Ingredients

ingredients

1 cup of frozen bananas (around 3 bananas)

1 cup of coffee — if you want to up the flavor content of your smoothie try some Banana Hazelnut. For a bolder coffee-flavored smoothie Burundi Kirimiro is a perfect complement to the bananas

1/2 cup of milk

1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

whipped cream and chocolate sauce (*optional garnish)

1 ounce of Kahlua (*optional)


Directions

1) Cut your banana into slices and place them in a sealed plastic bag. Freeze for at least 4 hours, or prepare the night before.
