This was.....interesting. I used frozen yogurt to lighten it up but kept everything else the same. I keep a pitcher of cold coffee in the fridge during summer so it makes it easier when making drinks like this. It was great to not only use the excess frozen bananas I have in the fridge but it also adds more fiber/fruit in my day. I'm just not sure I like it.
So I looked at the ingredient list and then went to the kitchen...without writing down the measurements. What I made was this...just with altered proportions. I used 3/4 C ice coffee (instant dissolved in a blend of milk / vanilla soy milk instead of water...this also accounts for the added milk) frozen banana (instead of banana ice) and about 1/2 C of ice cream. Looks like I forgot the chocolate syrup. Oops. Well it tasted great! A nice way to have your morning cold coffee but get in some fruit as well!! It's easily justifiable as healthy b/c of the banana...just ignore the 1/2 C of ice cream!;-)
I personalized the recipe (seeing smoothies more as a protein shake opportunity). I used a frozen banana and omitted the ice. Half cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk half cup cold black coffee 1 scoop vanilla Whey protein powder 1 tsp. Cocoa powder 2 packets Stevia (optional tastes fine either way). Forget the ice cream and chocolate syrup. The frozen banana made it thick and creamy and adds the perfect amount of sweetness! Seriously a guilt-free "milk shake" that's GOOD for you. What could be better?!
I will make again. I used half a scoop of Chocolate protein powder and half a scoop of Vanilla protein powder instead of the ice cream and chocolate sauce. May try vanilla Greek yogurt next time to make it a bit creamier.
I used coffee ice cubes (that I make with leftover coffee) and a frozen banana. I only used 1/2 c crushed ice. I liked this. I couldn't taste the coffee much but it was creamy icy and good. Update- I made this again today and used caramel syrup instead of chocolate and it was good.
