Coffee Banana Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie is for coffee lovers. It’s made with strong cold brew coffee for a caffeine kick and a frozen banana for sweetness and body. The coffee banana smoothie is finished with a spoonful of coconut butter to add richness and flavor.Cold Press Coffee Smoothie
Let’s talk about coconut butter. Coconut oil and coconut butter are not the same thing. Coconut oil is pure coconut fat, while coconut butter is made by blending the flesh of coconut—it includes coconut solids in addition to fat. When you add coconut butter to a smoothie, be sure to add it in solid form. If you add coconut butter in liquid (melted) form, it may sink to the bottom of your blender and solidify in the blades when it is added to cold liquid. (Trust me. Learn from my mistakes.)

Cold Brew Coffee-Banana Smoothie Recipe
3/4 cup cold brew coffee, chilled
1 medium frozen banana, sliced
1 tablespoon solid coconut butter (do not melt)

In a blender container combine coffee and banana; cover and blend until smooth. Add coconut butter; cover and blend until frothy. Pour into a glass.

Makes 1 smoothie (about 1 1/4 cups)

Iced Irish Coffee Drink Recipe

Cold Press Irish CoffeeIrish coffee is sweet and creamy and spiked with whiskey. It’s a darn good drink to serve at brunch when you’re looking for a bit more kick in your coffee.Irish CoffeeUsually Irish coffee is served hot, but I’m a big fan of cold brew coffee so I made an iced Irish coffee recipe. The drink is a simple mix of cold brew coffee, Irish whisky, simple syrup and slightly thickened whipping cream.

Iced Irish Coffee Recipe
4 ounces cold brew coffee, chilled
1 ounce Irish whiskey (such as Jameson)
1 ounce simple syrup
Ice cubes
Slightly thickened whipping cream (see tip)
Cocoa Powder

Add cold brew coffee, Irish whiskey and simple syrup to a mixing glass. Fill glass with ice and stir to chill the drink. Strain into a glass; discard ice. Top with slightly thickened whipping cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.

Makes 1 drink
Tips:
Make your own cold brew coffee or buy some at your local coffee shop.
-Simple syrup is 1 part granulated sugar dissolved in 1 part water. For extra flavor, try using demerara sugar.
-To get the cream to layer evenly over the coffee, beat cream with a whisk until thickened but still pourable. (You want thickened cream, not stiff whipped cream.) Layer the cream on top of the coffee drink by slowly pouring the thickened cream over the back of a spoon. You’ll want to start with 3 to 4 tablespoons liquid whipping cream per drink.Cold Brew Irish Coffee
