The Wake Me Up Smoothie – A dose of caffeine to open your mind
The Wake Me Up Smoothie gives you a double hit of caffeine. Coffee and cocoa powder provide you with the perfect wake up call to get you thinking clearly quickly. A low-fat yogurt and soy milk help to add a bit of creaminess to this breakfast smoothie with the last ingredient being a medium sized orange to add a bit of zest and add some contrast to the coffee and cocoa. This blend of ingredients gives the smoothie a more liquid viscosity.
Info about The Wake Me Up Smoothie
This is one of my favorites however the key to doing it right lies in getting the right mix of cocoa and coffee and making sure all of the ingredients are blended well. I am specifically referring to the oranges. I normally blend this smoothie for a little bit extra maybe around 25 seconds just to make sure the pulp of the orange has been broken up. As stated above the ingredients don’t make for a big smoothie so feel free to add 100 ml of water if you would like a longer lasting drink.
Using generic regular instant coffee and 100% pure cocoa powder this drink provides around 74 mg of caffeine. This amount will vary depending on your specific brand of coffee. The type and brand of coffee will also affect the overall taste.
The Wake Me Up Smoothie has a low amount of calories. It has high levels of vitamin C, vitamin B12, riboflavin and contains a good amount of calcium and phosphorus. The Wake Me Up Smoothie has got a 61 in the SmoothFuel Nutritional Score. The reason why it didn’t score higher was its low amount or total lack of some vitamins such as vitamin K. But who needs vitamins when it’s 7 am and you can’t open your eyes, right?
