In the recipe for making the coffee smoothie it say's "1 cup of coffee " does that mean put a cup of coffee beans in the blender, or make a cup of coffee? And if make a cup of coffee how so?

If I don't like the combination of coffee and bananas, could I maybe add cranberries? Or craisins? Or conversely , if I eliminate the banana how does that affect the nutrition? Or raspberries....

We just bought a Vitamix blender and one of the recipes I tried called for instant coffee granules... We ended up buying some of the single serve coffee sleeves and putting those in... Worked like a charm. mG

I tried with unflavored protein and cacao powder - This drink really gives u a jolt - so beware to those who don't normally drink coffee or ingest caffeine.

Here's a great variation! I used 3 shots of fresh expresso, frozen, with 1% dairy milk (almond milk would be good), 1 envelope Vega brand Choc-O-Lot powder, and five ice cubes.

I tried with unflavored whey protein powder, raw organic cacao nibs, flax seeds, a single pack of taster's choice, a single pack coffee mate, 1 frozen banana and 1 cup of water. Man, this smoothie is a eye opener!!!!....YUMMY!!!!!
