Banana Coffee Smoothie
I didn't have coffee flavored yogurt, so I stirred about 3/4 teaspoon of granulated instant coffee crystals into the milk and used vanilla yogurt instead. The smoothie needed a little more sweetness, but that was easy to remedy. I just added a little bit of honey and kept blending. If you do use instant coffee, be advised that a little goes a long way. If you use too much, you get a little bitterness. Start with just a pinch and then add more if needed once everything is blended. (This recipe was submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in February 2014.)
- 2 small frozen bananas

I once tried this with plain yogurt and a teaspoon of instant coffee. It worked!
