Coffee Walnut Smoothie


I am a true coffee lover and cannot start my day without it. But I limit myself with 1 coffee cup a day and its always instant coffee and a big no no to filter coffee. I am also much concerned about the brand and nescafe sunrise is my fav alltime. I usually dont like icecreams in my smoothies or milkshake as I feel it makes it heavy so I skipped that alone and came up with this yummy combination smoothie.

Coffee Walnut Smoothie Recipe
Ingredients:
  • Chilled Milk - 1 cup
  • Instant coffee powder - 1 tsp
  • Walnuts - 3 to 4 whole
  • Vanilla essence - just a drop (1/8 tsp)
  • Honey - 2 tsp
  • Chocolate Chips - 1 tsp
  • Vanilla icecream - a small scoop (I didnt use so I made it optional :))

Coffee Walnut Smoothie Recipe
When I saw this combination smoothie in a magazine I instantly tried and have been making it often since then. The crunchness in the walnuts and the strong flavour in the coffee powder makes it unique and rich.



Method:
  1. Add all the ingredients in a mixer and blend till smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour into individual serving glasses and sprinkle coffee powder just for garnish.
  3. Enjoy your interesting combination shake! Slurrrppppp....

My Notes:
  • The original recipe called in for vanilla icecream but I skipped it, you can add it for a more creamier and richer version.
  • I make this smoothie often as I totally am addicted to the coffee- walnut combination.
  • Dont add more than 4 walnuts as it will make the smoothie slightly bitter.

  40. This is the perfect treat for coffee lovers like me! I cannot open my eyes fully in the morning without my first cup. I take it very strong and very flavorful, no instant mix for me...freshly brewed is my cup of choice (any brand will do!) My doctor tells me to slow down with coffee since I take about 3-4 cups in a day...I can substitute 2 cups with this smoothie and I can still satisfy my cravings...Love it! Thanks again!

  46. This concoction of coffee would be a pleasure to taste after a long hard day of work. Well, if you don't have the time to make it, there's always the office coffee machines.
