National Coffee Day, which is what today is (and really, what for most people is #everyday!) has never meant squat to me. It’s not that I’m anti-caffeine – I looove me some matcha , I just don’t at all like the taste of coffee.
Maybe it stems from that time when I was 8 and was playing in the snow in my backyard and got insanely thirsty so I ran into my house, grabbed a thermos and chugged like a frat brother and 2 minutes in realized that I wasn’t chugging water, I was chugging coffee and almost vomited?!
Or maybe I’m just not a coffee person.
Either way, this year, National Coffee Day DOES mean squat to me because I happened to win a cutthroat smoothie competition last week with ironically, this chocolate coffee protein smoothie:
- BLEND, BABY, BLEND!!
