Morning (or afternoon) Frozen Coffee.

  

I used to drink coffee every day. Being a 9-5er and a waitress/bartender simultaneously tends to kill your patience and your energy. I was always the type of person to have more than one job at a time, I’m not sure why…I guess I always enjoyed my jobs, I always worked with friends, so the more the merrier eh?

My coffee phases come and go now.

I had an iced coffee the other day for the first time in a loooooong time and it really rocked my socks. I don’t do sugar in my coffee – yup, I’m the one ordering espresso or coffee black. Ten years ago I wouldn’t have believed you if you told me I was drinking coffee black. I used to love it super light with cream – still no sugar. It’s funny how tastes changes over time.

Well, this is a bit different from all those things and it’s something that I love, especially on a hot summer morning when I know I’ll be working outside or just buzzing around like a bee all day.
  

Frozen bananas lend a creaminess that works so well with cold smoothies, without having an overbearing taste of banana.

Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants and lowers blood sugars. I love sprinkling cinnamon in my black coffee too.

 

ingredients:

  • 2 frozen bananas, sliced before freezing
  • 1 c coffee, room temp or cold
  • 1/2 c milk – I use hemp milk
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1 t sweetener, if desired – you should be freezing your bananas when they are super ripe, brown and spotty so that they are sweet enough! I don’t usually add sweetener for this reason.
  • Optional – a spoonful of coconut cream for extra creaminess

Blend everything until smooth.

Enjoy!

    You must have so many bananas in your freezer. 🙂 I haven’t had coffee for years, except for the occasional iced Tchaikofsky. This sounds so good. I might try it with India Spiced Chai instead.
