How to Make This Coffee Smoothie Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

This recipe makes two drinks. You can easily double or half the recipe to adjust the number of servings.

STEP ONE: Add the cold coffee, milk, frozen banana, honey, cacao powder, and ice cubes to a blender.

PRO TIP:

If you choose to use the cacao powder, just be aware that if you are caffeine sensitive, it may be better to cut the powder to 1 teaspoon or use 1 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder.

STEP TWO: Pulse a few times to get the blender blades going, then blend for 20 to 30 seconds until smooth. 

PRO TIP:

If you find your smoothie is too thick, adding a little bit more milk or coffee will help thin it out to a drinkable consistency.
