One of the best things about this coffee breakfast smoothie recipe is that there are many substitutions and variations to make it work for your tastes and preferences.

If you’re looking for a healthier option, try making this smoothie with almond milk instead of skim milk. You can also swap out the Quaker Oats for rolled oats, or use a combination of both.

For those who prefer a stronger coffee flavor, use 1 cup of brewed coffee instead of ½ cup. Or, for a more caffeinated kick, use instant coffee powder. Additionally, you can switch up the type of protein powder used to vanilla or chocolate, depending on your preference.

If you’re feeling adventurous, add in some cocoa powder or peanut butter for a mocha or nutty twist. Alternatively, throw in some frozen blueberries for a blueberry coffee breakfast smoothie.

Lastly, if you don’t have a frozen banana on hand, use frozen dates or berries as a substitute to achieve the desired consistency. The possibilities are endless with this versatile recipe!

This coffee breakfast smoothie is not only delicious, but also incredibly versatile. It can be a perfect on-the-go breakfast solution or a post-workout snack. Plus it pairs well with a variety of foods.

I recommend serving this smoothie with some freshly cut fruit to add some brightness and texture to the meal. Some sliced bananas or strawberries would be perfect. You can also add some nuts and seeds on top for an extra crunch.

If you are looking for a more indulgent pairing, try it with some freshly baked pastries or croissants. The strong coffee flavor of the smoothie is a great complement to the rich, buttery taste of these treats.

For a healthier and protein-packed breakfast option, serve this smoothie with some toast topped with peanut or almond butter. You can also pair it with a bowl of Greek yogurt and granola for an added nutritional boost.

No matter how you choose to serve this coffee breakfast smoothie, it’s sure to be a hit at any brunch or breakfast table. So make yourself a good morning coffee and sip your worries away while enjoying this healthy, refreshing, and satisfying breakfast drink.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

If you’re a busy person, then you’ll love this coffee breakfast drink recipe because it’s easy to make ahead of time and store for later use.

To make-ahead, blend all the smoothie ingredients well and store it in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. I recommend using a mason jar so you can easily grab it on-the-go. You can make this recipe up to 3 days in advance!

When you’re ready to enjoy your coffee breakfast smoothie, just give it a quick shake or stir and enjoy! If it’s in the freezer, take it out about 30 minutes before you want to drink it so it has time to thaw.

To store, the blended coffee smoothie recipe will last up to 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. However, I recommend drinking it within the first 2 days for maximum freshness and taste.

If you need to reheat your smoothie, do not microwave it as that will affect its consistency. Instead, heat up some water in a pot and place your mason jar with the frozen smoothie into the hot water until it’s warm enough to your liking.

By making this caffeine-infused breakfast drink ahead of time, you can enjoy a healthy and tasty beverage anytime you want without having to make a mess in the kitchen every morning. Wake up to good morning drinks with this easy coffee breakfast drink recipe!

To achieve the perfect coffee breakfast drink recipe, it’s important to take heed of some tips. Here are some tips to ensure that you get the best possible results:

First, make sure to use ripe bananas as these will provide natural sweetness and a creamy texture. If you’re using frozen bananas, slice them beforehand to make blending easier.

Using a cold brew that is chilled will also create a smoother texture for your coffee smoothie. Alternatively, you can use strong brewed coffee and chill it in the fridge before blending it in with the other ingredients.

Another tip is to use good quality instant coffee powder or freshly ground coffee beans. The right amount of coffee will give your smoothie that pick-me-up you need in the morning, while too little or too much may affect the overall taste.

For a healthy option, consider using unsweetened almond or skim milk instead of regular milk, and add a scoop of vanilla protein powder to give your smoothie an extra boost.

Adding sweeteners such as sugar or dates may seem like a good idea, but be careful not to overdo it as they have a high calorie count. Instead, try incorporating flavors like cocoa powder or peanut butter for a richer taste.

Lastly, experiment with different substitutions and variations to find your perfect balance of flavors. Don’t be afraid to try blueberry coffee breakfast smoothies or mocha variations – the possibilities are endless!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this coffee breakfast drink is the perfect way to start your day on a healthy note. It not only gives you the caffeine boost you need, it also provides a filling and nutritious meal. With its versatility, anyone can tailor it to their liking by making substitutions and variations, and serving it with a side dish or pairing. Not to mention, it’s super easy and quick to make!

Coffee Breakfast Drink

Coffee Breakfast Drink Recipe

This is from a Quaker Oats recipe pamphlet titled Food Fiber & Fitness. It states in its introduction, "It's smooth and creamy like a shake, but weighs in at a lean 85 calories." I think the oats give it a malted quality (taste and texture) while the hint of coffee adds an adult element. I think it's a nice breakfast drink that two people on the go can easily share.
