Coffee-Banana Breakfast Smoothie

We brew coffee every morning. For years, we used an inexpensive french press. However, about 3 or 4 months ago, we retired the french press and decided to try something new: the Chemex Coffee Maker. We love it! The coffee is never bitter and we never get bits of coffee grinds in our coffee. It’s wonderful and we highly recommend it.

In addition to coffee, we usually make a few eggs with sauteed greens and bacon. Yet, sometimes we do not have time for all of that. So, on these hot summer days, we simply turn our coffee (which we tend to chill before drinking) into a breakfast smoothie. This coffee and banana smoothie is simple and fast. Plus, it provides a rich flavor and a caffeine boost we enjoy while filing our stomachs.
