This one is for the tired parents, not vegan kids (though I bet you could make a nice chocolate version instead of coffee). Even though I feel like I have more energy than I should have, there are still times (a lot of the time) that I’m very, very, very tired. Fresh fruit smoothies help to give me energy, but I also need coffee. So for anyone looking after kids, waking up for night feeds, or who just likes/needs coffee, I’ve made this coffee banana shake. Enjoy!
You could also add some oats, seeds and/or nut butter, maybe an extra banana to make it into a pretty filling breakfast. I think it’s yummy as it is anyway, and I like to drink it with breakfast to help me get ready for the day.
1 banana (chopped and frozen)
1 tsp instant coffee
1 cup of soya milk (or other plant milk)
A shake of cinnamon
How it’s made:
Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and then serve (with ice if you like).
