3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (if you only have sweetened cocoa, use less honey)
6 ounces plain Greek yogurt (or ½ an avocado will also work)
¾ cup almond milk
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Optional: ¼ cup of decaffeinated coffee for a rich mocha flavor
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve & Enjoy!
