3 Ingredient Smoothie

A Smoothie made with only 3 ingredients?! That’s right – just three. This is probably the quickest and easiest smoothie that I’ve made yet.

This 3 Ingredient Smoothie is made with a caffeinated beverage – coffee. You can prepare it ahead of time, to make it even quicker for a busy, rushed morning.

3 Ingredients
3 Ingredients

instructions:

  1. Make a cup of instant coffee, or do what I did, and use a French Press to make a pot
  2. Allow the coffee to cool down, until cold
  3. Peel the banana and cut into large chunks
  4. Place the banana, a heaped tablespoon of peanut butter (or other nutbutter), and the coffee into a blender
  5. Pulse
  6. Blend on high until thick and smooth (about a minute)
  7. Pour into a 300ml glass
  8. Enjoy!

Notes:

To make this healthier, use a home-made nutbutter. I used a store bought Peanut Butter, so if you do too, make sure that the ingredients are gluten-free.

Did you know that you can freeze bananas? I’m not sure how long they can safely be kept in the freezer for, but I usually keep mine in there for up to a week. To make it easier to add to smoothies and other recipes, peel the bananas before freezing (as you can see in my photo above, I didn’t do that this time), and place into a ziplock bag. Take out whenever you need them. Quick and convenient.

  1. Yuummo! Looks delish. I always have leftover coffee that I keep cold this time of year. I also have some chocolate protein powder (probably full of bad stuff) I add in. Some stores have the peanut grinder where you can grind your own peanut butter. Nuttin but nuts πŸ™‚
