Enjoy this warm coffee smoothie with a minty twist!
Why It's So Good For You
Despite what you may have been told, coffee actually offers some health benefits when consumed in moderation. Coffee beans are packed with antioxidants, and have been shown to help protect against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, liver disease, and liver cancer! The addition of a healthy fat and protein source to this smoothie also helps to slow the release of the caffeine into your system, reducing the likelihood of an energy crash!
