Vegan Mocha Breakfast Smoothie

You know those people who hate drinking coffee but love coffee flavoured anythings? That’s me. I never drink the hot stuff but coffee flavoured cake or iced coffee are another story.

During the summer I suddenly decided I needed some iced coffee or mocha in my life. This recipe came about as a result of simply chucking stuff in the blender, and discovering it was actually pretty good.

And that’s really about it. Creative genius at work…

Use as little or as much coffee as you like. Whatever works for you!

And urgh, my recipe plug-in is still displaying weirdly. Sorry.

Recipe Notes

The amount of coffee and cacao is up to you, I won't judge.

The sweetness level is of course up to you as well. I use overripe bananas and Prana On protein which is quite sweet, so I don't use additional sweeteners like dates.

Blackstrappy Gingerbready Breakfasty Smoothie

blackstrap gingerbread smoothie

Maybe it’s the time of year and being in denial that my Christmas gingerbread has long vanished, but I’m all about gingerbready flavours right now. In the past I’ve made those pumpkin pie kinds of smoothies but today I wanted my regular banana breakfast smoothie with a gingerbread makeover. I’ve also been adding blackstrap molasses to my smoothies because I’m low in iron (from long before I was vegan! Gotta throw that in because you know, people blaming a vegan diet blah blah…).

For breakfast I usually have overnight oats or a smoothie with oats thrown in, so there’s a bit of a porridge element here too. And as always, I have a banana in my smoothies, either fresh or frozen.

Blackstrap molasses can taste quite strong and frankly quite urgh, but I don’t mind it in this smoothie. I also like to use a fair bit of ginger and spices. Feel free to play around with the amounts!

Want a pumpkin pie smoothie? Throw in a nice big chunk of cooked pumpkin, or use it in place of the banana.
