Why have coffee smoothies for weight loss?
Let’s face it: coffee makes life better! It’s great for boosting your energy levels when you need it. Studies show that caffeine can improve physical performance by up to 11%! If you’re on a restricted diet, the caffeine may help you keep going.
When you consume it in moderation, coffee can be considered a healthy food. Coffee is rich in antioxidants and low in calories. It’s also a natural diuretic and may help you get rid of toxins.
Most coffee drinks you can buy in stores are filled with sugar and not a good idea when your goal is to lose weight. Plain coffee can be boring, that’s why I’ve gathered my favorite coffee smoothie recipes to offer you a healthy alternative.
15 Coffee Smoothies That’ll Start Your Morning Right
Raise your hand if at least once a week your morning looks like this: Alarm goes off. Three snoozes go by before you’re out of bed, and suddenly you’re running around your house/condo/apartment, pants in one hand and breakfast bar in the other.
Yep, us too. Despite our best intentions, mornings aren’t always as smooth as we’d like.
Luckily, there’s a little trick that’ll keep you from having to chug your coffee before rushing out the door. Keep it cool by making a coffee smoothie.
We’ve gathered 25 coffee smoothie recipes with healthy ingredients that might surprise you, like mango, beets, or hemp hearts. Frozen bananas are magical, but sometimes you want to shake it up.
Or smoothie it up, in this case.
These coffee smoothies won’t magically make you a morning person, but hey, they could help. (And they’re portable too!)
1. Coconut cashew latte smoothie
Any time we can get a smoothie to taste like a milkshake without packing in the sugar, it’s a win.
This thick, creamy drink uses a small frozen banana, vanilla protein powder, cashews, shredded coconut, and coffee to mimic your favorite shake.
Play around with it — add a date or two, a tablespoon of nut butter, or a few shakes of cinnamon.
2. Peanut butter espresso smoothie
Reese’s for breakfast? Don’t mind if we do. OK, it’s not exactly the same, but it does taste pretty darn good.
The key here is espresso powder, but if you’re in a pinch, you could always swap in a shot of actual espresso or half a cup of coffee.
3. Salted caramel mocha smoothie
Salted caramel is always a good start, isn’t it? This smoothie has a sneaky secret. Instead of caramel sauce, the recipe uses dates, vanilla extract, and almond milk to get a yummy caramel-frappe taste.
4. Peppermint mocha smoothie
Peppermint lattes are all the rage in winter, but there’s no reason you can’t re-create the minty flavor year-round.
Just add a little peppermint extract to coffee, banana, almond milk, and cocoa powder and you’ve got yourself a peppermint mocha.
If you’re feeling fancy, add a few fresh mint leaves on top.
5. Iced coffee protein smoothie
You’ll need some overnight prep for this one, but trust us when we say it’s worth it.
Fill a plastic ice cube tray with strong, cold coffee. Pop a couple of coffee ice cubes in the blender with Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and hemp seeds for a protein-rich smoothie that’ll keep you full until lunch.
6. Coffee and oat smoothie
Coffee, oatmeal, and a smoothie all in one? Yup. Blending in rolled oats thickens this naturally sweet smoothie.
You can even throw a handful of frozen cauliflower to the mix for extra bulk. Yes, really!
7. Chocolate chia coffee smoothie
This smoothie almost tastes like a java chip Frappuccino. Remember those, your first foray into drinking “coffee”?
Thankfully, this one actually has caffeine. And instead of syrup, it’s sweetened with vanilla extract, dates, and cacao, which gives it the chocolaty flavor and color you want.
8. Raspberry coffee smoothie
Raspberries make this smoothie seem so special that you’d never know the coffee’s made from instant. Keep a bag of berries in the freezer so you’re ready to whip this up.
9. Cold brew mocha smoothie
Make or buy cold brew for a more mellow smoothie, enriched here in a high speed blender with frozen cubes of coconut, which creates one of the creamiest textures we’ve tasted.
We love to add seasonal fruit like strawberries or avocado or sneak in some frozen cauliflower rice.
10. Pumpkin coffee smoothie
Canned pumpkin or frozen cubes will work in this fall-flavored smoothie, which gets a boost from protein powder. And yes, it’s got pumpkin pie spice in it.
11. Coffee smoothie with hemp hearts
Hemp adds a nutrient boost to this tasty, banana-free smoothie. You can also throw in some baby spinach. Actually, you can toss spinach into almost any smoothie.
