Wake Me Up Coffee Smoothie

Sometimes coffee is enough. When I lived in Texas, I had a big ‘Merica-sized coffee pot that’d brew me a giant Hydro Flask worth of coffee that I’d sip all day. But now I live in Europe where everything is more modestly sized, including, unfortunately, the coffee. Which means now, a coffee doesn’t always cut it. And that, my friends, is why we have a coffee smoothie.

And today I’m needing this coffee smoothie. Last night, as a belated birthday gift to the tulip-man, three of us made our way an hour east to the adorable town of Tilburg to see Douwe Bob. Here in the Netherlands there’s an American Idol-esque show called “Beste Singer Songwriter”. And even though most of the show is in Dutch, the songs are often in English and I. Love. Them. Douwe Bob won the first season of the show and he’s just great, but moral of the story is…he kept us up really late and now we’re all sleepy heads.

I can’t stop sharing the recipe with everyone I come across right now. Delicious! 🙂 Annndd I’m making it tomorrow… and the next day.. and probably the next day after that. <3

    1. Sarah says:

      Hahah thanks so much, Maya! I’m so happy to hear you love it!! Putting oats in my smoothies was a serious game changer for me. Super filling and creamy, and with the caffeine boost…HEAVEN!

  13. Maria Anastasi says:

    delicious, the perfect way to start a hot day

  14. Amber says:

    This sounds delicious, but I am probably one of the only people in the world that doesn’t like bananas. 🙁 Any suggestions for a substitution?

    1. Sarah says:

      Hey Amber! The banana adds a lot of the bulk to the smoothie, so you could try subbing it with silken tofu (believe me, it’s pretty good!), Greek yogurt (perhaps freeze it into cubes and pop them in that way), or avocado. 🙂 Let me know how it goes!

    2. Shoshanna says:

      I’m with you Amber! I stay far away from bananas. Will try this with avocado. Thanks!

  15. Nigel says:

    Thanks for the recipe. American-style coffee is a bit too weak for my taste so I’ve tweaked the recipe and used Italian espresso instead.

  16. Corey says:

    Does this need to be served immediately? Does it maintain decent consistency if made the next before and refrigerated?
    Thanks!

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Corey, I haven’t tried it like this but it should keep a pretty good consistency if stored overnight 🙂 The oats will have more time to absorb moisture, so it may become thicker, in which case you can just add a splash more milk.
