Make a rich and creamy coffee milkshake without ice cream for a delicious, nutritious, and optionally protein-rich morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up! Sugar-free, dairy-free, & adaptable plus ready in just 5 minutes!
Place the plant-based milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and hemp seeds (if using) into a blender and mix until a milky consistency forms. Add in the coffee and sliced bananas and continue mixing until smooth.
Add in the ice last, and blend on high until there are no chunks remaining. Taste for sweetness and add your favorite plant-based sweetener (if using). Pour into a glass and enjoy with a straw.
For lower-speed blenders: Use small ½-1 inch frozen banana pieces. The smaller the pieces, the easier they’ll be to blend. You can also omit the ice if preferred and/or leave the banana pieces at room temperature for 10 minutes before blending to allow them to thaw slightly.
Adjust the sweetness: Taste it after blending and add sweetener to taste.
Tweak the coffee flavor: Brew the coffee as strongly as you’d like/add more instant coffee powder to the vegan milkshake to suit your taste buds.
Adjust the consistency: If it’s too thick, add a little more plant-based milk.
