Coffee and Fruit Smoothie - The Ultimate Breakfast

Updated on January 18, 2018

This delicious smoothie is full of nutrients. It is a great way to start the morning with a kick. You may add ice cubes for an extra cold blended drink. This is great on hot summer mornings as an alternative to coffee. This beverage also works well in the winter. The ingredients are not very conventional. You might be a little bit surprised at how delicious this tastes!

      @ClassyGals: The cardamom is supposed to help get rid of the negative effects of caffeine. It is popular in Arabic countries.

      Sometimes I like to have coffee in the afternoon and feel kind of guilty about it. This smoothie sounds like a healthy replacement.

      If I just didn't have an acidic stomach, I'd like to drink more fruit smoothies!
