Coffee, Cacao and Banana Shake

Happy Sunny Saturday Everybody!! 
Well I hope its sunny for you, after the storms last night its a pleasant surprise, they were insane! 

Today I have a recipe to share with you, one of my favourite ways to drink coffee at the moment due to the glorious weather I am not really keen on hot drinks during the day but favouring the iced variety especially this one for a weekend treat! If your looking for some coffee inspiration look no further because this is bloody tasty and could easily be drank as a meal or snack during the day when your looking for a healthy treat.

Coffee, Cacao and Banana Shake
(serves 2)


2 large frozen bananas
1 heaped tsp instant coffee
1/2 avocado
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp cacao
1 Tbsp maple syrup 

Add all the above ingredients to your blender and whizz it up until smooth, you can add more milk/water if the shake is too thick. I have to admit I love a really thick shake but they're not to everyones liking. 


Whats your favourite way to drink coffee?

I am still loving my blended Americano's too when I'm out and about and fancy a bought coffee 


  1. I love the recipe for that drink, but I shall find a coffee replacement as I don't drink coffee, my poison is Pepsi Max and I am limited to one tin every other day or there abouts...I know its poison, but ice cold on a hot day, I just cannot say no!
    Hope your back is feeling a little easier.

    1. I can't stand Pepsi max but I do love a freezing cold fanta on a hangover now and again! Back is starting to feel much better thank you x

  2. I can't drink anything hot at the moment I'm iced all the way! I've been loving my coconut water lattes with decaf coffee these last few days to keep me cool :-)

    1. I still haven't made a smoothie or drink with coconut water must do that!

  3. Oh wow avocado! Love this! Sounds so refreshing and nutritious. Bet I could even give it to Ben and he would enjoy it without knowing how good it was for him hehe.

    1. Definitely can't taste the avocado so safe to trial on the man! Enjoy x
