.
  2. Take the dates out of the water and blend all of the ingredients together. Pour the smoothie into a large glass and enjoy!

* My favorite brand of espresso powder is Medaglia D’Oro. It comes in a small 2 oz. jar with the Italian flag on its label. You can find it at the grocery store, next to the instant coffee and hot cocoa mixes.
