6 AMAZING COFFEE SHAKE RECIPES TO KICK-START YOUR DAY.

Kick Start your Day with these 6 coffee smoothie recipes

If you have clicked on this article I guess you are somewhat like me - a person who needs their coffee and health kick in the morning. If so, you have come to the right place. In this article I will share with you 6 of my favorite coffee smoothie recipes. Enjoy!

A few tips before we dive in, which I find works well as a starting point....

Start with a base.

I recommend a liquid of almond or soy milk. Coconut water is alternative, but I personally don't like to use it in this type of smoothie. However, you can use whatever tickles your fancy.

Add a thickener.

Remember this is a smoothie and Its really needs to feel and taste like one.

Add Banana / avocado

Add a Sweetener:

Honey / dates / Agave Nectar / Maple Syrup

Add the coffee:

I find espresso shots work well for this (1 or 2 depending on how much you like your caffeine). If you don't have one then around 100 ml of filtered coffee is fine.

Let it cool down slightly, but as we are adding ice and other cold liquids it doesn't need to cool down to much.
