Chocolate-Coffee Breakfast Shake Recipe

In keeping with the theme of I-can-probably-make-it-better-and-healthier-at-home (see: Wild Blueberry Frozen Yogurt), I decided to embark on new, sacred territory: Coffee territory. Instead of getting a fancy iced and/or blended coffee beverage for upwards of $4 this morning, I thought, why don’t I make my own? Who needs the extra sugar that those coffee chains put in that mystery mixture anyway? I drink it, but I don’t necessarily trust it.

This is definitely The Coffee Blended, Gone Hippie; but it turned out pretty delicious. And it got the sweet caffeine-jolt job done. So if you need a little help waking up this morning, try out this coffee breakfast shake on for size.
