Ingredients

For the smoothie:

  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup (40 g) oats, quick or regular
  • 2 tbsp (32g) almond butter
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium-sized ripe bananas, frozen

For the dalgona coffee:

  • 2 Tbsp (12 g) instant coffee granules*
  • 2 Tbsp (24 g) granulated sugar**
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) warm or hot water

Instructions

For the smoothie:

  1. At least 3 hours before, add the milk and oats to the bowl of your blender and give them a stir to ensure that everything is well combined. Cover and place in the fridge. You can make the smoothie right away, but soaking the oats with create a smoother texture.
  2. Remove your blender bowl from the fridge and add the remaining smoothie ingredients. Blend on high until a smooth and creamy consistency is reached, adding more milk if the smoothie is too thick. Set aside and start making your dalgona coffee.

For the dalgona coffee:

  1. Add the coffee, sugar, and water to a medium-sized mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer.
  2. Using the whisk attachment, turn your stand or hand mixer to the highest setting and mix until a thick pale foam forms, about 2-3 minutes.***

To serve:

  1. Use a spoon to scoop up the foam and place it in various spots on the inside walls of your glass. Pour in the smoothie and give it a few stirs to incorporate it with the coffee. Finally, top with more foam and enjoy!

Notes

* You can use either caffeinated or decaf instant coffee/espresso. It does have to be instant, though.

** I’ve used both cane and coconut sugar and both work fine. You could use a liquid sweetener like honey, but it won’t fluff up as much of stay fluffy for as long. Stevia works as well, but the taste comes through a lot and you have to use a little less.

*** You can also do this by hand using a rounded whisk, but it will take a lot longer – around 10-15 minutes of vigorous whisking.

To make this smoothie nut-free replace the almond milk with another non-dairy milk and the almond butter with soy nut butter.

To make this smoothie gluten-free, use certified gluten-free oats.
