Start your day the right way with a coffee banana smoothie
What gets you out of bed in the morning? Bananas? A bowl of oats? A good cup of freshly brewed coffee? What about all three?
That’s right, because we’ve created a coffee banana smoothie that’ll give your AM a serious boost. It’s healthy, filling and super speedy – just what you need to take you from zero to hero on bleary-eyed mornings!
Smoothies can get some bad rap for being too sweet. And some, especially shop-bought ones, are basically sugar through a straw. But not our coffee smoothie. Packed with protein and high in fibre, it’s a complete, balanced breakfast in blended form. Its five ingredients will see you through the morning, no problem. There’s filling banana and oats for slow-release fuel, and caffeine to give you a jump-start on those mornings that feel like they might tip into a duvet day…
There are plenty of ways to customise your smoothie so it fits your lifestyle (or what you’ve got in the cupboard). Simply use plant-based milk if you are vegan or dairy-free. Maybe you’re nutty for PB? No problem – just sub the almond butter for a big ol’ dollop of its peanut cousin. The choice is yours post blend, too. Sip through a straw or turn it into a smoothie bowl that’ll go down a treat on your Insta.
Grab and go deliciousness for days when breakfast needs to be blendable!
Coffee Banana Smoothie
- 1 banana
- 150ml milk
- 1½ heaped tbsp oats
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 shot or 100ml strongly brewed coffee
- Handful ice
Brew your coffee or make your espresso and leave to cool.
Measure out the other ingredients and add them to a blender. If you’re using brewed coffee rather than a shot of espresso, reduce the amount of milk to 100ml.
Blitz until smooth. Add a little more milk or a drop of water if it’s too thick.
Add a straw and sip away, because today’s going to be a good day!
