THE PERFECT HEALTHY SMOOTHIE

Sweet bananas paired with smooth peanut butter is a classic combo that I can’t get enough of. BUT, pair those two with iced coffee AND a scoop of protein powder, and you’ve got yourself a new favorite breakfast drink. Bring it in a to-go mug to kickstart your day in the best way possible! 

I always thought that NOTHING was going to beat my original recipe for a Coffee Smoothie. NAH.THING. Until… I put peanut butter in it… o.m.g. 😱 Trust me, friends, this little addition made a huge difference. The following morning I also added a scoop of chocolate protein powder, and things got even better. 

Smoothies are a breakfast favorite around here. Our go-to is the one and only Banana, Kiwi, and Kale Smoothie – SO amazing! – or, a bowl of this Rainbow Protein Smoothie. We all got used to just throwing a bunch of good-for-you ingredients in the Blendtec and, with just a whirl, our breakfast is done.

HOW TO MAKE A COFFEE PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

  • Start by brewing a cup of coffee before going to sleep. DO NOT drink it. 🙂 Instead, please pour it into an ice tray and place the tray in your freezer.
  • The following morning, pour out the coffee ice cubes into a blender.
  • Add a banana to the blender, as well as the peanut butter, protein powder, and milk.
  • Blend until mixture is well combined and thickened. 
  • If it’s too thick, add a bit more milk, about couple tablespoons at a time, and blend until combined.
  • If it’s too thin, add a couple of ice cubes and blend until combined.
  • Pour into glasses and serve. 

HOW TO STORE SMOOTHIES

Smoothies are the perfect meal prep – they keep in the fridge for up to 3 days – and are an easy way to keep our first meal of the day on track.

  • Store smoothies in an airtight glass container secured with a lid. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 days. 
  • Smoothies can also be frozen into popsicle molds – they are perfect on a hot summer day.

  1. Hi Katerina,

    Coffee in smoothies! Yum! I was dreaming of it and then I found your recipe. I will make it for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks! I often use my home made non diary milks for smoothies. Hemp milk is one of my favourites as it’s so easy to make and creamy.

    1. Hi!
      I almost always use “Perfect Keto Chocolate Protein Powder” or “FitMiss Delight Protein Powder”. I like Perfect Keto protein powder because it’s also a prebiotic with mct oil AND collagen protein… all in one. :-)) FitMiss Delight chocolate protein powder is also something I have on hand and I like that one because it tastes really good. 🙂

    I love adding banana and peanut butter to my Click Active Coffee Protein drink. It’s got two shots of espresso and mixes easily in water so I don’t get extra calories from milk. I’ll have to try adding a scoop of chocolate! Thank you!

    For me , freezing bananas as they over ripen is easier then freezing my
    Cold brew coffee . You can freeze them up n their peels and then run them under hot water or stick them in the microwave or leave them on the counter for five minutes ,
    Peel
    Enjoy
