Variations Ideas

This best coffee smoothie can be made with a variety of ingredients.

  • Milk – Feel free to change the milk to a dairy-free option, plant-base milk or what fits into your diet. You can make it with oat milk, coconut milk, and almond milk as well.
  • Greek Yogurt – If you do not have an protein powder, feel free to substitute with Greek Yogurt. It still has protein to keep this smoothie high in protein.
  • Sweetener – To add a hint of sweetness to this smoothie, add in a tablespoon of maple syrup, honey, or a sweetener of your choice.
  • Healthy Fats – This smoothie is delicious with added healthy ingredients. Add in a tablespoon of medjool dates, collagen peptides, chia seeds, hemp seeds or flaxseed meal.
  • Other Additions – I love healthy smoothie recipes because I can make them in many different ways. Feel free to add in cocoa powder for a chocolate taste. Peanut butter, nut butter, or almond butter also make a great addition.
  • Coffee – You can make this smoothie with espresso powder, caffeine coffee or decaf coffee.
  • Vanilla Extract – Feel free to add in a teaspoon of vanilla extract or other flavorful extracts.

Step 4 – Blend until smooth and creamy, ensuring that all the ingredients are well combined. If it’s too thick, you can add a little more milk to reach your desired consistency. Serve and Enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Cold Brew – You can also use cold brew coffee for a stronger flavor. The coffee should be cooled to prevent the protein powder from clumping due to heat.
  • Frozen Banana – A frozen banana will give the smoothie a creamy, thick texture and a cold temperature without the need for additional ice, which can dilute the flavor.
  • High-Speed Blender – For the best texture, make sure to use a high speed blender. We recommend this Vitamix Blender for best results.
