This is a brilliant way to get the day going. If you prefer, you can leave out the cocoa and cinnamon.
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cold milk
- 1 shot espresso
- 120ml Greek plain yoghurt, chilled
- ¼ vanilla pod, split and the seeds scraped out (or ½ tsp real vanilla extract instead)
- 1 banana
- pinch of cinnamon
- ½ tsp agave nectar, or 1 tsp sugar syrup or honey, or to taste
Mix the cocoa and milk together thoroughly to form a paste. Add it along with all the other ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth. Serve in a tall glass.
