Coffee Smoothie


So much romance and poetry comes to mind when I think of this coffee smoothie. Written words like, wake me UP before you go-go, don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo… 

Hey Hey, pretties!! High-Fives to all the Broncos fans! That was a fantastic game. I enjoyed it all, through and through. The food, especially.

P.S. Remember what I told you yesterday about Peyton not being so “hot”? Another reason to NOT listen to the InternetS. Thank goodness I don’t gamble. I’m too cheap for that.

P.P.S. I missed 99% of the commercials because that’s when I would head over to the buffet spread and fill up my plate, again and again and again. Today’s workout is going to be 6 hours long.

Also? Gaga! Did you love her, or did you LOVE her?! I sat with my mouth open. In.credible.  She’s all of that, plus a bag of chips and a diet coke, with a double combo of a whopper and a big mac.

Can I also tell you about the two most searched recipes on my blog as of this morning? Apple Chips and Green Berry Smoothie. Something tells me I wasn’t the only one hogging the buffet spread last night.

Can I also just tell you some truth? I almost always think that it’s a cop out to share a smoothie recipe. Like, seriously, you’re telling people how to throw stuff in a blender. Like, really??

BUT!  There’s always a but.

Sometimes, I feel, it is unfair NOT to share something that you know is amazing, and that your friends must also have it and would possibly benefit from it.

Currently, I’m feeling selfish because, since last June, this has been my go-to breakfast smoothie about twice a week. The other times, it’s a green smoothie or a berry smoothie. That’s my rotation. P.S. My husband does all the blending, I just tell him what to throw in there.

Plus, plus, plus! When I can eat nothing else but simple things to grab on the go, throwing a bunch of good-for-your-bod things in a blender totally works!

So anywho. This recipe makes just one coffee smoothie. My other half is not into coffee – sidenote: people that don’t drink coffee?!? are they human?! – thus I am on my own Monday mornings and Friday mornings. If y’all want more than 1 cup, double the recipe. Triple it, quadruple it. Whatever works for you. β˜• Just don’t omit any of the things in here. All the ingredients work perfectly together to make a very healthy and incredibly delicious Coffee Smoothie. I promise. β™₯

One more thing. Make the coffee the night before because you will need to pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze it before adding it to the blender the following morning. It’s my way of allowing you to hit that snooze button a few times tomorrow morning.

    I absolutely love this recipe! I needed something to get me back into smoothies, especially in the morning. In mine, I add about 1/2 TBSP of maca powder and sometimes some peppermint leaves from my herb garden. This is my favorite coffee smoothie recipe, and I share it with everyone!

    1. Kathleen Seitz

      You have the best recipes and I’ve been following you for years and pin so many, but how come when I copy a recipe it never has the picture on it like you show??
      Also leaving up that sad lady’s comment shows what a wonderful person you are and you know it takes all kinds… time {on a blog I wasn’t all that into anyway] I told the gal there was an entire part of her recipe missing as I really wanted it and thought she would be happy to have it brought to her attention. OMG I received the most filthy nasty email I could not believe it and i replied and said I am sorry for being kind and trying to help you out, please remove my name from this list and the Best of everything to you! What else can you do.

  2. Eve

    Very good! I’ve been making this for my husband and I every morning for a few weeks now. We have been changing it up day by day to meet our needs. Like adding honey flavored yogurt to ours for the probiotics and extra protein.

  3. Christina

    Not bad at all! A different flavor combination than what I’m used to but it’s really not a bad one. I love that I can have a frozen coffee drink without feeling the guilt that comes along with drinking the syrupy sugary concoctions from coffee shops. Also, I didn’t have frozen coffee but I did have cold brew so I used that and added ice. In the end, it turned out fine just thinner than your recipe. Thank you for sharing!!!

  4. Margaret

    Hijust found your recipie today πŸ™‚ I’m going out tomorrow to purchase the flaxeeds and we’re off happy bunnie may try some of the alternatives too I like the sound of frozen yoghurt… you sound an absolute gem..I’m sorry the lady was soo horrible

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi! πŸ™‚ You have to freeze it first – the ice-cubed coffee is what will give the smoothie that thicker consistency. It functions as a flavor, but it is also important for the texture of the smoothie.

  5. C. Scott

    I have been making this recipe on a regular basis since I ran across it last summer. It is sooo good! Any leftover coffee is immediately frozen so I always have a tray of frozen cubes on hand. Thanks so much.

  6. Mary

    I fucking hate you so much for using autoplay music on your site.

    You’re a shitfucking idiot if you think that’s a good idea.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      TO come to someone’s website and curse them out? Classy…
      I hate that people use ad blockers, but we all got to do what we got to do.

    2. Barb

      WOW! If you’re feeling that angry first thing in the morning you need another coffee and maybe you should visit a different site. This is the worst comment I’ve ever read on a food blog. Shame on you!!!

      “Don’t get upset with people or situations, both are POWERLESS without your reaction.”
      Have a Merry Christmas.

      1. Katerina Petrovska

        Hi Barb!!! Thank you SOOO much for posting this! β™₯ I needed to hear it. XO
        I debated whether or not to erase that comment, but I decided to keep it so that other readers can see just how hurtful and hateful some of these commenters can be. Not sure why people feel it’s okay to curse others out, especially while hiding behind a computer. I wonder if this Mary person would say the same thing to me if we were face to face. πŸ™‚
        Again, thank YOU! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

    3. Ann Marie Butler

      Wow, at first I, stereotypically, thought this comment was from a male. Not that this would have made it any more acceptable, but perhaps a tad less shocking. You really need to get a grip. God help who has the misfortune of having to live with you.

