Recipe: Coffee Almond Fudge Shake

by JJ Virgin on December 22, 2017

It’s no secret that I’m a loaded smoothie fan, and the chocolate, coffee, and almonds bring delicious, nutty flavor to this recipe.

But there are so many reasons to love this combo beyond the irresistible taste! The flavanols in chocolate do amazing things for your heart, skin, and mood. Meanwhile, almonds are full of healthy omega-3s that take great care of your immune system and help you fight inflammation.

Then there’s metabolism-boosting coffee, which offers plenty of impressive health benefits on its own. Java has been proven to reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, protect your brain health, and more. (Find out all the ways it helps in this blog.)

The end result is a smoothie that comes together in just 5 minutes and helps you feel energized and satisfied for hours.
