Morning Coffee Smoothie
Our Zenberry Holy Frappe just came out of production Thursday and our organic fare-trade espresso, procured from a really cool Brooklyn-based company, was freshly ground the day before Zenberry Holy Frappe production run. Super fresh!
Coffee is big with riders, cyclists like Shane and motorcycle riders like me (this photo was taken by my French friend Dominic who is also the President of NY Classic Riders Club I affiliate with). I usually bring my green juice or Zenberry smoothie in my backpack when I ride with my Moto ❤️ all riders always end up meeting at a coffee rest stop!
Holy Frappe is Shane's favorite recovery smoothie after races or hard training rides because studies show that consuming carbs with caffeine after a workout increases your muscle glycogen (stored energy) by up to 60% over consuming the same carbs alone. It "super injects" the glycogen but they aren't exactly sure how, yet.
The intention of Holy Frappe was always to create a healthy Frappuccino without all the sugar, pesticides, food additives, artificial flavoring for hard working people. All the flavor, none of the junk. We succeeded.
So here it goes, the Morning Coffee Smoothie Recipe. Ultra simple:
- 10 Oz Creamy nut milk
- 2 TBSP Holy Frappe
Shake well or use blender!
Other variations we love. Use frozen banana and blender to make thick like a Frappuccino.
- 2 Oz Creamy cashew milk
- 2 TBSP coconut cream (in a can) or 2 TBSP almond butter
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 TBSP Holy Frappe
And if you crave the sugar load from
Starbucks Frappuccino, use 1 or 2 TBSP of real maple syrup or 1 teaspoon organic coconut palm sugar. Your body will thank you.
This is so good. Nothing else needed because Zenberry Holy Frappe includes all the other foods you want to eat: dark leafy greens, grasses, seaweed and algae, brown rice protein, maca, raw cacao, probiotics, enzymes etc.
I've never been fearful of aging. I'm not sure why but I just always saw it as a part of life. When you're young it's easy not to think about it much. I've been an athlete pretty much my entire life. The last 15 years I've been obsessed with bike racing. I love road racing [...]
