Icy Coffee Smoothie
What’s in it?
Brewed, chilled coffee (I use organic/decaf), Medjool dates, hemp seeds/hearts, cashew butter, ice cubes
Where did I find it?
Why do I like it?
This one is a winner! It tastes like a blended coffee drink from a gourmet coffee house, but the ingredients are so much cleaner. Almost like an ice cream, it comes out very thick. You could use less ice, but it does melt a bit as you drink it.
I have made this for the most picky coffee drinkers and they absolutely loved it. This recipe is a must have in your repertoire! Most of the ingredients are pantry staples so it’s easy to whip one up any time.
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
Be sure to brew the coffee in advance as the coffee needs to be chilled for this to work. I make my own cashew butter in the food processor then store it in the fridge. I always have the rest of the ingredients on hand so I can make this any time.
Regarding the spinach, I have not tried it with spinach, it might turn the color slightly so proceed with caution! I do add some maca powder when I drink mine. If you like the taste of maca or take it for health reasons, it works well stirred into the drink after blending.
One batch makes a lot, so if there are any leftovers, I freeze it! Keep the leftover coffee grinds to garnish or add a bit more intense coffee flavor.
