  • 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.
