Nutritious Delicious Breakfast Frappuccino
This incredible Nutritious Delicious Breakfast Frappuccino has everything you could ever want in a breakfast. This frappe is not your typical coffee treat, but a sensational blend of java to give you a jolt, spinach to start your day off with a blast of veggies, oats to fuel your morning and a frozen banana for added vitamins and minerals.
Yesterday, was the first day of school for my kiddos. I work for the school district where they attend; and so this was the first day I was really back in business too. Thanks to this Breakfast Frappuccino I was alert, feeling great and able to push through the day without a problem.
After becoming totally addicted to the Banilla Frappuccino, that I shared last week; I had the idea to add spinach and oats to make this frappe a complete and healthy breakfast. We all know that you can’t even taste spinach in a green smoothie, so why not add it to a frappe?!?! You think we could get our local coffee shop on board? 😉
- 1 cup cold brew coffee
- 1/2 cup almond milk or other preferred milk
- 1 small ripe frozen banana
- 1-2 cups handfuls fresh baby spinach
- 1/3 cup rolled oats this can be left out if you prefer
- 1 tablespoon Chia seeds optional
- 1/2-1 cup ice cubes for desired consistency
- preferred sweetener- I use 3 packets of Stevia.
- preferred add-ins; like frozen berries nut butter and/or shredded coconut
- Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender (chia seeds and powder sweeteners added last). Add ice as needed for desired consistency.
This makes 1 large serving or 2 smallish servings. I enjoy drinking the entire serving for my breakfast.

I’ve got to share a little peek of our “first day of school” pictures… this is an every year tradition. The kiddos had a great first day… thank goodness! It’s only the first week, but I think it’s going to be a wonderful year.
Something to think about….
Have you ever combined coffee with your green smoothie?
Do you have a favorite, somewhat odd, breakfast creation?
Anyone else have kids that just went back to school? I hope they are having a great start!
