Coffee Banana Milkshake- Tiramisu !

Coffee Banana Milkshake - Tiramisu! by 2sistersrecipes.com

Good Morning!  Hope you had a nice weekend!  Coffee Banana Milkshake Tiramisu is my take on a quick ‘pick me up’ kind of a snack, and tastes like our favorite Tiramisu dessert only it’s in a milkshake!  This coffee banana milkshake is made with a shot of espresso, frozen vanilla yogurt, frozen bananas and low-fat milk.  Refreshing and SO yummy, you’ll fall in love with this easy and delicious ice cold treat!

The other day,  I felt I was running out of steam and needed something that would give me an energy boost. This coffee banana milkshake gives that similar taste and richness to that of an Italian dessert called Tiramisu, only it’s made in a delicious tasting milkshake.

Best of all, it’s without all the fat and calories!

I simply added a shot of espresso to my milkshake to give me that caffeine boost I needed.  Don’t worry if you don’t have an espresso machine or pot,  you can substitute the espresso with 3 to 4 tablespoons of instant coffee.

This coffee banana milkshake can be a morning favorite as well, simply because it takes only minutes to make!  Just toss all the ingredients into a blender, blend and drink up!

Once in awhile, I enjoy a milkshake every now and then, especially when it’s hot outside.  Milkshake or call it a smoothie, either one, they can be refreshing and filling at the same time.

 

Coffee Banana Milkshake Tiramisu provides me some potassium, caffeine and calcium – all in one glass!

Finally, garnish this milkshake with a sprinkle of cocoa on top – like the dessert!  Go ahead and add some whipped cream, chocolate syrup or even some chocolate shavings on top!   Try this one, I think you’ll love it!

Have a great day everyone!
