ChocoNut & Coffee Smoothie [Vegan/Gluten Free]

I’m hit and miss with smoothies.  I go through phases.  When I’m “on” to them, they are actually all I want for every single meal.  When I’m off…I can’t even think about them.  

This smoothie is actually a copy-cat of one from the local coffee shop.  It has nothing healthy in it.  < Well, that isn’t true.  It just doesn’t have anything green in it.  I have nothing at all against green smoothies, and drink them often.  But that isn’t what this smoothie is made for.  It’s made to drag you out of bed on a sad Monday morning and make the world seem shiny and bright again.  < Yeah.  Big claims, I know.  But it’s good.  🙂 ChocoNut & Coffee Smoothie [Vegan/Gluten Free]The best parts about this smoothie are all of the parts.  Chocolate.  Peanut Butter.  Coffee.  Cinnamon.  < And some other stuff to make it a smoothie and not just a pile of those things.  🙂 Although..a chocolate peanut butter coffee cinnamon pile sounds amazing.  

Oh.  And you’ll notice I have a pretty, cute, decorative straw.  Don’t use one of those.  Use a super big jumbo wide straw.  Because this smoothie is made to be enjoyed in big gulps!ChocoNut & Coffee Smoothie [Vegan/Gluten Free]Let’s do this.  🙂
