It's no secret that at Go Vita Ballarat we love our coffee. Mid-morning, you will often spot some of our staff members skipping back from one of the amazing nearby cafes with a tray full lattes, long blacks and flat whites.
But being a team of health enthusiasts, we are also big fans of Before You Speak coffee; instant coffee with the added benefits of superfoods like MCT oil, turmeric and ginseng.
And with this recipe from Before You Speak with coffee, chocolate and hazelnut: our Mondays. Are. Made.
1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice) – more or less to desired consistency
1 sachet of Before You Speak Coffee (Glow Mocha or The OG works well)
1-2 Tablespoons of cacao powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1-2 Tablespoons of chocolate hazelnut butter
A pinch of pink salt
1/4-1/2 cup of ice – more or less to desired consistency
If you prefer a sweeter brew add 1/2 teaspoon of monk fruit sweetener (coconut sugar or sweetener of choice) – more or less to taste
1 Tablespoon of melted dark chocolate to swirl your glass
1 teaspoon of maca powder – for hormone balance
1-2 scoops of collagen – for gut healing goodness
1 scoop of Beforeyouspeak Chocolate Creamer – makes it extra lush
1 scoop protein powder – for extra protein
Place all smoothie ingredients into your blender and process until smooth, creamy and well combined.
Pour into a chilled glass or mason jar then top with toppings of choice.