    4. kelli weiss

      am enjoying this smoothie right now: love coffee; love smoothies so am always searching for a good combo and yjis is 1 of the best so far!
      had frozen coffee, but 4got to use it, so just used 1 C, and added stevia b4 seeing the honey..DUH!
      but its delightful and will make it again, thx:): kelli

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Marica! No, it’s not gritty. Or, it shouldn’t be so long as you blend it all until smooth. I hope that helps!

  7. Andrew

    Thanks for this. I am getting married this September and I am trying to keep off the pounds to look handsome in my suit! Normally I hate bananas but in this recipe they are irreplaceable and delicious! Thanks again for posting this recipe from a friend in Montreal Canada

  8. Kat

    I don’t like bananas and definitely not in a “drink.” Can I leave it out altogether if I’m subbing chia seeds for the flax?

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Kat! I have never made it without bananas so I can’t say for certain if it will work, but I would say to go ahead and try it that way. I like the creaminess and taste that the banana adds, but since you don’t like bananas, maybe just the chia seeds alone will work out.

  9. Jessica

    I read this and immediately made it! I used a frozen banana because that was all we had πŸ™‚ I hate milk, so I used my favorite creamer (cinnamon creme! yum!!) and also some powdered peanut butter. It was sooooo good!!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Carol! I haven’t tried making it that way so I can’t say for certain, but it should work. The chia seeds will definitely thicken it up.

  10. Ann

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! The only thing I added for a little extra staying power was a tablespoon of protein powder and a tiny dash of cardamom (only because it was already in my spice cabinet and I wanted to use it. I wouldn’t buy it otherwise as it is expensive.) It has become a regular in my morning routine.

  11. Katy

    Could I use frozen banana in place of the frozen coffee cubes, and then just use chilled coffee? My other half is an ice cube tray snob and I’m not sure I could steal away a few spots in the tray to freeze the coffee!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hmmm… possibly!! I haven’t tried making it that way, but I don’t see why not. If you try making it that way, will you please let me know how it went and if you liked it? πŸ˜€

      1. Katy

        Thanks for the response! I tried making it this morning with frozen banana and chilled coffee, and it didn’t turn out as thick and frothy as yours looks in the photos, but the flavor was still delicious! Frozen bananas make smoothies delightfully creamy. I might try reducing the amount of almond milk and see if it comes out a little thicker that way. πŸ™‚

        1. Katerina Petrovska

          Hi Katy!! Swear, I thought about you and trying this method earlier today! haha πŸ˜€ The ice is what helps a smoothie get that thick and frothy texture so yeah, you’re definitely right about that. I’d play around and add ice cubes to it instead of reducing the liquid. See how that goes! πŸ˜€ Have an awesome weekend ahead!!

    2. Alice

      I made this Wigh frozen banana and chilled Coffee, I Thee that and the milk in the the freezer for hele an hour Before maling it. That plus frozen banana made it gold and creamy

  12. Wilma Flinstone

    Oh, Katerina this is so good!! I was a bit sad yesterday that it needed the coffee cubes, but coffee was made and let it cool down because I needed to try so bad. It was not the same of course. This morning, coffee was ready and I put it all together. Its delicious!!! Pinned and thank you for this recipe. It is perfect!!

  13. Libby

    Oh my gosh, I have been on smoothies every morning. Off to work with a smoothie in one hand and a large coffee in the other. I was wondering if combining them was even possible, but I left that crazy idea alone and didn’t even think to search for it. To my total amazement your recipe popped onto my feed! So excited! I’m making it tomorrow. Thank you!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Erice!!

      What you can do is freeze some vanilla yogurt – about 2/3 cup – and use that in place of a banana. Because it’s frozen, it will thicken the smoothie just as the banana does. In green smoothies, you can also use avocados in place of bananas. I wouldn’t use an avocado in this one, though… coffee and avocado in one? Nah! πŸ˜€
      I hope this helps!

        1. Katerina Petrovska

          Hi Toni! Well, I don’t think it does at all, but since you don’t like bananas, you’ll probably focus more on that banana taste… you’ll be looking for it. πŸ˜€ I say still give it a go and see if you like it. πŸ™‚

  14. brooelyn

    i make this all the time! i add a scoop of almond butter and greek yogurt for even more tastiness (and extra protein for post workout pick-me-up). Love it.

  15. Luisa

    I added all my ingredients up in the same measurements and came up with a completely different calorie count. The best I could do was 338 calories (which isn’t huge, but…). Did you use a specific brand of oats, or flaxseed? I’ve made the smoothie several times and it is tasty, so thanks for sharing it!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Luisa!! Wow… That’s a 40 calorie difference. I use
      Which calorie calculator do you go to?
      In as far as the smoothie, I use Bob’s Red Mill oats and flaxseed meal, as well as soy milk.

  16. Maryanne @ the little epicurean

    I love all the flavors going on in this coffee smoothie! I recorded the game so I could go back and watch the commercials later πŸ™‚

  17. Nancy | The Bitter Side of Sweet

    I’m not a Lady Gaga fan but I think she did a pretty solid job on the Anthem! It was really lovely!

  18. A_Boleyn

    Looks yummy though I would never have expected those ingredients (many of which I DON’T have) to go in it. Oh well, I’ll stick with the berry version. Time to buy a banana or two.
