Good morning! My day is off to a great start because I’m drinking a delicious morning macchiato smoothie a.k.a. an iced coffee smoothie.
Mornings have been really hard for me lately because I don’t have enough time to eat before taking care of the boys. I wake up every single morning starving. It doesn’t matter if I eat a ton before I go to bed, I will wake up with a rumbly in my tumbly. If I don’t eat right away I get hangry, fast.
With a coffee smoothie, I’m able to get caffeine and calories. A banana, dates and nut butter make this smoothie pretty filling! Coffee alone is never enough to curb my appetite, and I prefer to drink my coffee before eating. Since I’m a busy mom of two, it sometimes take me a while to finish my morning coffee. Hence why I end up hangry by the time I’ve finished my coffee.
This coffee smoothie gives me some time to lay in bed with the boys and get some extra cuddles in the morning. I’m usually too worried about getting chores done in the morning instead of spending quality time with the kids. I think I need to take the morning cuddles now while they are offering them, right?
I made this morning macchiato smoothie with International Delight caramel macchiato iced coffee. This has become a staple in our house because of the price. It’s the most reasonably priced iced coffee I’ve found at the grocery store and it still has great flavor.
You can find International Delight iced coffees in the refrigerated juice and tea section of Walmart. This completely threw me off because they used to be located closer to the milk. Here’s a photo to help you figure out the new location.
Not only have I been enjoying iced coffee in the morning, but I’ve recently been drinking the mocha flavored International Delight in the afternoons. Robert no longer naps so I need a little afternoon pick me up to help me get to the end of the day while he plays.
My mom enjoyed this glass with me while we watched the kiddos play. It was a much needed afternoon treat!
Do you want to make this too? If so, check out the recipe:
- 1 banana
- 1 C. of International Delight Caramel Macchiato
- 1 Tbsp. of almond butter
- 3 dates (pitted)
- 1 C. of ice
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
I can’t get over how well this drink has held me over until I’ve had time to enjoy a bigger breakfast. It’s been a huge lifesaver for me lately!
