Vegan Banana, Almond Butter, and Cold-Brew Smoothie

Start your day off right with a Cold Brew-Banana Smoothie, a refreshing and energizing drink that combines the rich flavor of cold brew coffee with the natural sweetness of ripe bananas. 

This smoothie is not only delicious but also nutritious, providing a boost of caffeine from the cold brew and a dose of potassium and fiber from the bananas. 

Whether you need a quick breakfast on the go or a mid-morning pick-me-up, this smoothie is sure to become a favorite in your morning routine. 

Ingredients: – 1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced – 1 cup cold brew coffee, chilled – 1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy) – 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional) – 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1/2 cup ice cube – Optional add-ins: protein powder, chia seeds, flaxseeds, cocoa powder

 Prepare the Cold Brew Coffee: If you don't already have cold brew coffee on hand, prepare it the night before by combining coarsely ground coffee beans with cold water in a large jar or pitcher. Let it steep in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 12 hours). Strain the coffee through a fine-mesh sieve or a coffee filter to remove the grounds, and your cold brew coffee is ready to use.

1Gather Your Ingredients: Peel and slice the ripe banana. Measure out the cold brew coffee, milk, honey or maple syrup (if using), vanilla extract, and ice cubes. Having everything ready will make the blending process smooth and efficient.

 Blend the Ingredients: In a blender, combine the sliced banana, cold brew coffee, milk, honey or maple syrup (if using), vanilla extract, and ice cubes. If you prefer a thicker smoothie, you can add fewer ice cubes initially and adjust to your desired consistency later.

 Customize Your Smoothie: This is where you can get creative! Depending on your preferences and nutritional needs, you can add optional add-ins such as protein powder for an extra protein boost, chia seeds or flaxseeds for added fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, or cocoa powder for a hint of chocolate flavor. Feel free to experiment with different combinations to suit your taste.

 Blend Until Smooth: Secure the lid on the blender and blend the ingredients until smooth and creamy. If the smoothie is too thick, you can add more cold brew coffee or milk to reach your desired consistency. Conversely, if it's too thin, you can add more ice cubes or frozen banana slices to thicken it up.

Serve and Enjoy: Pour the Cold Brew-Banana Smoothie into a glass and garnish with a slice of banana or a sprinkle of cocoa powder if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy the refreshing and invigorating flavors of this delightful smoothie.
