Both coffee and unsweetened cocoa powder have bitter notes. This recipe uses banana and vanilla yogurt to sweeten the smoothie. If you prefer to lower the sugar content, consider using nonfat plain Greek yogurt instead of vanilla, and add stevia or a low-calorie sweetener of your choice.
If you use leftover coffee or espresso instead of instant coffee powder, then chill first before adding to the blender.
