Adding extra nutrition to your coffee banana smoothie (variations)

  • Flaxseed meal, a tablespoon of grinded flaxseeds works great in smoothies and can be a good addition to this one too.

  • Avocado, instead of bananas can be added in this coffee banana smoothie. ¼ or ½ cup of it would be sufficient.

Coffee banana smoothie ingredients

Below are ingredients you will need to make this coffee banana smoothie. You can alter it in a few ways but I would suggest you to stick to it as it has everything which gives us the result for a seriously nutritious and yummy coffee banana smoothie!

  • Espresso shot – Add a kick of caffeine and a delicious flavor of coffee to your smoothie by adding an espresso shot which has 1 tablespoon of instant coffee powder and 2 tablespoons of hot water. The brands I use are Nescafe or Davidoff, and you can use others too. Just mix in the two ingredients and your home-made espresso shot is ready!
  • Frozen banana – I love a thick, cold smoothie and frozen sliced bananas just do the trick and improves the texture of your smoothie by a million times! Just slice a big banana and put it on a plate in the freezer for about 2 hours or do it before you go to bed and they are perfect for your next morning smoothie. Also, bananas and coffee go insanely good together so that’s a bonus!
  • Milk – Now you need to add milk here. I am using low fat packed milk but feel free to use full fat milk if you wish or plant based milks like almond milk, oat milk, soy milk for that extra nutrition.
  • Vanilla extract – If you have not used vanilla extract in your smoothies, what have you even been doing? A good vanilla extract improves the flavor of this smoothie by multiple times. It adds that subtle vanilla bean flavor and helps enhance banana and coffee flavors too. But make sure to use pure and good quality vanilla extract here.
  • Cinnamon powder – I love cinnamon latte so much! That is why I thought about incorporating ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon powder in this recipe. I love how it tastes when combined with everything. If you do not like the flavor of cinnamon you can simply skip this ingredient as it just adds flavor and won’t have any effect on the texture of the smoothie.
  • Maple syrup – Banana already adds natural sweetness to this smoothie but maple syrup adds sweetness and a hint of caramel and nuttiness which I really like. So 2 tablespoon of it is added but if you do not have it you can alternate it with honey too.
  • Ice cubes – I am adding ice cubes for a thick frothy texture for this banana coffee smoothie. They do make a big difference here! If you think you like a strong taste of coffee and the quantity of espresso shot added is less, you can also add espresso ice cubes here instead of regular water based ones!
