Verdict: win

I was inspired to make this smoothie by all the recent pictures and recipes of breakfast smoothies trending on the food blogs I follow. I've been drinking coffee every morning before work and felt that a cold, coffee-flavored smoothie would be a great way to combine my morning coffee with breakfast...or dessert :) Be forewarned that this smoothie can come out thick. It's not the prettiest, but it satisfies my caffeine requirement and sweet tooth easily.

Coffee, Peanut Butter, & Nutella Smoothie
Yield: 1 serving

1 banana, peeled and frozen
1/2 tbsp peanut butter (I use crunchy because I like the bits of peanuts)
1/2 tbsp Nutella (or any chocolate-nut spread)
1 tbsp instant coffee
1/4 cup milk (I use unsweetened soy or almond milk)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Blend in more peanut butter, nutella, or coffee to taste; or milk for a thinner consistency. (If using a blending wand, blend together the banana, peanut butter, and nutella until smooth. Mix instant coffee with the milk, then blend with the banana mixture.) Serve immediately.
