Kick start your morning with this delicious Coffee, Oat & Banana Smoothie - with coffee to wake you up and oats to keep your hunger away. You can enjoy it hot or really cold too, so it's perfect all year round.A couple of weeks ago I popped into my local Costa and I saw them advertising a coffee, oat & banana smoothie and I thought it sounded yummy, something I know I would enjoy. The sensible food blogger in me, always curious about how new things look and taste, should have bought one to try. However, it was quite early in the morning and freezing cold so I bought a coffee instead. The next morning I decided to give it a try for my breakfast and I can confirm that (my version of) it tastes delicious. Having not actually tried the Costa version I can’t confirm how like their’s it is, but who cares if it tastes good.

I like my breakfast smoothies to be a medium sort of temperature – warm enough so that they can be drunk in a hurry without chilling my insides, but not hot. However, I know that there are some of you out there who like super cold smoothies so I’ve shared how to adapt it for that, and Jon likes his hot, so I’ve shared how to do that too (it’s great if you need warming up, like a delicious, drinkable porridge).

For this recipe I’ve used regular cows milk but it can easily be switched for dairy-free (& therefore vegan) alternatives such as soy or almond milk.

  1. This is my go-to smoothie at the moment. It tastes really good (I love coffeee) and is also quite filling. I love your site by the way.

  2. I loved this recipe. I’m a big fan of the one they sell in costa but this in much nicer and cheaper. I did add a touch of honey but that’s just a personal preference.x

  3. Hey! i love this. I’ll definitely try this out this weekend with my family. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I think Costa also adds honey

  5. Hi,

    Was just wondering if instant coffee like Nescafe would work?

    • Charlotte Oates

      It should be fine. Dissolve it in a little boiling water first before adding it to the smoothie.

      • Thank you! I tried it out and it was wonderful! 🙂 Love your blog. I actually found it by chance when looking for a quick recipe for homemade custard. Btw, that turned out well too. 🙂

  6. I might swap the milk out for almond milk for a vegan version

  7. I am definitely going to give this a try as I love the costa one- and it’s a great source of energy!! But a £3:50 a pop a homemade one would be ideal!! Also if you don’t drink regular milk- oat milk is really good in this- as it adds to the oaty flavour!

  8. I would not have thought about combining banana and coffee in a smoothie, but I imagine (now I have thought about it) that it is pretty yummy……. cold, very cold or hot! May just have to whizz one up! x

  9. This looks so perfect! Filling AND delicious

  10. I love the idea of this – sounds like the perfect breakfast. I had no idea people drank smoothies anything but cold. I’m going to have to try the hot version now! Maybe I have been missing out??? Thanks for linking up to #CookBlogShare 🙂 Eb x

    • If you search on Google you’ll find quite a range of hot smoothies. I personally don’t think it suits the fruity ones as well as I think they need to be cold and refreshing, but this one is like a really smooth, warming porridge.

  11. Love a smoothie in the morning especially with oats in! So easy to adapt it for the Peachicks (although have to figure out what to replace the bananas with for me!) Never thought of putting coffee in a smoothie -def going to try it! I’m with you though, I like them not ice cold (unless its the summer)!

    • I didn’t realise you couldn’t have bananas 🙁 I’ll have a think about what might make a nice alternative (although I may struggle as you won’t find a banana-free smoothie on here, I’ll try my best though x)

  12. This is a great breakfast idea, my children aren’t crazy about oats (unless it’s overnight oats) but they would love the coffee flavour in this recipe (I’d use a bit less coffee for them but a double espresso for me!).
