Best Ever Coffee Smoothie

by - 9:54 AM

I don't often blow my own mind with smoothie recipes, but I was so excited about this one I think I texted about five people and then posted about my excitement on all social media channels.

I have to give inspirational credit to Chicago coffee house Ipsento on this one. I am in love with their signature ipsento coffee - it includes an ingredient that makes you go "wait - what now?" but trust me - it MAKES the drink.

This secret ingredient is cayenne.

Cayenne coffee smoothie


I love adding cayenne to juices in the morning. It revs up your metabolism like no other, and adds a little heat to your drink. Now in coffee, I wasn't so sure. But it works. So I thought, would it work in a coffee protein smoothie? Oh yes. Yes it does.

1 banana
Coconut Almond Milk
Coffee Whey Protein (I use Tera's Whey or iced coffee from the day before)
Honey
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Shredded coconut (optional)
Ice

Steps

Combine banana, coconut milk* and shredded coconut in blender. Blend until smooth.
*If using actual coffee, add a little less milk at the beginning. I like to take whatever coffee I don't drink and save it in the fridge in a mason jar for smoothies or iced coffee the next day.

Add 2 scoops of protein powder and a pinch of cayenne. Do this to your own taste - a little goes a long way. You can see how much I added here - you just want it to have a little kick, not overwhelm the drink.

Add ice. Blend one more time. Enjoy.

FGK Tip: To measure how much ice you'll need, fill the glass you plan to use to the top with ice cubes.
