🍌 What You Will Need

ingredients for coffee smoothie

Cold Brew Coffee You can use instant or ground coffee for this.

Mix 1 cup of coarsely ground/instant coffee with 4 cups of water in a jar or bottle and steep – like tea – overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning, the mixture is ready to use. Make sure to strain the brewed coffee if you have used ground coffee.

Frozen Bananas – Provide creaminess and natural sweetness to the smoothie. Peel, cut, and freeze ripe bananas the night before.

Oats – Add fiber, antioxidants, and thickness and help to make the smoothie filling. You can use any type of oats – rolled, instant, or steel cut.

Peanut Butter – For protein and healthy fats, can also add a spoonful of any nut butter.

Milk – Provides healthy fats and adds creaminess and richness to the smoothie while enhancing its flavor.

Vanilla Extract, Ground Cinnamon, and Cardamom For additional flavors.

Ice (optional) – Needed if you don’t use frozen bananas.

πŸ”ͺ How To Make This Coffee Smoothie

Once you have all the ingredients gathered, add them to a high-speed blender or a juicer mixer grinder, and blend until smooth. 

It’s that easy! This recipe makes two servings, but you can easily double or triple the ingredients to make more.

If the smoothie is too thick, you can add either more coffee or milk.  If your smoothie is too thin, just add in a few ice cubes or frozen bananas, and re-blend.

πŸ“ƒ Variations & add-Ins

  • Vegan smoothie – Make this smoothie vegan easily by using plant-based milk.
  •  Smoothie without bananas – Make it without bananas by replacing bananas with fresh cream or coconut milk and adding a few ice cubes.
  •  More protein – Besides peanut butter or any nut butter, you can add a scoop of vanilla or any other protein powder.

βœ”οΈ Helpful Tips

  1. Use frozen banana as it helps to keep the smoothie cold and thick. It also reduces the need to add any other sweetener.
  2. Add more liquid (milk or cold water) if your smoothie is too thick or won’t fully blend.
  3. Start the blender on low speed, then gradually increase it to high to help blend all ingredients.
  4. If the smoothie doesn’t taste sweet enough, you can add honey or dates.
  5. If you are in a rush in the morning, prepare the ingredients the night before and keep them in the fridge. In the morning, all you have to do is blend everything and you’ll have a delicious and healthy breakfast in no time!
  6. If you have a leftover smoothie, freeze it in ice cubes and enjoy it next time.

πŸ«™ Equipment Needed

  • High-speed blender (like AGARO) – Although a regular blender works fine, a high-speed blender will save time and effort and yield a much smoother drink.

❔ Commonly Asked Questions

Can I make this smoothie ahead of time?

While it’s best to consume your smoothie immediately after preparing it to retain maximum freshness and nutrients, you can store it in the fridge for a short period. However, the texture and taste may change slightly upon refrigeration.

You can portion out the ingredients in advance and store them in containers in the fridge. When ready to enjoy, simply blend everything until smooth.

Can I Use Decaffeinated Coffee?

If you prefer to avoid caffeine, feel free to substitute regular coffee with decaffeinated coffee in this recipe for a similar taste.

How do I further thicken my smoothies?

To make thick smoothies, use frozen fruits instead of fresh ones. You can also mix in 1-2 tablespoons of chia or flax seeds, rolled oats, or a couple of tablespoons of Greek yogurt to achieve that super creamy and thick texture.
Start with less liquid, such as water, milk, or juice, and gradually add more as needed until you reach your desired consistency.
