This post was sponsored by Nespresso but all opinions are my own.
Raise your hand if you like chocolate and coffee together. They are a match made in heaven for sure. So why not mix them together into a delicious, healthy breakfast?
I say go for it in this Coffee Banana Oat Smoothie!
This smoothie is full of good for you ingredients to get your day off to a good start. Gluten free oats and protein powder add all the protein you need to keep you full until lunch. The coffee adds caffeine to kick start your day. I love coffee and could easily have three cups per day (oh wait, I do have three cups per day).
This Coffee Banana Oat Smoothie is perfect on the go and includes everything I need for a healthy and fulfilling breakfast. I make this in less than five minutes on my way out to drive the kids to school.
Did I mention that it tastes like a rich chocolate milkshake?
This Coffee Banana Oat Smoothie is...
- gluten free
Let's talk coffee for a minute. I love my new Nespresso Maker. It brews a delicious cup of coffee every time, fresh and perfect! For this recipe, I used coffee from Gourmesso.com. It's fair trade coffee for the Nespresso Maker at the best price. They use only the highest quality coffee beans to make their coffee. Is there anything better than a fresh, hot single serve cup of coffee made at home?
Feel free to change this up to taste. Use different flavored coffees and different flavors of protein powder. Skip the banana for a thinner smoothie or use a frozen banana for an even thicker milkshake-like smoothie. Add in flax or chia seeds for a nutritional boost. Add a spoonful of almond or cashew butter if you prefer a thicker shake. I'll bet you could even sneak in some greens without anyone knowing.
So come on! Let's get your coffee and chocolate fix all in one glass!
Coffee Banana Oat Smoothie
- 1 cup fresh brewed strong coffee I used Gourmesso chilled
- 1 banana
- ½ cup gluten-free oats
- 1 scoop gluten-free chocolate protein powder
- ½ cup coconut milk or any milk
- 1 tablespoon gluten-free chocolate chips I used Enjoy Life
- one handful of ice
- gluten free chocolate syrup optional
- Put all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blitz until mixed.
- Serve immediately with a straw.
- Top with chocolate syrup and chocolate chips.
- Notes: For a thicker smoothie use a frozen banana or for a thinner smoothie use no banana.
Yum!!! This shake is totally something I would make in the morning!! All the good flavors. ...and I'm obsessed with my Nespresso machine too!! xo
I know I love mine too! I was obsessed with the Keurig now it's the Nespresso. I'm just plain obsessed with coffee I guess.

Okay - this is just brilliant, Karen. Never thought of adding coffee to a smoothie. I actually enjoy cold coffee more than hot coffee. I drink Starbucks cold coffee black in the AM - but will be adding it (and chocolate) to my next smoothie!
Glad to hear it Geraldine!
Oh all my favorite things! Bananas. Coffee. Coconut Milk. I am beginning to train for a triathlon, and this looks enticing.
Triathalon? Wow, you go girl!
Yum! I make this every day for my work breakfast! Another tip, freeze left over coffee in ice cube trays and use that rather than ice cube. 1 cup is about 6 ice cups.
Great idea Kimmi, thank you. I'll bet those are good for iced coffee too - I need that for my afternoon pick me up!
