An Icy Cold Way to Get Protein and Caffeine
This milkshake-like smoothie from actress, author and Food Network personality Valerie Bertinelli tastes and looks way more decadent than its ingredients would have you believe. The recipe, from the new Valerie's Home Cooking
, stars frozen bananas, ice, almond milk, coffee and regular rolled oats as the main players, with a supporting cast of honey, almond butter, chocolate-covered espresso beans, coconut oil and a dash of vanilla extract. Whip all the ingredients in a blender and you've got a protein-rich smoothie that will keep you going all morning.
