Now that I’ve been living in Portland for a few months, there are a few things that I am desperately missing about San Francisco; and its probably not surprising to any of you that most of them have to do with food or fitness (of course, I also miss my friends but that goes without saying).
And one of the things that I have been missing most is Philz Coffee. And not just the coffee (we have great coffee here too) but the Mint Mojito iced coffee (omg, omg, its so good).
I got a little hit of Philz while we were down in LA for BlogFest in July but it wasn’t enough. It’s been nearly two months and I’ve been dreaming about it, like whoa.
This morning I woke up from yet another dream about a delicious Mint Mojito coffee drink in my hand and decided it was time to make my own mint inspired coffee drink….only in true Jamie fashion…as a smoothie. And since I wasn’t going to be enjoying my mint coffee drink on the rocks in true Philz style, I decided it needed a little crunch to really round it out. Cold brew. Fresh mint. Almond Milk. Cacao nibs. And Hemp Heart Bites. What could be better?
Here’s the recipe (modify as needed – any milk will work, for instance):
- 1/2 cup cold brew
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1 heaping handful of fresh mint (to taste)
- 1 small scoop of cacao nibs (about 2 tbsp)
- 3-4 Hemp Heart Bites (for a little crunch and protein)
And blend…simple and delicious!
And if you haven’t yet tried Hemp Heart Bites, or are wondering what I am even talking about, let me be the first to say that you are MISSING OUT!
Hemp Heart Bites are made with only 5 organic ingredients and are also non-GMO verified and certified kosher. These little bite sized snacks are full of healthy fats, magnesium and manganese, fiber, and whole-food protein (yay for hemp!). They are the perfect way to get hemp protein on the go OR make a great smoothie, yogurt or even ice cream topper (just sayin’).
Whether you want to add some Hemp Heart Bites to your next smoothie (or ice cream sundae) or are looking for a quick, healthy and delicious snack, get 15% off Hemp Heart Bites with the code HHBitesLaunch15 (Expires 11/5/15).
Hope y’all enjoy a minty mocha’y day and as always….
STAY SWEATY friends!

YUM! I love your take on Philz… I will have to try it! And omg, I never thought about using Hemp Heart bites as a smoothie or ice cream topper but DUH, that sounds so delicious and amazing.
Thanks for rocking my taste buds. 😉
