I love my morning cup of coffee, and a healthy coffee smoothie is just as good! It hits the spot and is loaded with healthy ingredients to give you even more energy.

This recipe uses brewed coffee, so if you have some leftover morning coffee, you can throw it in the fridge and look forward to making this recipe as an afternoon pick-me-up.

A coffee smoothie is similar to a frappe with more nutrition and no added sugar.

Coffee Smoothie Ingredients

  • Brewed Coffee – Save your morning coffee or make an extra batch to keep in your fridge for this smoothie recipe.
  • Frozen Banana – I love adding frozen bananas to my smoothies instead of ice. They provide sweetness as well as added nutrition—like potassium and fiber.
  • Cocoa Powder – Adds a rich, chocolatey flavor to the Coffee Smoothie.
  • Vanilla Extract – Adds an aromatic quality and flavor to the smoothie.
  • Peanut Butter – Use any nut butter you prefer. I usually go for classic peanut butter!
  • Milk – I use unsweetened almond milk most of the time, but choose any dairy or plant-based milk you like.
  • Coffee Beans – An optional garnish. Bonus points if you find the chocolate-covered variety.
  • Chocolate Syrup – A completely optional “nice touch” is using a bit of chocolate syrup to garnish the inside of the glass before pouring your smoothie in. Be fancy!

How to Make a Coffee Smoothie

In your blender, combine all the ingredients—brewed coffee, frozen banana, peanut butter, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and milk.

Blend and pulse until completely smooth.

I used some chocolate syrup to garnish the inside of my glass before pouring the smoothie in. This is completely not necessary, but a fun final touch!

Serve immediately.

Tips for Making

  • If you want the coffee flavor to be the top flavor, consider subbing peanut butter for almond butter—it’s more neutral in taste with the same hearty qualities.
  • If you don’t have brewed coffee, you can substitute it with equal parts cold brew. The caffeine in brewed coffee and cold brew are pretty much the same.
  • If you are limiting caffeine, consider subbing for decaf or half-caf coffee.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use hot coffee in my blender?

Yes, you can add hot coffee to your blender, but consider blending a few additional ice cubes at the end if your smoothie isn’t as cold as you like. If you have the time to cool your coffee, this is preferred.

Can I use instant coffee?

Yes, I recommend combining your instant coffee with water and using it in the same proportions to this recipe. Instant coffee is just an alternative way to make the brewed coffee called for in this recipe.
