🍌The Morning Jolt
I am an avid coffee drinker. However, most of the time, I only drink it in the morning. I love the flavor and the morning relaxation time that comes with that first cuppa joe.
When the weather gets hot, I like to enjoy an iced coffee. I also love smoothies in the morning, so this recipe came about because of my love of both!
What Is A Smoothie
A smoothie is a thick drink made with fruit, milk, yogurt, or ice cream. They can be also be made non-dairy by using any of the non-dairy alternatives. They can be boosted with protein by using protein powder, and sweetened naturally with honey or maple syrup.
Smoothies are not only delicious and fun, but they make a very nutrition filled meal. Often times my breakfast will consist of a big smoothie like this Banana Coffee Smoothie and it will satisfy until lunch. When I'm not sipping on a smoothie, I will enjoy a Berry Smoothie Bowl (also fun to make and eat!).
Espresso, or strong coffee
Peanut butter, I choose to use an all natural peanut butter with no sugar added.
Honey, I love this 100% pure raw unfiltered honey.
Blender, I am in love with my blender!
- Place the banana, ice, milk, coffee, peanut butter, and honey in the blender.
- Blend on high until smooth and frosty.
- Use a caramel flavored coffee for a banana caramel coffee smoothie.
- Add another level of flavor and substitute the honey with a sugar-free syrup. I love to use Jordan's Skinny Salted Caramel or Banana Flavored syrup. (Use this link to order with the code grumpyshoneybunch)
- Substitute greek yogurt or frozen yogurt for the milk. If using frozen yogurt, eliminate the ice cubes.
- Freeze the banana ahead of time and then eliminate the ice.
- Use pure maple syrup instead of honey.
- Substitute the milk with a non-dairy milk such as cashew or almond milk.
