Vegan 'Wake The Heck Up' Starbucks Smoothie

Vegan 'Wake The Heck Up' Starbucks Smoothie
In the AM I love to have my morning coffee but I also like to have my smoothie for breakfast...so why not combine them? We all want that morning wake up and we have to eat, so the idea of this smoothie is to meet all those needs. This recipe shows you how to have that morning pick me up and your perfect protein smoothie in one, 100% vegan and 100% delish! Serve as is, frothy, and/or over ice, no way can it be wrong here. Add more ingredients to bump up the nutrients or make enough for your sweetie. Nothing can be wrong with this smoothie, enjoy!

All Ingredients in Blender

Blending Smoothie

Finished Smoothie

Taste and add more syrup, milk, coffee, or anything else you might want in your smoothie. This is one I love to have espresso with but you can use any kind of coffee (de-caff, low acid, etc.). This recipe is completely easy and you can change it up a lot. Serve in a large glass or split into 2 for another person with a straw. Enjoy!
