ingredients for coffee smoothie


  • Coffee – Choose your favorite morning cup of joe. Let it cool before blending so it stays nice and cold.
  • Banana – Not only do you get the great banana flavor, but this ingredient also adds to the creamy, thick texture. Be sure to use a LARGE banana. The banana is what helps to sweeten this smoothie with coffee. The riper the banana, the sweeter the fruit. Don’t be afraid to use those dark, near black bananas. They are the most sweet and delicious.
  • Almond Butter – Yum! The nutty flavor complements the coffee and banana for the best flavor. Almond butter also offers healthy fats and a punch of protein. Substitute for another nut butter like cashew or peanut butter.
  • Oats – Old fashion oats softened and expand in this smoothie recipe making it thick and filling. It helps to keep you full longer.
  • Chia Seeds – A nutritional dense seed, chia has full of omega-3, antioxidants, fiber, and minerals. They blend up into the smoothie and can be added in raw. If you prefer, you could soak the seeds first, but this isn’t necessary.
  • Honey – Just a little sweetness added.

Recipe tips

Swap out oats – Swap out the oats for another gluten-free alternative.

  • Amaranth – a naturally GF grain that is rich in minerals, highly nutritious, and high in fiber. A nutritional powerhouse ingredient that is perfect for gluten-free diets.
  • Buckwheat – Nutritionally similar to amaranth and will give you the smooth and creamy texture that this smoothie is known for.
  • Quinoa flakes – Light and airy, quinoa flakes come with all the goodness of quinoa but in a flake form.
  • Millet – A great substitute, but you will want to cook and cool before adding to the smoothie.

Freeze banana– Cold smoothies are the best smoothies, and you can easily make this one extra chilly by cutting a banana into chunks and freezing it. Do this to a whole bunch of bananas for a quick morning smoothie whenever you’re ready for one.

Add yogurt – While it’s not necessary for texture, adding yogurt offer probiotics and adds to the creaminess. This coffee protein smoothie addition won’t be as thick but you can offset this with a little more oats and chia seeds.

Make it HEALTHIER – With all the goodness that’s already in this wholesome healthy smoothie with coffee, you can take it a step further by adding in some more healthy ingredients. Try adding spinach, protein powder, ground flaxseed meal, or even frozen cauliflower.

Have Leftover Smoothie?

My favorite way to use up leftover smoothie is to turn it into a frozen treat!

Simply add something creamy to the smoothie, such as yogurt, almond milk, or coconut milk, pour into a popsicle mold, and freeze.
