As I was sippin' my morning mega-mug a' joe (more than a cup for me, please), I remembered one of my all time favorite yum-delicious smoothies and whipped up a blender full. There’s enough here for at least 2 people, so if you are in the neighborhood, come on over (before I over do it!) … and if not, please whip up a batch at your home and share the experience with me.
A Buzz-Makin’ Banana Coffee Smoothie

Ingredients:
2 small frozen bananas (I toss over-ripe bananas into the freezer. Good to have on hand.)
1-1/2 cups no-fat or low-fat milk
1 (8oz.) container no-fat or low-fat coffee yogurt
1 buzz-worthy teaspoon instant coffee
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 packets artificial sweetener or raw sugar or brown sugar or honey or healthiest choice available (yes, I know that artificial sweetener is not good for me)
dash nutmeg
Directions:
Combine frozen bananas, milk, yogurt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a blender container. Cover and blend till smooth. To serve, pour into glasses.
If you want to get fancy, garnish with fresh banana slices and a coffee bean!
Bottoms up!

    Hi Janice, doesn’t coffee yogurt already have a lot of sugar? I always see smoothie recipes calling for vanilla yogurt, but I always think that adds a lot of sugar to my smoothie?

  • Renee Drew

    Flavored yogurts made with artificial sweetener are available; now I just have to find coffee-flavored. I could probably use vanilla yogurt and another teaspoon of the instant coffee. The second great thing about smoothies is that you can pretty much wing it on the recipe, depending on what you have on hand. The first great thing is that they are SO yummy!
