Smoothie with Cayenne and Espresso

  By Ellie Beck  ,

Cayenne, espresso, and peanut butter are an amazing combo! You can even toss some cacao nibs in there. This is a great, healthy power smoothie. It does require a blender, ideally a super strong one like Vitamix, so it's not an everyday thing unless your job for some reason has a blender. But if you can bring a blender in for a special event, you can mix these up, a few at a time, and your co-workers will thank you!

  • Prep: 2 mins
  • Yields: 2 generous servings


1/4 Cup frozen strawberries

1 banana

1 tsp chia seeds

2 tbsp peanut butter

2 cups almond milk

1/2 tsp cayenne powder

1/2 tsp espresso powder

1Put in all in a heavy duty blender and blend it up until everything is mixed and the frozen strawberries are liquified.
