Health Benefits

Bananas
Bananas

BananasBananas are very healthy, readily available, and one of the least expensive fruits you can buy. They have relatively few calories, are rich in nutrients such as vitamin C and potassium, are full of potent antioxidants including flavonoids and animes, and are high in dietary fiber. Studies have shown that bananas can improve insulin sensitivity and may improve kidney health.

Coffee

Coffee has also been shown to reduce the risk of developing neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Almond Milk
Almond Milk

It has a surprisingly diverse set of nutrients, including significant amounts of vitamin D, vitamin E, and calcium. Almond milk is also a heart-healthy beverage for those interested in lowering their cholesterol.

Vanilla Extract

Equipment Needed

NutriBullet Smoothie Making Tools

A standard blender is all that is required to make these NutriBullet smoothies. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using the truly amazing personal NutriBullet Ultra as it is super-quick to set up and very easy to clean.

If you are making them for more than one person, we recommend the higher-end full-sized NutriBullet Smart Touch that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


How To Make This Smoothie

The NutriBullet Banana Coffee smoothie is very easy to make:

  • Step 1: Place banana, coffee, almond milk, vanilla extract, and ice into a blender and secure the lid.
  • Step 2: Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
  • Step 3: Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  • Step 4: Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Recipe Tips And Substitutions

For ease of use, we recommend peeling and slicing a number of bananas, putting them in a freezer bag, and storing them in your freezer for quick access.

If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.

Coconut milk or soy milk can be substituted for the almond milk and still keep this delicious smoothie dairy-free.

Smoothie Frequently Asked Questions

Do bananas and coffee go together?

Yes. Bananas are an excellent addition to coffee drinks, naturally sweetening the coffee’s inherent bitterness while toning down any harsh acidity. Bananas also provide a creamy base, contrasting nicely with coffee’s gritty and watery suspension.

Can you put coffee grounds in a smoothie?

Yes. Although this recipe does not call for coffee grounds in the smoothie itself, many recipes have you toss them right in. Just make sure to finely grind your beans so the result isn’t too gritty and always start off with less than the recipe calls for so you won’t be surprised.

Do bananas cause belly fat?

No. Although bananas are fairly high in calories, they are an excellent fruit when striving for a flat belly. In addition to being loaded with healthy nutrients, they contain bulk indigestible fibers that help curb appetite and inhibit your body’s ability to absorb carbohydrates.