12. Coffee avocado smoothie
Avocado has the most amazing ability to ease into a recipe, adding satisfying richness and creamy texture yet letting other flavors sing.
This recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk, which we readily admit is luscious (love it in Vietnamese and Thai coffee). But if we’re making this on a regular basis, we’ll swap in almond or coconut milk to keep our sugar intake lower.
13. Hidden veggie coffee smoothie
Remember when we shocked you with the idea of cauliflower in your coffee smoothie? Here’s how to do it. Frozen cauliflower rice makes it easy. Dates, walnuts, and coffee make it taste gooood.
14. Mocha beet smoothie
Beets bring a sweet earthy flavor and crimson hue to this beauty. (Serve it in a clear glass to best appreciate the color.) We’d swap 1 tablespoon of cocoa for a tablespoon of instant espresso to give it a java jump.
15. Mango coffee smoothie
We admit we wouldn’t have come up with this flavor combo, but it’s delish! Feel free to swap in your milk of choice for the cow kind. Instant espresso is your friend here.
Coffee smoothies are an awesome way to start the day if you’re short on time and still want a nutritious breakfast. All it takes is a few frozen ingredients and a high speed blender. And you can take that smoothie to go.
These coffee smoothie recipes show you how to use a range of healthy ingredients like fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds to make creamy smoothies that’ll keep your mornings calm and cool.
Creamy Coffee & Banana Smoothie
This Creamy Coffee & Banana Smoothie is the perfect pick me up to start your morning. It’s deliciously smooth and creamy thanks to banana and a sneaky vegetable that you would never guess was inside! With a start to finish prep time of under 5 minutes it’s a great way to get your morning off to a healthy start. This smoothie is Paleo, Vegan, Dairy Free, Grain Free, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free and Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal.
My morning routine usually consists of coffee followed by a smoothie with some sort of hidden vegetable, so it was only a matter of time before I combined them into one. Although frappuccinos and other iced coffee drinks are delicious, they are usually chock full of cream and sugar. In this lightened up version, a frozen banana and frozen cauliflower create a creamy thick and slightly sweet base that you would swear was made with ice cream. While adding frozen cauliflower to a smoothie sounds strange, I can promise that it is completely undetectable in both taste and smell.
With a start to finish time of less than 5 minutes, this coffee smoothie is a great addition to your morning routine, or to have as a mid afternoon pick me up. It will last for 2 days in the fridge, or alternatively you can freeze half to enjoy later on.
The ingredients you will need for this coffee smoothie:
This is a list of all of the ingredients and substitutions that you can use to make the smoothie. Stick with the quantities listed in the recipe, but switch up the ingredients depending on what you have on hand.
Frozen Banana: Frozen banana is my go to ingredient for almost all smoothies. It helps to thicken smoothies as well as adding natural sweetness. I find it easiest to freeze bananas whole with the peel still on, right before using run them under hot water for 5 seconds and then twist the peel off with your hands. It’s fast and easy and there is no need to use bags/wrapping to store them in the freezer.
Frozen Cauliflower: You can use frozen cauliflower florets or frozen cauliflower rice. It will help to thicken the smoothie and keep it icy while sneaking in some extra veggies.
Almond Butter: I prefer all natural unsweetened nut butter. I used almond butter because that’s what I had on hand, but hazelnut butter, peanut butter or cashew butter would all work too!
Unsweetened Almond Milk: You can use any milk alternative of choice. I like using almond milk because of its mild taste and lightness. Coconut milk will give the smoothie a rich flavour and thick (even creamier) consistency.
Dates: Dates or honey add a bit of extra sweetness to the smoothie. If you are trying to cut back on sugar you can leave this out, the banana also helps to sweeten it.
Coffee: Chilled coffee adds the perfect kick of flavour. You can use brewed coffee or a shot of espresso and caffeinated or decaffeinated both work.
What else can I add in?
Collagen or Protein Powder: Feel free to add in a scoop of Collagen (such as Vital Proteins) or Protein Powder
Cacao Powder: For those not following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, add in a 1 tbsp of cacao powder for a chocolatey kick.
Coconut Cream: This will make it incredibly rich and thick, like ice cream!
Vanilla Extract: Adds an extra dimension of flavour
Flaxseed or Chia Seed: Although not Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal blending in a tablespoon of one, or both, of these seeds will add fiber
