Bad Banana Smoothie

I've been making delicious breakfast smoothies this week using banana and almond & hazelnut rice milk, sometimes with a scoop of whey. I love them, thick and creamy and a beautiful flavour, plus they keep me going for hours. Today I decided to get a bit more creative. I blended a banana with almond rice milk, 1 tsp dried coffee and 1tsp cacao nibs. It was disgusting! Really disgusting, I drank it all since it would be a waste not too but I will never be mixing coffee and rice milk ever again! The bitterness/sweetness balance is horrible! The milk is far too sweet for coffe! The taste also reminded me a bit of liquorice, which I also hate. Anyway, this is what it looked like.

  1. It looks better than it obviously tasted lol. It just looks like a chocolate milkshake. I don't think the rice milk would be nice in coffee either.

    It does look like it should be nice, it was so disappointing! I feel really sick after it as well, I don't recommend it at all!

  3. When I saw the title I thought "Does not Compute", bananas are so great in smoothies, then I read about the coffee, cacao nibs. I bought some of the latter a while back after reading so much about them on blogs but they're definitely a chocolate product I wouldn't overindulge in them. I keep meaning to try them on porridge mind but they're already quite bitter and add that to the coffeee....ugh. Haven't tasted rice milk yet.

    I love the cacao nibs! Good to munch on to fix a chocolate craving - they were the best bit of the shake! It's more the coffe/sweet almond rice milk combo that must be avoided!
    If I'm feeling brave I might try the shake again just without the coffee.
    Not thought to add them to porridge but I imagine the bit of harder texture might be quite nice!
