COFFEE SMOOTHIE RECIPES TO MAKE YOU A MORNING PERSON

COFFEE SMOOTHIE RECIPES TO MAKE YOU A MORNING PERSON

We all know that a healthy, filling smoothie in the morning is what keeps us energized through the day. But a delicious, aromatic coffee is what actually gets us going in the first place. So if you’re having both already, why not make a tasty concoction of the two?! You’ll definitely find it much easier to be a morning person. Plus, it’ll save you time, so you can browse through Instagram before leaving the house.

It turns out coffee does a lot more than just increase your energy levels; it’s also been scientifically proven to reduce the risks of certain cancers, diabetes, and degenerative diseases. Your morning smoothie can only get healthier with the addition of java.

Get buzzed on caffeine and stay energized with these coffee smoothie recipes! Just make sure you’re using cold coffee (or cold brew), so you don’t end up with a lukewarm smoothie. Or trying freezing your coffee in an ice cube tray the night before to avoid having to use extra ice cubes!

Try these five coffee smoothie recipes to beat the morning blues.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Coffee Smoothie

Are there any ingredients that roll off the tongue as smoothly as these three? I promise coffee goes with them just as well.

What you need:

1 frozen banana

3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (any milk works, but just to stick with the nutty theme)

1/2 cup coffee

1 tablespoon peanut butter

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

Pinch salt to taste

Honey or maple syrup to taste

Berry Medley Coffee Smoothie

Never thought berries and coffee might go together? Try it with cashew milk for a lighter, extra refreshing smoothie.

What you need:

1 cup berry medley (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.)

3/4 cup unsweetened cashew milk

1/2 cup coffee

1 scoop protein powder

Honey or maple syrup to taste

Pina Colada Coffee Smoothie

Sometimes the food you eat and drink can really take you away or allow you to reminisce. This is perfect if you’re trying to lighten the mood on a dismal day.

What you need:

1 cup pineapple chunks

3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk

1/2 cup coffee

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Honey to taste

Green Coffee Smoothie

The hype around green smoothies is all too real. Add a dose of spirulina for that extra health boost. And if you’re not a fan of that spirulina taste, you’re in luck. Coffee will mask it.

What you need:

1/2 frozen banana

1 cup baby spinach

3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup coffee

2 teaspoons spirulina

1/8 cup whole raw almonds (optional)

Honey or maple syrup to taste

Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Smoothie

Sometimes you just have to embrace the cold weather and take on the fall flavours. Coffee and cinnamon already go hand-in-hand. Try making a smoothie with both!

What you need:

3/4 unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup coffee

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Maple syrup to taste
