Banana Latte Smoothie


Here's a recipe for smoothie lovers & coffee lovers.
It's a great healthy breakfast by itself when you're pressed for time, serves as the perfect morning energizer or can be had just any time of the day.

Ingredients:
2 bananas
1 cup coffee (I made it by boiling a cup of milk & adding 1/2 - 1 1/2 tsp coffee powder to it & chilling it well before making the smoothie but do adjust according to your taste.)
1 cup cold milk(this is in addition to the milk used to make the coffee)
2 Tbsp yogurt
3-4 drops vanilla essence
Sugar as needed

Method:
Combine the ingredients & blend until smooth.
Couldn't get any simpler than that now, could it?

This makes 2 servings.

That's a very unusual combination.... how well do the bananas and coffee go together? I'm still trying to accept this combination I guess... :)

TBC said...

Asha, thank you :-)

Seec, do try it, it was good!


Roopa, thanks for visiting!

Laavanya,
They go together pretty well. Just don't add too much coffee powder while making the latte. Mine was a little bitter beacause I added 2 tsp . I then changed it in the recipe to 1 1/2 tsp. You could probably use just 1 tsp.

TBC said...

Anita, you are really observant!
I borrowed the Harry Potters from my hubby for this pic. Boy, did he make a fuss or what!. He was scared that I would spill the smoothie over his precious books!Bah!Grrrrr!

TBC said...

Zlamushka,
Welcome to my blog!
Yeah, I came up with it. I had 2 bananas begging to be used!
Do try it . You might want to adjust the amount of coffee in the latte though.

TBC said...

Bee,
Do try it out. My smooothie was just a tad bitter.I added too much coffee powder( and updated my post )as you can probably tell by the color.

Kajal said...

TBC said...

Kajal,
