The best way to get your coffee fix in is this Coffee Tahini Smoothie! Made with filling ingredients like cashews and tahini this smoothie will keep you full all morning long AND give you a boost of caffeine.
Coffee smoothies are life, as noted by my popular peanut butter espresso smoothie and my cold brew smoothie recipes. I truly couldn't love them more.
This smoothie is a breakfast smoothie, meaning it's meant to be your breakfast + coffee all in one. It includes healthy, filling ingredients like cashews and tahini to keep you full all morning long while still getting your fair share of coffee in.
Coffee - I used cold brew coffee for this recipe, but you could absolutely use regular iced coffee, or brewed hot coffee that's been cooled a bit. Whatever is easiest/whatever kind of coffee you prefer.
Cashews - I love adding cashews to smoothies -- they can easily replace bananas as a base, and they make them more filling (helloooo protein!). If you don't love cashews, you could sub raw almonds or you can use bananas if you prefer.
Oats - Adding oats makes this recipe feel a little more breakfast-y. Plus, it's a great way to include whole grains. If you want to keep this gluten free, be sure to use certified gluten free rolled oats.
Tahini - This is a tahini smoothie, so while I don't recommend any substitutions, you can technically sub your favorite kind of nut butter.
The best part about smoothies is that they're SO easy to make -- all you need is a blender and less than five minutes.
Simply add all of the ingredients to your blender and pulse for about 1 minute to ensure a smooth consistency. Then, pour it into a glass and drink up!
Tips and FAQs
Want to make this smoothie even more nutritious? Try adding a few simply ingredients! Add-ins include:
- chia seeds
- yogurt (Greek or dairy-free)
Do I have to soak the cashews?
Technically, no. Soaking the cashews ahead of time makes them easier to digest, and they become easier to blend in the blender when they're soft. If you're short on time/forget to soak them, simply boil them for 15 minutes instead.
Alternatively, you can use raw cashews -- it's not a huge deal, I just prefer using soaked cashews.
