Giada De Laurentiis Replaces Her Morning Coffee With This Smoothie
Chef Giada De Laurentiis' favorite smoothie is a flavorsome alternative to the classic morning brew, blending nutritious goodies, indulgent chocolate, and ground coffee.
Complementing its caffeine kick, the smoothie is packed with antioxidant-rich foods like bananas, spinach, almond milk, and avocado to help stave off a mid-morning crash.
Coffee-making equipment is not required. Simply whizz all the ingredients, including fresh coffee and coarsely chopped chocolate, together in a blender and enjoy the beverage.
For cold coffee fans, De Laurentiis' smoothie is an equally cooling and uplifting alternative. It's also easily adaptable depending on your preferences and what's in your pantry.
