A vegan coffee smoothie
Don’t you just love the smell and taste of coffee? Hot or cold, I love it. One of my favourite drinks, before I became vegan in 2011, was an iced coffee. I have been wanting to try to make a vegan smoothie version for a while now, however I hadn’t found a recipe for it, so, I experimented a bit, and created this one.
It’s never too cold for iced coffee
The bulk of this vegan smoothie is made up of dairy free milk, coffee and a frozen banana. Certainly, there are many dairy-free milks on the market, but I suggest to start with one you love. Similarly, I know not everyone likes strong coffee, so adjust the amount of coffee to your taste.
How to make it
To make the vegan coffee smoothie thicker and creamier you can freeze your banana beforehand. To turn this into a breakfast smoothie, I added Good Life Organic coconut chips and Passion 4 Wholeness muesli. All the ingredients go into a NutriBullet, blend them together, until you are happy with the consistency, and, just like that, it’s done.
I absolutely love serving smoothies in a glass jar, with one of my reusable straws. I now have quite a collection of straw types – this one is a straight smoothie (thicker version) glass straw from Stream Straws (see post here)
3 ice cubes
1/2 cup dairy free milk of choice.
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee chilled
2 tbsp Coconut chips
1 frozen Banana
1/3 cup Muesli
3 ice cubes
