Delicious Strawberry-Coffee Smoothie Recipe

Strawberry Coffee Smoothie Recipe

A few of my readers have been asking for coffee smoothie recipes. I really don’t have a lot of coffee recipes on my site, so I thought I would create some that blend my favorite fruits with everyone’s favorite “bean”.

Since I quit caffeine a while ago, I used decaf coffee for this recipe. It’s up to you if you want to add caffeinated coffee to your smoothie.

I didn’t use a lot of coffee so it’s not an overpowering flavor, which both my husband and I liked. If you want more of a coffee flavor, you can add one teaspoon of instant coffee instead of 1/2 teaspoon.

I used instant coffee because it packs the most flavor and completely dissolves when blended. Using coffee as the liquid makes this smoothie too thin, and I feel the coconut milk is an important element in the overall texture and flavor of this particular recipe.

As you drink this smoothie, you’ll first notice the strawberry and vanilla flavor, followed by a pleasant coffee taste.




Strawberry-Coffee Smoothie Recipe

  • 5 large strawberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee grounds (or more, to taste)
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds, soaked for 5 minutes
  • 1 scoop protein powder. (I use NutriBiotic Vegan Protein Powder.)
  • Vanilla from 1 vanilla bean, or use 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or you can skip vanilla and use vanilla-flavored protein powder)
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Directions: Start by adding the liquid to your blender (see my blender recommendations), followed by the rest of the ingredients. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.
