Coffee Smoothie Recipes

A nice ice cold coffee smoothie is the perfect morning treat on a day in the middle of the summer when it’s already getting hot by the time you get up. These coffee smoothie recipes are also perfect when you need a mid-morning or early afternoon “pick-me-up”. You can make these smoothies with either brewed and chilled coffee or instant coffee powder.

Coffee Smoothie Recipe

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons instant coffee powder
  • 1 cup milk (nonfat okay)
  • 1 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen bananas

Pour liquid ingredients into the blender first. Yogurt is a liquid ingredient. Add
bananas. Put cover on and blend until smooth.

Homemade Coffee Smoothie

Made With Brewed and Chilled Coffee

This smoothie is great when you have leftover coffee sitting around from early in the morning. You can also keep any leftover brewed coffee in the fridge in an airtight container and use it in smoothies for the next couple of days.

  • 1 1/2 cups of coffee chilled
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1 banana cut into chunks

Put everything into a blender and blend until smooth. Add more sugar if needed and enjoy right away. For a different twist on this recipe, use flavored syrup instead of sugar to sweeten the smoothie.

    coffee, non fat dairy creamer, a bit of milk, sugar substitute (try the agave nectar), a bit of cinnamon and the ice cubes. I’ve even used chai spice in place of the cinnamon at times.

    Or get decadent and use ice cream and some chocolate syrup in place of the milk, sweetener and cinnamon for a frozen mocha latte.

    instead of the banana (which i use in most smoothies) i think i would substitute ice cubes or better yet, leftover coffee that has been frozen in an ice cube tray. looking forward to trying this. sounds a lot more cost effective than those ridiculously expensive coffee frapee drinks at charbuck’s and even mcdonald’s.

    I have never made a coffee smoothie-never even thought it but I do love coffee so it will be worth a try.

    I usually make a mocha shake….chocolate ice cream, instant coffee, and some milk or heavy cream (if I am being really naughty…lol) so refreshing on a hot day and so much cheaper than going out for one.

    For LC you could sub frozen strawberries. There’s a chain of stores in Florida called Sav-a-lot that has good-sized bags of frozen strawberries for $1 or so.

    I told my husband that there were no comments and I didn’t know about the bannana.(I thought the same as wolfe above at first.) He said lets try it and then you can comment. I used about 12 tsps of sugar. This was awesome and a real “pick me up”. I heated up about 1/4 cup water and dissolved the sugar and 2 tsps of coffee. I also used more milk. :)

    Here’s how I make my coffee ‘smoothie’. More like a milk shake though. I make mine with skim milk and Sweet-n-Low or Splenda.

    Sugar-Free Frozen Cafe Mocha

    In a blender add 2 cups milk (I used skim), 1 teaspoon instant coffee granule, 2-4 (to desired sweetness) artificial sweetener packets, 1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder. Blend on medium until mixed. Turn blender speed to high and add 4-5 ice cubes (one at a time works best) and blend until ice is crushed and drink is frosty. Makes 2 large frozen coffee drinks.
