Banana cappuccino

Over this now

I have been drinking protein shakes for breakfast for a while now, and I am total over boring vanilla protein shakes.

I have been struggling to eat enough over the last few weeks. I have been looking for a way to get more calories in the morning so doing something different seemed like an excellent idea.

Cold brew coffee? Yes, please.

I love coffee. Anyone who knows me how much I love coffee, anything I can add coffee to or have coffee with is good in my book. I have been known to put coffee into smoothies before now and learned a while ago that cold brew coffee is the only way to go.

When you brew coffee with hot water and let that coffee go cold it becomes bitter, believe me, I’ve drunk many cups of cold, bitter coffee across the day. I’ll drink cold, bitter coffee when running between meetings but don’t want to add that to my smoothies on purpose.

When you are using cold coffee, you should brew it cold; this means the coffee is full of flavour without the bitterness.

Banana and coffee might sound like a strange combination but trust me it works. I love to use my homemade cold brew coffee with a nice ripe banana to create a thick creamy smoothie.
