Coffee Smoothie

I’m always thinking of ways to recreate recipes at home to save money and in many cases, calories. For a while there, the pineapple kale smoothie was my thing from Robeks, so I recreated it then I fell off the green smoothie bandwagon. This time around it’s the  Naturally Coffee smoothie. It’s a delicious creamy blend of coffee beans, nonfat yogurt, and milk. They grind up fresh coffee beans that look like little pieces of Oreo in the smoothie! I  figured the ingredients were so simple, I could totally make it at home. My results were an absolute success!

What you need:

1 cup or 2 scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt. I am a huge fan of the Healthy Choice vanilla frozen yogurt. If you use this brand, use 2 containers.
1/4 cup fresh coffee beans. Don’t use ground coffee!
1 tsp Hershey’s chocolate syrup
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk. I recommend Silk Very Vanilla soy milk
Ice (if your blender or food processor can handle it, if not just refrigerate for a little while afterwards)

 

 

What you need to do:

Simply blend all of the ingredients together until the coffee beans look like little specs. The coffee beans are meant to be a little crunchy, just not huge.

Enjoy!

  • Ok at first this didn't sound good to me but the more I think about it I think it sounds delicious.

  • You've done it, again, Dina! This drink has my name written all over it!!

    I'm running to the market tomorrow to gather up all the ingredients…and will throw it all in my NutriBullet after I put the kids down for a nap so I can enjoy this in peace and solitude. 🙂
