Espresso Banana Smoothie

Happy New Year, lovelies! This is my favorite time of year for food blogging because, as you know, I am a huge fan of smoothies and protein shakes.

Of course I don’t limit my protein shake obsession to just one time of year.

I do post them throughout the year but this time of year is definitely when they are the most popular – when everyone is making new year resolutions to lose weight or get in shape.

Espresso Banana Smoothie

I don’t think I’ve made a new year resolution in quite some time. I’m terrible at sticking to them and I’ve come to realize that I do much better by making smaller, more manageable goals throughout the year and then accomplish those.

Even though I just had a baby in November, I still didn’t make a resolution to lose weight.

I know that I will lose the weight eventually… and I do have a goal of doing it before my husband graduates residency in June… but it’s not a resolution for me.

Espresso Banana Smoothie

I do need to get myself back onto a little bit better eating plan and this espresso smoothie has been a staple in my diet for the past few months.

I am addicted to coffee and espresso and I am always finding myself adding a couple teaspoons (or Tablespoons) to my daily protein shakes and smoothies.

It gives me a little pick me up in the afternoon without me having to make more coffee. And with three kids now, I am definitely needing an afternoon jolt.
