Coffee Smoothie

This recipe was inspired by my quick breakfast routine and my quest to find the perfect-pick me-up without added sugar or empty calories.

Ingredients

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 6 oz. STōK™ Cold Brew Coffee
  • 6 oz. Silk® Almond Milk
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds, soaked (only add this if you are using a high powered blender)

Instructions

  1. Add banana to blender. The more ripe your banana, the sweeter your smoothie will turn out. Just like when you’re making banana bread. Don’t be afraid of the dark spots.
  2. Add 6 ounces of strong black coffee. We used STōK™ Cold Brew Coffee, unsweetened.
  3. Add 6 ounces of almond milk. We used Silk® Almond Milk, vanilla unsweetened.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. They’re best if soaked overnight first. If you do not own a high powered blender, you’ll want to skip this step. Gritty coffee is no fun. Don’t worry, it’s still super delicious without the chia!
  5. Blend until smooth. If you’re using chia seeds, you’ll want to scrape the sides a few times to make sure everything is well blended.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

Optional add-ins:

  • peanut butter or peanut butter powder
  • cocoa powder
  • cinnamon
