It’s summer, which means it’s time for pool days, evening walks, sundresses, and HOT days. I love a warm coffee beverage, but summer calls for iced coffee.
I love an iced coffee with milk, but I love a healthy coffee smoothie even more!

Recipe Modifications for Making Your Iced Healthy Coffee Smoothie at Home
If you want to add more to your coffee smoothie, try any of these modifications.
Add a scoop of collagen powder to increase the protein count. Collagen also helps build healthy and strong nails!
For a rich coffee smoothie, swap out the milk with a scoop of powdered milk. Powdered milk will add a creamy texture, and the extra fat in whole powdered milk vs. 1% milk will make the coffee shake tastier.
Peel you the banana and put it in the freezer. A frozen banana vs. a regular banana makes a coffee smoothie extra tasty and refreshing on a hot day!
If you hate taking vitamins each day, add them to your smoothie and drink them! One of my daily vitamins if Acetyl L-Carnitine.
What’s Your Go-To Smoothie to Make at Home?
Do you have a favorite (and healthy!) go-to morning smoothie or beverage?
I may start making more smoothies again now that it’s summer-time. I love a good fruit smoothie after dinner as a healthy dessert.
I’d love to hear from you!
Have fun sipping on your iced AM coffee beverage!
