Preps like a healthy smoothie, drinks like a vegan iced coffee

Though it looks like your standard iced coffee, trust me, it’s anything but. Inspired by an iced mocha smoothie special at Plant Cafe in San Francisco, my husband set out to recreate one at home at the beginning of Covid lockdown. We have been experimenting on warm days ever since, honing in on our customized concoction (we each have our own), and I have recently landed on my absolute favorite: more iced drink than smoothie, sans the cocoa, and with a bit of added nutty/seedy goodness🙌🏼.

This vegan coffee smoothie is packed with superfoods for a slightly sweet, boldly caffeinated, addictively nutritious punch! It can even pass as a light breakfast for those who don’t go for a big meal in the a.m.

Superfood Smoothie ingredients

  • Coffee: Curious how to add caffeine to a smoothie? Simply use room temperature or cold coffee. Not only will it wake you up, coffee is considered a superfood! Not only good for mood and brain function, it is also associated with increasing metabolism, lowing your risk for type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.
  • Plant-based Milk: Unlike dairy milk, plant milk is cholesterol free without added hormones! So choose your favorite plant-based milk to make your iced coffee smoothie is even healthier!
  • Banana: Rich in solulable fiber, and high in many nutrients like potassium and magnesium, bananas help keep your heart healthy and also help in muscle recovery.
  • Dates: Loaded with antioxidants and fiber and even more potassium and magnesium than bananas, dates are an amazing superfood! Dates make a perfect natural sweetener in this healthy coffee smoothie recipe.
  • Almond Butter: Almond butter is the key ingredient to making this recipe into coffee breakfast smoothie! With plenty of protein, fat, and fiber, almonds will help keep you satiated for hours.
  • Flaxseed Meal: Among their many health beefits, flaxseeds are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, a nutrient hard to find in plant-based food. They make this vegan iced coffee into a superfood coffee drink for sure!
