Vegan Coffee Smoothie

by Jill Dalton

Two of the many things I love in life are coffee and dessert! So here is a delicious way to combine the two for a Whole Food Plant Based, Vegan, refined sugar free, oil free and dairy free treat. We came up with this idea after falling head over heals for this smoothie at a local Plant Based restaurant, Pure Juicery. This creamy delight is sweetened only by the seriously ripe frozen bananas and will give you a nice mid afternoon energy boost.

It looks sooooo good! Any idea how many calories in a cup, or half the recipe?

Sorry, we don’t do the calorie counts with our recipes.

Can you substitute Instant Coffee as I don’t use ground coffee and also could it be used with chilled coffee for a smoothie

doug June 19, 2020 - 6:28 pm

Can you substitute instant coffee/brewed cold coffee for a more smoother drink or would you recommend ground coffee

Rob P June 29, 2020 - 3:26 pm

I would go with cold brew concentrate.

Janice Davis June 29, 2020 - 9:49 pm

My husband and I thought that this was delicious. I used light roast coffee, but the next time I will use medium roast.

Jo August 24, 2020 - 10:20 pm

I haven’t tried coffee yet, but cocoa nibs and pb powder subsitutions taste delicious.

Just a note, the directions say to bend until smooth instead of blend.

I made this recipe and i love it! I never thought to put straight up coffee beans in a smoothie. It tastes great!
