Banana Iced Coffee Smoothie Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good cup of joe? I actually just started drinking coffee about a year and a half ago because of my workplace’s office culture. Coffee was a big deal there. Luckily for me, I’m not addicted to it and don’t need it every day, but I do enjoy having it a couple days a week.

I had a little bit of a hard time following exactly what was in it, but Juli made another story and explained how you could make something similar at home. I loved the idea of a coffee smoothie, so here’s my take on Juli’s homemade banana frappuccino:

That’s all there is to it! I love both the layer of froth at the top and the hint of banana with my favorite coffee blend (french roast). Also, did anyone realize that there’s no added sugar up in here?! I’d love for you to give this smoothie a try.
