Cafe Au Lait Green Monster

I have found the perfect combination of two of my favorite things- green monster smoothies and fun coffee drinks…the Cafe au Lait Green Monster.



If you are not familiar with green monster smoothies, they are a great tasting combination of fruits, veggies, milk, yogurt and sometimes peanut butter! The whole premise is you can get a decent amount of spinach or kale or any other green veggie of your choice and you dont even taste it! How great would it be to get your kids to drink an entire cup of spinach and they are none the wiser : )
Combine this with some a cup of Brew Over Ice French Vanilla Kcup coffee and you end up with a wonderfully delicious, decadent coffee drink. Starbucks aint got nothin on you!
Here is the secret recipe:

Café au Lait Green Monster
  • 1 C Kcup coffee, I prefer using a French Vanilla Brew Over Ice but, pick simply pick your favorite Kcup, brew it in a cup of ice and you are good to go!
  • 2 large handfuls baby spinach or Kale
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • 1 really ripe banana, frozen
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/3 C milk
Combine ingredients in your blender in this order: coffee, vanilla, spinach, ice, bananas.
Blend until nice and smooth. Pour into your favorite HUGE mug or cup- I love using the double walled insulated iced coffee type of cup so I can sip with a straw. Add ice cubes if you so desire. But wait there’s more–pour the milk over the top and mix in. You could just toss the milk in the blender with the other ingredients, but then it wouldn’t swirl with the green foam on top and look extra pretty.
There we have it, the worlds first healthy indulgent coffee drink!
