Healthy Coffee Breakfast Smoothie

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,
  • contains NO refined sugar,
  • low-fat,
  • rich in potassium, calcium, and iron,
  • vegan and gluten-free.

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.

Enjoy! ;)

  1. Made this today, so delicious!


  2. I just finished my first one and it was super good! Definitely way more energizing than a cup of coffee. I ran out of date paste so I threw in a pitted date and it turned out great. This will be one of my go to smoothies, thanks for sharing!

  3. Do you have an idea of what to sub for the banana?
    They are one of my migraine trigger foods. So many smoothies have them and this one sounds so luscious.

    • You can substitute banana with nut butters or applesauce. Avocados can be a good substitute for bananas to create a creamy texture but since avocado isn’t sweet you may need to add some syrup to the mixture.

    They look wonderful and I think would help with my Fibro chronic fatigue. What is your charge for these recipes ? Does the newsletter contain recipes?

    • Hi Lera. Thank you so much for stopping by and your comment. I’m glad you like my coffee smoothie.

      ALL my recipes and everything on my blog is completely FREE. If you sign up to my newsletter you will receive via email a notification of new recipe when I publish it. Again, completely FREE!


  5. Swelterimg hot day and needed a caffeine hit before taking my mother in law for a day of errands. This was AMAZING! No need to ever go to Starbucks again….and this is way healthier. Substituted 3 dates for the syrup as I didn’t have the syrup. It’s a keeper. Thanks Natalie.

    • I’m soooo glad you liked it Jane. Thanky you SO MUCH! Yes, it’s so much healthier than Starbucks… and it will save you some $$$.. and some calories too hehe ;) It’s def one of my favorites.


  6. A new fav, thx! Always looking for the perfect blend of chocolate and coffee in a smoothie. Found this yesterday when I was looking for an afternoon pick me up after a long day with the littles. Made it again for my hubby after his run this morning. Don’t have date syrup, so subbed maple (probably not as healthy) and added a handful of greens.


  7. Made the smoothie this afternoon and it is okay. However it’s good to see a recipe that is vegan and gluten free. Just wish commenters would try the recipe first before gushing about it.


  8. Wow!!! Even my husband loved this. I substituted honey for the date syrup and organic milk and instant coffee (Starbucks) for the coffee and almond milk. I feel like zipping around now :)

  9. Just made this, after finding it on Pinterest. Wow, is that good. Was worried it wouldn’t make a large glassful, but it did. Had all the ingredients, just had to freeze a banana. Thanks for this recipe…never thought to make a smoothie that involved coffee. I am an avid iced coffee drinker, it does have less acidity if you steep it for 12 hours as a cold brew…maybe that would help you with the tummy issues, Natalie? And, gave a sample to the BF, he likes it, too!

    • I’m glad you like it Jeanne. Thank you so much for this lovely comment. I haven’t tried a cold brew coffee but now that you’ve mentioned, I think I heard it’s less bad for tummy. I definitely need to try it.

  10. Wonderful ..?? I will make this with banana bread so I could be weirded out some more then
