I love espresso and chocolate! With a well known coffee shop, that will remained unnamed, having a happy hour sale on their frosty blended beverages I thought it was the perfect time to pull out one of my favorite shakes. This Mocha Maca Chip Energizing Smoothie/Shake is delicious yet has many good for you benefits and will have you energized for hours!
