About Breakfast Coffee Banana Smoothie

I think most people fall into one of two categories: either you’re a morning person…  or you’re not.

And that’s totally okay.

But no matter which side of the fence you find yourself on, it’s always good to know (and be able to admit) just how you deal with the dawn of a new day.

As for me, it just so happens that I’m a morning person – the jump-out-of-bed, get-ready-in-a-jiffy, motivated-to-conquer-the-world type of morning person – and when I started working from home, I thought this meant I was set. Because being my own boss? Starting work each day? That should be a breeze for someone who never needs to hit the snooze button on their alarm clock, right?

No. Not true at all.

It took me a while before I could admit that even I, she who is so sprightly in the morning that some days she even annoys herself, might actually need some structure in the early hours of the day. Because most mornings I found myself motivated to watch Netflix or play with the dogs for a few hours or read a book. All incredibly fun and satisfying things to do, for sure, but if I got my work done early enough then I’d have all afternoon for these types of things. What I really I needed was for my early hours to be productive.

So, I decided to add a new fixture to my morning routine that would give me something to look forward to. And most importantly it had to be something I wasn’t allowed to enjoy until I was sitting in front of my computer, hands on the keys, ready to do all that world conquering.

And this is where this delicious Breakfast Coffee Banana Smoothie comes in.

Back when I had a “standard” office job, I wasn’t much of a coffee drinker. I might have poured a cup of coffee if everyone else was having coffee, but otherwise, I could take it or (most likely) leave it.

However, that’s why it seemed like the perfect fit to my morning routine: to me, it was bright and shiny and new.

And delicious. Can’t forget that.

What I love most about this recipe is that it uses Folgers instant coffee, so there’s no need to brew a pot of coffee beforehand. And with the bananas and yogurt (or ice cream, if that’s more your thing) this smoothie also makes for a filling breakfast.

Plus, how easy does this look? All you need is a blender, the ingredients (especially the Instant coffee!) and your mornings will be one step closer to being complete.

    I added a scoop of unflavoured protein powder and half cup of iced water. Yummy! This is a going to be a keeper!

    • Darryl

    I’m trying to keep all dairy out of my diet so I substituted a frozen banana for the yogurt and used almond milk. It’s so good!

    • Charli

    Imma go to sub out Greek yogurt for cottage cheese for a more rich milkshake taste ! Plus more protein

    • Aastha

    Can you still use your regular coffee?

    I’ll admit given the ingredients I was hesitant. I used French vanilla coffee and so good

    • Olivia

    How will this taste if I don’t have a food processor and just mix in a blender??

    • Willow

    Can it be any instant coffee, does it have to be Folgers instant coffee? Has anyone trying brewing the instant coffee after it’s cooled?

      • Chrisy

      Hey Willow! Any instant coffee should work 😀

    • Erica

    2 tbsp sugar?? Isn’t that an awful lot? Surely there must be a healthier alternative?
    Erica x

      • Chrisy

      Hey Erica! I tend to like a decent amount of sweetness to counter the yogurt, but feel free to adjust this (or use an alternative – honey or another natural sweetener?) to your tastes!

    • Cindy Siemens

    Hi Chrisy – just wondering if I could add a scoop of Protein Powder to this and would I need to add more milk?

    • Hey Cindy! I haven’t experimented with adding protein powder, but depending on how much you add, I think the recipe should be fine without adding extra milk.

    • Carol Wehmeyer

    could you use regular coffee?

    • Hey Carol! You could substitute this for regular coffee, but the instant coffee will dissolve while the regular coffee grounds will not. It might be better to brew some coffee (let it cool) and use that instead. I haven’t tried this, but you could use about 1-2x brewed coffee (or to taste) in place of the instant coffee granules.

    Hi there!
    Okay. Alright. I had dinner like some two hours ago (it’s midnight here, India). And Was already feeling hungry (my eternal curse) that i checked the stuffs in the kitchen and Googled it. Relishing it. Though I used small yellow bananas, and it is awesome!

    Good luck and everything 🙂

    • Thanks Anand! I’m so glad you liked it 😀

    I made this today and love it! I was out of sugar (somehow) and used a dash of vanilla extract instead. It worked perfectly with plain greek yogurt!

    • Awesome! I’m so glad you liked it, and that the quick substituion worked 😀
