Designer Coffee 2015

If giving up coffee seems dastardly difficult, try adding some octane for 2015 instead.

Here’s the blogpost with the original recipe, and below, a cheerful demo on my You Tube channel with music from Dublin band I ♡ The Monster Hero. Hit the subscribe button, and I’ll keep you informed. (I’ll do the research, so you won’t have to!)



½ large banana, frozen

1 cup / 250ml home-made or unsweetened almond milk

1 shot of espresso (optional)

2 teaspoons bee pollen*

1 tablespoon almond butter (we love Keen nutbutter)

1 Medjool date


*caffeine will interrupt the absorption of some minerals and vitamins, but them is the trade offs for coffee lovers!

    This sounds delicious! I’ve been doing a similar one using chai spices, or sometimes a turmeric version. It definitely takes the edge off my coffee if I’m feeling a bit delicate!

      Ohhhhh turmeric. That’s a cracking idea. The Pressed Juicery do a turmeric almond milk that I sneak into iced coffee *darts to ktichen*
