There’s not much to say… my love for smoothies has been well known for quite some time now. Also, I’m a huge fan of coffee. But I had to stop drinking coffee a while ago… bad for my tummy (sad, yeah I know) The box full of fragrant ground black coffee greets me in my kitchen every morning .. and lures me. From time to time I open that box and smell the fine aroma. I recall those wonderful days when I enjoyed that beautiful bitter and fragrant drink. But just because I don’t drink coffee that doesn’t mean I can’t use coffee to flavor my cakes or smoothies, right?! That’s how I came up with this creamy deliciousness – Coffee Breakfast Smoothie.
Actually when I imagined the perfect coffee smoothie, I had my brother in my mind. I shaped this Coffee Breakfast Smoothie just for him. My brother is, what I call, a REAL coffee lover … and he’s a healthy eater too. Well almost! He’s skipping the most important meal of the day – breakfast. And I always nag about it. I keep hearing excuses that he has no time for breakfast, just a bit time to drink his morning coffee. For him, and for all alike, I created this wonderfully creamy and very nutritious breakfast smoothie.
To make this Coffee Breakfast Smoothie, as a base I used almond milk. Almond milk is low in calories, full of high-quality protein and fibers, contains no lactose, cholesterol nor saturated fat. Plus, its nutty flavor is perfect for making creamy smoothies. Almond milk has beautifully complemented the bitter taste of coffee in this smoothie. The queen of this smoothie is the coffee, of course. I suggest you use the one you usually drink and love. After all, this Coffee Breakfast Smoothie is intended primarily for morning enjoyment.
I enriched this smoothie with oats and chia seeds, the healthy fibers and plant-based proteins. I flavored smoothie with vanilla. To make this Coffee Breakfast Smoothie even more unbelievable, I added a bit of raw cocoa. Cocoa deepened the coffee flavor and turned this smoothie into chocolate flavored sensation.
The final ingredient in this smoothie is … a drumroll please… the frozen ripe banana. Banana enriched smoothie with nutrients but also gave an irresistible creamy texture. Banana is also naturally very sweet, so this smoothie contains very little added sugars – date syrup.
Ridiculously delicious whipped cream made from full-fat coconut milk is something that you can easily SKIP you’re watching for daily calorie intake. But you really don’t have to… 😉
This Coffee Breakfast Smoothie is …
- ridiculously creamy and full of coffee flavor,
- full of high-quality fibers that promote good digestion and weight loss,
- rich in plant-based proteins,

I hope your mornings will be cheerful and better after a few sips of this beautiful creamy Coffee Breakfast Smoothie. This is a HEALTHY and very nutritious meal – coffee and breakfast in one. Perfect for busy coffee lovers.
