    Annacia's Note:

    There are a few little preparation quirks that distinguish a good smoothie from a great one - at least in my book. For one, I like to par-freeze the fruit I'm using - not rock solid, mind you - because it helps thicken the drink; room temperature fruit only thins it. Ditto for the liquid I use, in this case coffee - usually left over from the pot I've made that morning. As prepared here, this smoothie has a mild coffee flavor, but if you want a stronger coffee kick then go ahead and use some double strength brewed coffee that has been well chilled.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3/4-1 cup fresh brewed coffee, cooled
    • 1 medium banana, peeled
    • 1 -2 tablespoon sugar (optional) or 1 -2 tablespoon honey, to taste (optional)
    • 1 1/2 cups french vanilla yogurt (low-fat or nonfat is fine)
    • 1 -2 tablespoon protein powder (or other nutritional powder) (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup (optional)
    • 1 drop vanilla extract

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Twenty to thirty minutes before you plan to mix your smoothie, put the coffee in a shallow pan and place it in the freezer, stirring once or twice after 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      It should become slushy-icy.
    3. 3
      Thinly slice the banana onto a plate and put that in the freezer as well, to chill.
    4. 4
      While you're waiting, chill the glasses you plan to use.
    5. 5
      When you're ready to proceed, combine the chilled coffee, banana, and sugar to taste in a blender.
    6. 6
      Blend just until smooth.
    7. 7
      Add the yogurt and any of the remaining ingredients you wish to use.
    8. 8
      Blend again, briefly, just until smooth. Taste, adding a little more sugar if needed. Transfer to the chilled glasses and serve.

      This is a very tasty smoothie. DH was hesitant about the combination of banana and coffee, but I assured him that you definitely are the "Queen" of Coffee"! : ) The only changes I made was to use truvia sweetner (but less than called for as my frozen bananas were very ripe and sweet), and no protein powder (wish I had had it on hand. This made a nice breakfast smoothie -- you get the best of both worlds -- breakfast and coffee.LOL Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, September, 2013.

      Uber gross. Needs about half a cup of sugar to be palatable.

      I have to say I was a little nervous making this, as coffee and banana are not - to me - a natural combo, but Annacia is the queen of coffee, so I gave it a try. I really was pleasantly surprised. I used my own kefir, strained slightly to give it a thicker consistency and some vanilla to flavor it. I have a supply of frozen banana slices in the fridge at all times for smoothies. Did not use any of the optional ingredients, although perhaps a small amount of honey would have been good. Mr. Grumpy did not care for it, but I thought it was a really nice way to start out the morning when it's 75 deg by 5AM.
