Servings 1 serving


  • ½ cup ice cubes made from coffee
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • ½ a frozen banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein
  • 1 T almond butter
  • Handful baby spinach


  • Prepare the coffee ice cubes: Brew a cup of strong coffee and let it cool. Pour the cooled coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid.
  • Gather all the ingredients: You will need ½ cup of coffee ice cubes, 2/3 cup of whole milk, ½ a frozen banana, 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, 1 tablespoon of almond butter, and a handful of baby spinach.
  • Add the ingredients to a blender: Place the coffee ice cubes, whole milk, frozen banana, vanilla protein powder, almond butter, and baby spinach into a blender.
  • Blend until smooth: Secure the lid on the blender and blend the ingredients on high speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This should take about 1-2 minutes, depending on the power of your blender.
  • Adjust consistency if needed: If the shake is too thick, you can add a splash of additional milk and blend again until desired consistency is reached.
  • Pour and enjoy: Once the shake is smooth and creamy, pour it into a glass and savor the delicious flavors. You can garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or powdered cocoa, if desired.
