Caruso's Coffee Smoothie

Our favorite mommy-blog inspired Coffee Smoothie is oh-so simple and delicious. Ready in just 5 minutes and much healthier (and yummier) than those sugar-filled coffee shop drinks. Enjoy!

CARUSO'S COFFEE SMOOTHIE

Prep Time: 5 minutes 
Makes: 10-12 oz smoothie

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp ground coffee un-brewed, (not instant coffee)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1/4 cup brewed coffee, chilled
  • 1/2 frozen banana (the riper, the sweeter)*
  • Raw honey, as needed, for sweetness (and if not vegan)
  • Ice, as needed to thicken

*If you can’t have bananas (or you’re just not a fan), you can replace with frozen avocado, sweet potato, greek yogurt, oatmeal, or any other frozen fruit of your choice.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add more ice if too thin (or more milk if too thick) -- as needed.
  3. Serve immediately.

HOW TO FREEZE FOR LATER

  1. Add the ground coffee, banana, vanilla extract, and peanut butter to a sealable freezer-safe bag.
  2. Press the air out of the bag and place it in the freezer.
  3. As soon as you crave a coffee smoothie in the morning, all you have to do is to add almond milk followed by the frozen ingredients to your blender.
