This coffee smoothie is better than a Starbucks Frappuccino
You want to make a coffee smoothie?
Oh, heck yes!
This one is like a Frappuccino, except half the calories and price.
And, if you make it protein-style, it will keep you energized twice as long!
Here’s the drink that deserves a better name than “coffee smoothie.”
Shall we think of a new one?
Naming this coffee smoothie
I don’t want to rush into naming this coffee smoothie. (Clearly, since this recipe was originally published on the site in 2012.).
And, I don’t want to name it alone.
For now, let’s add a “The” and call it “The Coffee Smoothie.”
So elite, I know.
If you have ideas for a clever name, please share in the comments below.
Otherwise, make this asap. It’s life-changing.
Useful tips for The Coffee Smoothie
You can make this smoothie in any blender, sure. But it’s one of my many recipes created in and designed for a Vitamix and will turn out best when made in one.
Instant coffee works nicely for this. Concentrated cold brew works well, too.
This is a classic template for a protein shake. Make it egg white style by subbing out some almond milk, or use some protein powder. Of course, you can always make it virgin, as it’s described in the recipe below.
