Coffee Smoothie Every Which Way

June 9, 2010

Coffee Smoothie

I have a stubborn brain.  My stubborn brain doesn’t like to buy things that it knows my hands can make at  home.

Wait… maybe that’s my cheap brain.  I get the two confused sometimes.

Strangely enough, my stubborn and cheap brain will easily talk me out of buying a $4 coffee drink, but they’re somehow strangely silent when it comes to the $200 pair of shoes that I “need”.  Hm…. I’ll look into that.

Coffee Smoothie

Let’s keep it simple with these coffee smoothies.  Strongly brewed coffee.  Milk.  A dash of sugar. A few tablespoons of instant vanilla pudding (to sweeten and slightly thicken).

Oh!  Ice!  We’ll need a few cups of ice… and a big fat blender.

1 cup strongly brewed coffee,  cooled

1 cup milk, cold (whole, 2 percent or skim, whatever you fancy)

2 heaping tablespoons instant vanilla pudding

1-3 teaspoons of sugar, depending on how sweet you like your coffee

2 cups of small ice cubes (feel free to add more to further thicken the smoothie)

Add all of the ingredients to the blender and blend until no ice chunks remain.  It’s not rocket science.

Bonus!

Coffee Smoothie Boosters

The Coffee Smoothie Base is all sorts of yummy on it’s own, but why not add a little something extra?

You could add:

Half a frozen banana (this will thicken the smoothie up even further)

2 Tablespoons of chocolate syrup

a dash of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon instant coffee (for super coffee flavor)

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

whipped cream on top
