If there's one thing I love about smoothies is how quick and easy they are. Though smoothies are not my favourite way to get my breakfast, there are days when all I have time for is a smoothie. And if I can incorporate my coffee into a smoothie then I'm a happy woman.  

A serving of coffee smoothie.

How to Make it

This smoothie recipe is adaptable to suit your preferences. You can add or eliminate ingredients depending on your own likes and dislikes.

Ingredients Overview:

  • Coffee. You'll need cold coffee for this smoothie. If you want to drink this smoothie first thing in the morning, you'll need to use cold-brew or instant coffee or espresso granules.
  • Unsweetened almond milk. Or your favourite milk.
  • Banana
  • Peanut butter. Natural or regular peanut butter will work.
  • Cocoa powder
  • Honey or other sweetener. If you don't like your coffee sweet you may leave out the honey from the recipe entirely or if you like it extra sweet then you may want to add a bit more. You can also use maple syrup, sugar or another sweetener instead of honey for a vegan coffee smoothie. 
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Ice cubes

If you want an extra caffeine kick you can add an extra teaspoon of instant espresso, it will dissolve and blend in perfectly without a trace of any coffee grinds.

Steps Overview:

To make the smoothie, add the ingredients to the jar of your blender. Blend on high until the ingredients are well blended. Taste to adjust sweetness to your liking and serve immediately.

And if you like your smoothie extra thick you may want to put in a full banana or add more peanut butter.

This sounds awesome! Can't wait to try it but is there anything I can use to sub the banana? Not a fan of bananas :(

Hi, I completely relate, I'm not a fan of bananas either. I find a great thickener for smoothies is Greek yogurt. You can even freeze your yogurt in ice trays. Once frozen transfer the cubes into a freezer bag for use later on. Freezing the yogurt gives the smoothies a really nice texture. I would start by using 4 cubes per serving and add more if you feel you need to.

The weather hasn't been very spring like here as well, I'm hoping things will change soon and I'll have more opportunities for cold drinks!
