Start your day with a bit of carbohydrate, protein, and a touch of coffee. This smoothie is rich in calcium and soluble fiber, which slows absorption of sugar into the bloodstream to provide longer-lasting energy. If caffeine's not your thing, substitute decaf. Or eliminate the coffee and cocoa altogether and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon after blending.


  • 1 cup nonfat or low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup brewed coffee
  • 1 banana
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 2 ice cubes



1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth.
