Coffee Breakfast Smoothie

Creamy and irresistibly delicious, energizing Coffee Breakfast Smoothie full of dark chocolate and coffee flavors. This smoothie is full of nutrients – fibers and plant-based proteins. The perfect meal to start the day. 

There’s not much to say here. My love for smoothies has been well known for quite some time now. Also, I’m a big fan of coffee … A HUGE one!  But I had to stop drinking coffee a while ago… bad for my tummy. Sad, yes 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 that I can’t make a beautiful creamy smoothie for my guests. Right?!

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…

  1. This smoothie looks so incredibly creamy and delicious! Wishing I was drinking this for breakfast! 🙂

  2. I only drink coffee in my smoothie so I’m definitely going to make this one. Sounds so delicious and looks so creamy. My kinda drink.

  3. Natalie, this smoothie looks amazing! I love all the healthy ingredients you used, too.

  4. Well doesn’t this sound totally delicious. We love smoothies…especially for lunch. Love anything with coffee. I might just have to give this a try.

  5. Oh my – yum! I am addicted to coffee and am always trying to reign back in my intake but I could easily replace one of my morning americanos with this wonderful smoothie. I’d feel much better about the caffeine with all the extra goodies in here 😀

  6. This sounds like the perfect breakfast smoothie. It has everything in it I love. Frozen bananas for natural sweetness is perfect and of course the cocoa for the chocolate flavor. Will definitely be trying this one 🙂

  7. I’ve never hopped on the smoothie bandwagon, but if I ever did, you can bet your last dime that I’d want my smoothie to be coffee flavoured. Seriously, Natalie, you might have just convinced me to dive into the popular world of smoothies.

  8. This has my name written on it. I don’t normally substitute smoothies for food but I could use this for dessert. Or I could make this as a perfect afternoon pick me up. YUM! Thanks for the idea 🙂

  9. This coffee breakfast smoothie is calling my name, it has all the favorite ingredients, especially coffee, oats, chia. you name it.

  10. Coffee breakfast smoothies are the BEST! It’s a one stop shop for caffeine and breakfast. Love it!

  11. Now this coffee breakfast smoothie is how I want to begin my day! Love that it’s refined sugar-free too and I am intrigued by the taste of the date syrup! Have to find that and try it.

  12. Now this is one smoothie I wouldnt mind having everyday 😉 I absolutely love the pictures, they are literally making me drool.

  13. I had just commented on someones post about how much I ignored my breakfast which happens to be the most important meal of the day. I only drink coffee in the mornings and carry out with it most of the days. This smoothie would fit my needs perfectly as it has the coffee and also all the other breakfast ingredients. The smoothie looks great and I love the color of it.

  14. Wonderful way to start the day or end a meal. I am a coffee lover so this is right up my ally =)

  15. OMG, I am IN love. This coffee smoothie is right up my alley. I’m not even sure which element I’m in love with first. I cannot wait to make this!

  16. It’s hard to believe something so decadent looking is good for you. I am love that it contains my two favorite things: coffee and chocolate!

  17. I don’t drink coffee either, but gosh this looks scrumptious and I love the things you added to the smoothie! And it definitely would be perfect for guests!

  18. I wish I was drinking this instead of tea right now. I have a love/hate relationship with almond milk so maybe this will be enough of a reason to pull me over to the dark side and fully commit. 🙂

  19. Oh, wow! As a coffee and smoothie lover myself, I’m over the moon to find this! Unfortunately I just made my morning smoothie, but this is on the menu for tomorrow! Love it!

  20. What a great way to start the day. I usually stick to fruit smoothies but this looks like a nice change of pace for breakfast. Love the addition of oats and chia to give it a boost of healthy sustenance. Delish!

  21. I love coffee and so I can tell you this is definitely going to happen! Such a delicious way to start the day!

  22. Growing up in Jacksonville, I was also greeted with the smell of freshly brewed coffee as we have the Maxwell Hosue factory downtown. I used to smell it every morning on the way to school and then when I worked downtown as an adult. I am not a big coffee drinker (has to have lots of cream and sugar) but this smoothie is right up my alley! I love the healthy oats and chia seeds in it too!!

  23. Oh man, that looks decadent and delicious! Like I would be eating dessert at breakfast time. I’m ALL FOR IT!

  24. Wow, this smoothie seems incredible ! I need to try it ! Thanks a lot for the idea, the recipe, and the mouth-watering pictures !

  25. i love the idea of this smoothie! frozen bananas make everything so thick and tasty.

  26. This is not paleo – oats are grains, and absolutely not allowed. Wish it was compliant – it sounds lovely.

    • Thank you for pointing that out. I’ll replace the graphic. If you omit oats, it still would be very creamy and still super tasty smoothie. My husband doesn’t like oats so I sometimes make him this smoothie without oats. 😉
