Author: 
Recipe type: smoothie
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 16oz
 
Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ C Brewed coffee (can use decaf if you don't do caffeine)*
  • 1 C full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder
  • 6 coffee ice cubes*
  • ½ banana
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 packets of Born Sweet Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener (get your free sample here!)
Instructions
  1. Place the brewed coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze. The brewed coffee will make about 8 ice cubes in a standard ice cube tray. You will only use 6 of these ice cubes. Save the rest to chill your iced coffee!
  2. Once the ice cubes are frozen, place all of the ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into two glasses and top with the shredded coconut and dark chocolate, if desired.
Notes
*The coffee ice cubes must be made ahead of time. I suggest brewing coffee and then freezing the night before you plan to make these coffee smoothies. The ice cubes listed in the recipe are made with the brewed coffee.
