Ultimate organic coffee smoothie that will nourish your body and taste buds (recipe)

We loved the feedback from the latest gadget for coffee lovers: a hybrid alarm clock that tells you to rise and shine by brewing a fresh cup of joe on your bedside table.

I’d like to present you with a spin on that old cup of joe, in the form of a nutrient-rich, energy-boosting coffee smoothie.

It can’t realistically serve as a wake-up call, as the thunderous blending of the ingredients (especially if you have a Vitamix!) would make for a very rude awakening.

However, it’s well worth getting up for. No need to go to Starbucks, either.

Recipe for healthy coffee smoothie:

  • 8 to 10 Coffee ice cubes. You can brew coffee ahead of time and pour it into an ice cube tray to freeze. Here’s a tip: If ever you have leftovers from the morning’s brew, pour it into open slots in the tray!
  • 1 cup almond milk.
  • ¼ ripe avocado.
  • 2 tsp raw cacao nibs, sweetened or unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon hemp protein powder
  • Pure maple syrup or maple cream as sweetener; amount based on preference! For the ratios provided, I like to use 1 tablespoon maple cream.

These ingredients are team players; they work together so well! Using the measurements above, you’ll get about a pint of smoothie.

Consider using certified organic and fair trade coffee, to encourage responsible small-scale farming and environmental sustainability.

As far as flavor variations or additions for this smoothie are concerned, go for it!

I took this recipe from the blog, Passport to a Healthy Me, but experimenting in the kitchen is always fun for me. For this coffee drink, I’m thinking to play around with vanilla or cardamom, next time I make it (tomorrow morning).
