A banana and coffee smoothie?!

Question: A banana and coffee smoothie?
You know how if Yahoo's your homepage it'll show you snippets of random news, like "Lindsey Lohan Back in Jail!" or "Cute Laughing Baby!"? There was this one about banana's being the number 1 hunger buster, and below it were recipes for bananas. One was a coffee and banana smoothie. It was I think 1 banana, 1 cup milk, 1/2 coffee, and 2 teaspoons sugar. That sounds incredibly gross to me. I love coffee and I love bananas, but they do not strike me as the kind of thing that works together in a smoothie. What's your opinion?

Bonus question: make one and tell me how it tastes. I actually would, but I'm out of bananas.


Don't be scared by the way it sounds, it's really good! In fact, Nigella has a recipe for it


* 1 peeled banana, cut into 4, from the freezer
* 2/3 cup milk
* 1 tablespoon honey
* 4 teaspoons malted chocolate drink powder (recommended: Ovaltine)
* 1 teaspoon strong coffee or 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder


Put all ingredients into a blender and whiz to mix.

Pour into a tall glass and drink before dashing out of the door.


here is one for you to try, fill a blender one third way with ice, add banana, vanilla yogurt, coffee., sugar, just subbing the milk, to the yogurt.and blend on high speed for a min. or two.and the coffee mostly gives it a kick so you don't really taste it, but it is good, i have also added, instant oatmeal, and that was really filling to get me through a work day with plenty of energy..

I agree with you it sounds gross and it would be the waste of a good banana to try it out!
