Coffee Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Coffee Banana Breakfast Smoothie

A heatwave came through Chicago this past weekend, and it was in the 40’s… so it was basically the middle of July around here. It was so nice to be able to enjoy outside, and not be wrapped in blankets inside. I mean, also that isn’t a bad position to be in either. But, with the warmer weather, it got me craving smoothies again. This past summer, I would make a berry and spinach smoothie almost every morning. I wanted to try a smoothie with coffee and have it be an “all-in-one” breakfast smoothie… and that’s exactly what this coffee banana breakfast smoothie turned out to be.

I basically made my bit of coffee an espresso shot, so this smoothie was incredibly strong… no complaints from the coffee addict there. Another life-saving and time-saving hack for these smoothies? You can use an ice cube tray, and make coffee ice cubes, and then in a zip lock baggie put in 1 banana, 1/2 cup of oats and 3-4 coffee ice cubes. Then when you’re ready to make it, put the baggie in the blender, put in 1 cup of milk, peanut butter, blend and you’ve got a smoothie. A make ahead smoothie that will make your life so much easier.

In one smoothie, you have your coffee, your fruit, whole grains and protein… it’s a killer smoothie, aaaaaaand I’m slightly addicted to it. By slightly I mean, I’m totally addicted to it. Between rushing in the mornings or even having this as an after workout smoothie- this is the bomb. Do I sound like a sales woman yet?

Well, regardless, below is the recipe so you can make this coffee banana breakfast smoothie for yourself. This recipe is just for one smoothie, and it isn’t a make ahead recipe. BUT, if you don’t have a cold brew pitcher, you can just make a small cup of coffee and either throw it in the freezer if you want to make the smoothie about 45 min after, or you can make a small cup of coffee, put it in an air tight container and put it in the fridge over night.

You can shop my cold brew pitcher here.
