Low FODMAP chocolate coffee smoothie

Today I have a smoothie recipe for you! A chocolate coffee smoothie made with frozen banana, almond milk, cacao powder and coffee. The fact that you see a smoothie recipe on my blog today is quite unique. Because if you want to get me to swap my ‘real breakfast’ for a smoothie in the morning you have to be very convincing.

The green smoothie trend never got down to me. I have never understood it. Why would you drink a glass of green juice every morning? For breakfast! Just a glass of smoothie. And then tell everybody about it as if it is the best thing in the world and everybody should try it (don’t take what I am writing now too seriously, if you actually enjoy having a glass of green juice for breakfast, ignore my cynical rant). Ok, admitted, a smoothie now and then is quite good. But as a replacement for a real meal, every morning, no way. I will always choose something I can actually chew on over having a drink. For me, a smoothie simply doesn’t feel like breakfast. No, just give me a bowl of quark with banana and peanut butter, a healthy cake or a bowl of oatmeal.

Now you are probably wondering, well Karlijn, why do you, as ultimate smoothie-for-breakfast-hater, share a smoothie breakfast recipe with us now?! Actually, now I am thinking about it this is even more ridiculous than my ‘i-hate-green-smoothies’ rant above. I share this recipe with you simply because, for once, I felt like having a smoothie for breakfast. And because this chocolate coffee smoothie contains everything that I would usually put in my real breakfast too: frozen banana, cacao powder, coffee (I usually don’t put it in my breakfast but drink it next to it) and of course peanut butter.

So for once, I am sharing a smoothie recipe with you. Of course, you can also have it as a snack instead of breakfast or in the middle of the night if you’d rather do that.

Anyway, enough nonsense from my side now, it’s time for the recipe!

What do you need (for 1 smoothie)

  • 1 banana, frozen and in pieces*
  • 175 ml almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 10 gr peanut butter
  • 1 double espresso (a cup of normal coffee is also possible)

*Note: ripe bananas are low FODMAP up to 1/3 banana per portion (33 g). 1 medium unripe banana is low FODMAP (100 g). Larger portions unripe banana (125 g or more) are high in fructans and therefore high in FODMAPs. Make sure you use an unripe banana in this recipe. It is important to test your own tolerance level for bananas. It is possible that you tolerate ripe banana’s and if that is the case you can keep using them. 

How to prepare the Chocolate coffee smoothie

  1. Put all ingredients together in the blender.
  2. Blend.
  3. Pour your smoothie into a glass, put a straw into it and your breakfast is ready to eat, uh drink.
    P.S. Maybe this is what I don’t like about smoothies for breakfast: you can drink them within a minute. Too fast! But it is a good smoothie that has to be said (that’s all I have to say to promote my own recipe to you 😉 ).

Will you let me know if you make my chocolate coffee smoothie? I would love it if you would share your creations with me using the hashtag #karlijnskitchen on Instagram or by tagging me at @karlijnskitchen
