Banana-Mocha Cappucino

Okay, so a hot cup of coffee around here is a rarity.  I either get distracted with all of the things I can do while I'm up between 5 & 6 and everyone else is asleep (no, sleep is something a normal person would do) OR someone wakes up and needs something. 

Right now, both boys are napping and I'm having some coffee!!  It's 3:37, but who cares.  Ideally this would be a great to-go summer breakfast.  Today, it's just a fancy cup of coffee!

Banana-Mocha Cappucino

1 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup brewed coffee (or a little extra if you're behind like me)
1 banana (that brown one will even work)
2 tsp. cocoa powder
4 ice cubes

Combine in a blender.  Process.  Get fancy and add some whipping cream with a drizzle of chocolate syrup, JUST like Starbucks does it.  Live a little!

(Serves 1 or 2, depending on how generous you're feeling)

  1. too funny! i'm glad you are finally able to enjoy what sounds like an amazing cup of coffee! believe it or not i wasn't able to have my coffee this morning so i'm also having coffee at 4:14 in the afternoon. mine is much, much more boring though!

  2. Well, I will have to try this simply because your side comments cracked me up!! And at 3:37.....you probably could have gotten away with adding a little somethin' somethin' to it!

  3. This sounds like a nice little coffee break drink. Get some rest woman!
