Our Coffee Lovers Smoothie is a great way to start your day! Calcium, magnesium, iron, vitamins and plenty of fiber is just what everyone needs to give their energy a boost.
I love coffee, hot or cold, with or without cream, fancy or just plain, so mixing up a smoothie with coffee sounded like the best idea I’ve had for a long time. Especially delicious for breakfast – a real eye opener!
I have added maca powder to this smoothie to enhance the nutritional content. Maca powder, a root found in the Andes of Peru, is known to be rich in vitamins A & B as well as minerals such as calcium, magnesium and iron. It is also chock full of important fatty acids and has four times the amount of fiber as a potato. Can’t ask for much more than that! These in turn work to enhance energy levels which is just what one needs in the morning.
If you love smoothies, whether it’s for breakfast or a mid-day boost, check out our Key Lime Smoothie, Strawberry Banana Smoothie and Tropical Chia Smoothie. They’re all easy to make, nutritious and are sure to have you feeling your best.
- 1 cup strong coffee

Place all in blender and mix until smooth. If you like a thicker smoothie you can add several ice cubes to blender.
