If your breakfast usually includes coffee and a banana, why not combine the two (and more!) into this satisfying and wholesome smoothie? It’s perfect to prep the night before and grab in the morning as you’re headed out the door.
Banana Coffee Smoothie
- 3/8 cup (40g) Quaker Oats
- 6.7 ounces (200ml) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 4.2 ounces (125ml) water
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- 1 teaspoon cacao powder
- 1 banana
- 1/8 cup (15g) pecans
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If you want the drink thicker, add more oats and ice cubes.
Note: Unsweetened plain almond milk (or your preferred milk) can be substituted for the vanilla variety if you want a less sweet smoothie.
