Banana Coffee smoothie Recipe

healthy living

This simple recipe stemmed from my love of coffee and smoothies, it is vegan and gluten free. The flavour was exactly what I wanted, so if you’re tired of your usual smoothies and need a caffeine kick, give this a try. It can be a breakfast, snack or a pre-workout meal in my case, the best part is you can modify it by adding any vanilla protein powder you like.

I like adding cacao nibs and chia seeds at the end of making my smoothie because it adds fibre and nutrients, but also because I enjoy the texture. If simply drinking a smoothie is fine for you then you can omit this last step, but personally like the crunch.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2-1 cup almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 2 tsp instant coffee or 1 shot of espresso
  • 1 tsp cacao nibs or cacao powder
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2-1 Scoop protein powder (I used Organifi’s Vanilla)

STEPS:

  1. Blend frozen bananas, coffee, almond milk, protein powder and cacao nibs in a powerful blender. (I used my nutribullet)
  2. Pulse your blender if needed.
  3. Pour in a glass and mix in the chia seeds.
