I found this recipe in Light & Tasty Magazine. I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty and refreshing it is! This is a reduced-calorie recipe, but if you do not need to calorie count, then use regular milk and ice cream. You can also add more coffee granules if you like a stronger coffee flavor. I make the original recipe as a quick breakfast on hot summer days.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt (or regular vanilla ice cream)
  • 34 cup nonfat milk (or fat percentage of your choice)
  • 1 medium ripe banana, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 cup ice cube (7-8 regular size)


  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients. Cover and process for 45 to 60 seconds or until frothy.
  2. Pour into glasses; serve immediately.

This was a nice pick-me up. I used about a half cup of low fat vanilla ice cream and a spoon full of vanilla yogurt.. I'll make it again. Thanks for posting!

I'm a coffee fan so, this is my kind of smoothie! I used Dannon low carb low sugar yogurt, which I put in the freezer.
