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.

This tasted great, I used rum extract instead of vanilla and really enjoy it. Thanks

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.

I realized a tad late that I was actually out of vanilla yogurt, so I threw in.. strawberry yogurt! I was hoping it'd taste okay and not turn into a big disaster, but I actually really liked it with the strawberry. I ended up using less yogurt but it all balanced out really nicely. I cheated a bit as well and threw in some ice rather than freezing the coffee, and it turned out fine. Delicious smoothie! Thanks!

The local produce cart owner and I have become friendly, so recently when he ended the week with a surplus of very ripe bananas he gave them to me. The freezer now full, I'm on the hunt for recipes to use them. While the combination was curious, I like all of the ingredients listed. The combination was really good and the twang from the yogurt turned out to be the flavor that unified the fruit and coffee. I did not use honey as my post workout shake was plenty sweet. Thanks Annacia. Made for Zaar Stars.

This was quite good. i love banana and coffee drinks. i did find that it was a bit bland and the yogurt taste came through a bit too much. Next time i may add more coffee and try a different brand of yogurt. Great for a morning drink to get started on my fruit and dairy servings.

WOW! I am shocked! I thought I would love this! It must just be me, because everyone else liked it. I made it just as the recipe states. I added some sugar and some chocolate syrup, and it still tasted weird. I just think the coffee/banana mix just doesn't work with me!

This is a lovely thick and frosty coffee drink. I actually let the coffee & banana freeze for much of the day and added frozen vanilla yogurt (I buy a few containers of yogurt and keep them in the freezer for smoothies) - but then it was too thick and I added some coffee & french vanilla creamer (maybe an additional half cup liquid all together) and then it was perfect! A lovely drink on a hot day. Thanks! ZWT 3
