Mocha Frappuccino Coffee Smoothie

Mocha Frappuccino Coffee Smoothie

Happy opening day of The Masters!

Almost 5 years into marriage, I am learning (key word: *learning*) to embrace weekends such as this one. Nate is giddy with delight and has been watching all the highlight reels, reading all the articles, and gearing up for this momentous occasion. I sent him with a pimento cheese sandwich and classic cola to work to help get him in the spirit. This years’ motto is most definitely “if you can’t beat them, join them” so I’m trying me darnedest to go all in and embrace it.

Now, to the delicious smoothie set before you. It’s so good! It’s like a coffee frappuccino without all the sugars and syrups. If you were to use caffeinated cold brew, this baby would have you jiving hard at work! I stick to decaf not even so much for pregnancy but because I’m already too hyper as it is.
