Coconut Almond Coffee Smoothie from Bulletproof Coffee
This is curated content hand picked for Foodie Friday!
This delicious almond-coconut coffee smoothie packs the same caffeine punch as a standard cup of Bulletproof Coffee but mixes in gut-nourishing and connective-tissue-repairing collagen protein with fiber, to keep you satiated and recovering optimally after a high-activity day.
High-quality ingredients are key to performing at your best, and finding ways to incorporate the incredible levels of polyphenols that come with the mighty coffee bean is integral to being Bulletproof. This coffee smoothie recipe is perfect for that afternoon pick-me-up, when you are in a rush, or after an early morning of strenuous activity.
It contains medium-chain fatty acids for quick energy, with the longer-chain monounsaturated fats from almonds to create a satiating shake designed to keep you moving throughout your day while turning you into a fat-burning machine.
