More About This Recipe

*nutrition facts will vary depending on the protein power used.
The tradition of starting each morning with the smell and taste of a freshly brewed espresso is
one of the many things I love about my Italian heritage. According to some research coffee may alter our fat storage and increase our gut health! What I love about this smoothie is, I get that coffee flavor-with protein and good carbohydrates needed to help me have good energy to do an awesome workout! In addition to yummy espresso, I’ve added flax meal to the smoothie to bump up the fiber and good fats, and protein powder to help increase my lean body mass!
Health benefits of espresso:
  • According to some research, coffee could alter fat storage and support gut
    health, both of which may be beneficial for weight management. For example,
    one review of 12 studies concluded that higher coffee consumption could be
    associated with decreased body fat, especially in men
Benefits of Flaxseed:
  • Flaxseed is an excellent source of dietary fiber. It's also a source of iron, potassium, and magnesium, as well as B-vitamins and carotenoids like lutein.
  • However, for flaxseeds to be beneficial to your body and bowel movements,
    the U.S. National Library of Medicine explains that ground flax seeds are much
    better at providing nutrients than whole ones, which often pass undigested
    through the digestive tract.
