Press-ipes: Espresso Chocolate Bone Broth Smoothie

Bone broth and sweet smoothies may be unlikely bedfellows, but before you close out this window in disgust — hear me out. Your tastebuds will thank you.

Bloggers have long celebrated the joy of sneaking a daily dose of broth into their diets in unexpected ways, and the slightly savory flavor of the broth actually works to round out the sweet and bitter notes from the bananas, dates, coffee, and cacao nibs. The result? A perfect marriage of morning pick-me-up and nourishing, protein-packed goodness.

Garnish with edible flowers for a little extra flair.
