How to Make a Creamy Mocha Coffee Smoothie with Banana (Easy Recipe)

Indulge in a delicious and nutritious mocha coffee smoothie that’s perfect for a quick breakfast or a post-workout treat. This smoothie combines the rich flavors of coffee and chocolate with the creamy texture of banana and a boost of protein.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee (cooled)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop protein powder (your choice of flavor)
  • 1 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp PBfit (powdered peanut butter)
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

Instructions:

Step 1: Brew and Cool the Coffee

Begin by brewing half a cup of your favorite coffee. Allow the coffee to cool completely to avoid melting the ice and affecting the smoothie’s texture. You can speed up the cooling process by placing the coffee in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes or in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

Step 2: Prepare the Banana

Take one ripe banana, peel it, and cut it into slices. Place the banana slices in a sealed plastic bag and freeze them for at least two hours, preferably overnight. The frozen banana will give your smoothie a creamy and thick consistency without needing to add ice cream or yogurt.

Step 3: Measure and Prepare Other Ingredients

Gather the rest of your ingredients: protein powder, cacao or cocoa powder, oats, vanilla extract, PBfit, chocolate chips, and ice. Measure each ingredient precisely to ensure a balanced flavor. For the protein powder, choose a flavor that complements the mocha taste, such as vanilla, chocolate, or mocha protein powder.

Step 4: Assemble Ingredients in Blender

Start by pouring the cooled coffee into the blender. Then, add the frozen banana slices, protein powder, cacao or cocoa powder, oats, vanilla extract, PBfit, chocolate chips, and ice. The order of ingredients matters to ensure a smooth blend, with liquids and soft ingredients at the bottom and harder ingredients like ice on top.

Step 5: Blend the Mixture

Secure the lid on your blender and start blending on a low setting to combine the ingredients gently. Gradually increase the speed to high and blend for about 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Pause halfway to scrape down the sides of the blender to ensure all ingredients are evenly mixed.

Step 6: Adjust Consistency

Check the consistency of your smoothie. If it’s too thick, add a splash of cold coffee or milk (dairy or non-dairy) and blend again until you reach the desired thickness. If the smoothie is too thin, add a few more ice cubes or a bit more frozen banana and blend until smooth.

Step 7: Taste and Sweeten (Optional)

Taste your smoothie and decide if it needs extra sweetness. Depending on your preference and the ripeness of your banana, you might want to add a drizzle of honey, maple syrup, or your favorite sweetener. Blend briefly to incorporate.

Step 8: Serve and Garnish

Pour the smoothie into a tall glass. For an extra touch, you can sprinkle some additional chocolate chips or a dusting of cacao powder on top for garnish. If you’re feeling indulgent, add a dollop of whipped cream or a few banana slices.
