Mocha-Flax Smoothie

Mocha-Flax Smoothie


Yield

Serves 1 (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)

This lightly sweetened morning sipper contains only 6 grams added sugars—far less than what you’ll typically find at a smoothie shop. Tangy Greek yogurt provides a hefty amount of protein in this breakfast beverage, while flaxseeds offer up healthy fats and fiber. We call for cold-brew concentrate for a jolt of deep, rich coffee flavor; look for shelf-stable options on the coffee aisle or refrigerated versions near the creamer or with the fresh juices.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 2/3 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup cold-brew coffee concentrate
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
