  • Instant Coffee – strong dark roast instant coffee works best. We recommend Starbucks Premium Instant Coffee.
  • Hot Water – used with instant coffee.
  • Sweetener – use your preferred sweetener.
  • Coconut Milk – pure Coconut Milk unsweetened with no added flavor.
  • Ice – if you prefer not to blend, you can make an iced coconut coffee drink as well by not blending.

Recipe Variations

You can skip the coconut milk and whip up a Coffee Frappuccino using the same base. Just blend the strong coffee with ice and sweetener for a creamy, icy treat. Want a chocolate twist? Add cocoa powder for a Mocha Frappuccino that’s rich and indulgent. These variations offer a delicious way to enjoy your favorite caffeinated treat at home!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use any type of instant coffee for this recipe?

Yes, you can use any type of instant coffee for this recipe. However, for the best results and to achieve a bold coffee flavor, I recommend using a strong roast such as French or Italian. These bold roasts will enhance the flavor of the coconut coffee smoothie, providing a rich and robust taste.

Can I use sweetened coconut milk instead of unsweetened?

Yes, you can use sweetened coconut milk instead of unsweetened in this recipe. However, since sweetened coconut milk already contains added sweetener, it's advisable to reduce the amount of additional sweetener used in the recipe to avoid making the smoothie overly sweet.

Can I use decaffeinated coffee instead of regular instant coffee?

Yes, you can absolutely use decaffeinated coffee instead of regular instant coffee in this recipe.

Storage Tips

It’s best to enjoy right after making it for the freshest taste and texture. However, if you have leftovers, you can slow down the melting process by placing it in the fridge.
