Banana Coffee Smoothie

(2 servings)

  • 2 small frozen bananas
  • 1 and 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  • 1 (8 ounce) container low-fat coffee yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg
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.

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