As the summer is properly taking over Norway (two consecutive days of more than 20 degrees – HECK YES), I’m going harder on the cold drinks than ever. This delicious thing is a great way of getting both a refreshment and caffeine in one go.
- 1 frozen banana (preferably in bits)
- 1 cup of cold coffee
- ¼ cup of milk
How to make it
Cut up your banana (to make it easier to blend) and pop it in the freezer in a bowl or plastic bag or whatever suits your fancy.
Brew some coffee, however you like it. I just use whatever is one hand, which this time was a chocolate and orange blend. Delicious. When it’s finished brewing, just pop it in the fridge.
I like to do both these steps as soon as I get bananas in the house. This way I don’t have to worry about suddenly wanting to make one of these, and then having to wait hours for the banana to freeze and the coffee to cool. You can also prepare multiple of these at the time, and just portion them out when you want one.
When you want to make it, grab your frozen banana bits, your cold coffee and your milk, and put them in a blender. Mix until there are no more huge banana lumps (or until there are none at all, but you might be mixing for a long time).
When finished, pour into something to drink out of and grab a straw (at least that is how I prefer mine). If you choose something cute to drink it out of, there might even be cute instagram pictures in your future. Also, there will be a foam on the top (na na na na banana foam) which you will love if you love bananas.
The amounts stated in this recipe can also ba varied according to your taste. I usually put more coffee in mine because I prefer a more prominent coffee taste.
