My Coffee Love

Banana and Coffee Smoothie / Ice cream

DSC_0094

Ice version:

Refrigerated Milk (5 tbsp)
Coffee (one espresso shot / regular black coffee -2 ml / granulated coffee dissolved in H2O)
1 frozen banana (sliced)
Honey (1 tbsp)
Optional: cacao, cinnamon, nutmeg
-> MIX in blender {at least 400W} / food processor 

*tips: First add the milk then the banana and then the rest of the ingredients. Be careful not to put too much milk or coffee ‘cos you want your smoothie / ice cream to be rich and strong. If your blender blocks and doesn’t mix well, add more milk (just a bit). Mix with a spoon if necessary to help your blender.
For the honey part, put your tablespoon under hot water first and then add the honey. That way half of it doesn’t stay on your spoon and you won’t have to make a mess of yourself.

Drink immediately or put it in your freezer for 2 hours  / overnight for ice cream.  Enjoy 😉

Coffee: A hug in a mug

I know I’m obsessed with coffee. I go to bed every night knowing that when I wake up, I’ll make myself two wonderful cups of coffee. Why two? Well, the first one is to wake up. The second one is because one cup is NEVER enough!

But seriously, how can you say no to this face?

There are so many reasons why people drink coffee and there are A LOT of benefits attached to it. You can read more about it here

These are the top reasons for my caffeine addiction:

1. I love coffee, I love smelling it, drinking it, thinking about it and I expect NOTHING in return

2. When I drink too much coffee and my tummy hurts… I don’t blame it. The pain goes away in a day or two and I feel completely fine afterwards. After all, every relationship has its ups and downs…
