This smoothie is made with oat milk, a banana, a shot of coffee and some oats. It’s creamy and delicious. Perfect for a quick energy hit before a gym session, to start the day or for a pick me up at any time.

Instead of spending money on pre-made cold coffee drinks from coffee shops, make your own version in 5 minutes. It still tastes great, and most likely a much healthier version too.


  • A banana
  • 2 dates (pitted)
  • 250 ml oat milk
  • A shot of espresso coffee
  • 2 ice cubes

How to Make this Coffee Smoothie:

For the shot of coffee, I use my coffee machine. I add some ground coffee and make a large espresso. You can also make with instant coffee and around 50ml of hot water, mixing until the coffee is fully dissolved. You can also use a Nespresso machine.

Make the coffee in a cup and submerge the cup in some cold water to cool the coffee down. This only take a few minutes.

While the coffee is cooling, add 250ml of oat milk, a banana, 2 pitted dates, and 2 ice cubes to a blender. Then add the coffee after it has cooled for at least 2 minutes.

Blitz everything for at least a minute, until everything his been blended into a smooth consistency, leaving a creamy coffee smoothie. Pour into a glass and enjoy.


If you are not using a high powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, you may have trouble blending the dates fully. If this happens, you can pour the smoothie slowly in to a glass, leaving behind any bits of dates in the blender. You can also substitute the dates with a tablespoon of maple syrup.

Instead of using ice cubes you can use a frozen banana for a lovely creamy texture. If you are well organised you can peel ripe bananas and put them in the freezer to prep for your next coffee and banana smoothie.
