DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • It should become slushy-icy.
  • Thinly slice the banana onto a plate and put that in the freezer as well, to chill.
  • While you're waiting, chill the glasses you plan to use.
  • When you're ready to proceed, combine the chilled coffee, banana, and sugar to taste in a blender.
  • Blend just until smooth.
  • Add the yogurt and any of the remaining ingredients you wish to use.
  • Blend again, briefly, just until smooth. Taste, adding a little more sugar if needed. Transfer to the chilled glasses and serve.
