Easy Espresso Smoothie Recipe

I love espresso and I am a big fruit smoothie drinker too. It only seemed natural to me that combining the two would be delicious, so when I saw this recipe from KRUPS, I knew I had to try it. Well, I'm happy to report, hubby and I made them last weekend and oh my geeeee....they were delicious! We will definitely be making them again. Hubby enjoyed his just like the recipe which is included below but after I made mine...I topped it with some yummy whipped cream. In addition, I stirred just a tad of ground cinnamon into mine during the blending process too. YUMMY GOOD!

Have you ever tried an Espresso smoothie before? If not, here's your chance to try one. Enjoy the recipe!

This espresso smoothie sounds delicious. I like the idea of adding cinnamon. As a change I might use almond extract instead of maple syrup to cut down on the sugar.
