What you need to make a Coffee Breakfast Smoothie

Cold brew coffee

What makes this Coffee Breakfast Smoothie so special is using cold brew coffee. I used STōK™ Cold Brew Coffee, Black Chocolate, which is delicious.

I found their Black Chocolate brew to be amazing! It’s hard to believe that a one cup serving has only 45 calories.

Almond milk

To make this easy coffee smoothie recipe dairy free, I used almond milk. This is my son’s preferred smart swap for milk in shakes, so we always have it in our refrigerator.


Finally, to add a little fruit and fiber to my easy coffee smoothie, I added some frozen raspberries and cherries to my easy coffee smoothie recipe.

Make coffee ice cubes

To make this recipe super convenient – and easy when you’re half awake in the morning – I made cold brew coffee and fruit ice cubes ahead of time.

See the recipe below how do this.

By making the fruit filled coffee ice cubes ahead of time, all you have to do in the morning is add the almond milk to a handful of ice cubes.

Then process the breakfast drink in your blender.

Voila, you have a coffee breakfast smoothie!

What’s the right blender for making a cold brew coffee smoothie?

If you love making this cold brew coffee smoothie with fruit filled ice cubes, you should look into investing in a high speed blender.

I love my Blendtec Classic Blender. It crushes ice and makes smoothies like a champ.

After using it for four years, my WildSide+ jar started leaking at the bottom. Ugh, what to do?

I called Blendtec and they replaced it for FREE. Love that!

Tips for making healthy coffee smoothie

Lowering the calories

If you want to lower the sugar content and calories, you can use unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Both varieties only have 30 calories per cup.

You could also use an unsweetened cold brew coffee, too. There are several brands on the market that are unsweetened.

Then add some monk fruit powder, Swerve Sweetener, or a no-calorie coffee syrup.

Use different fruit

You can use other frozen berries in your healthy coffee smoothie, like blueberries and boysenberries.

Or try some sliced or diced strawberries.

Boost the protein with Orgain Protein Powder

Want more protein in your coffee breakfast smoothie? Add non-dairy based protein powder or pasteurized egg whites.

I like Orgain Organic Protein Powder since it’s made from plant-based proteins like brown rice, hemp, chia, and pea. Orgain is made from organic plant sources and gluten free.

There’s no dairy, soy, or lactose in Orgain products. It’s non-GMO and vegan.

Orgain Organic Protein Powder is smooth, not at all gritty, and has a delicious flavor that both my kids and I like. My son uses it everyday in his oatmeal.

You won’t have to add any extra sweetener to your coffee smoothie recipe, because Orgain is sweetened with stevia and monkfruit.

Best of all, 2 scoops of Orgain Powder has 21 grams of protein and 5 grams of organic fiber!
