Move over William Shatner and jog on Sean Connery, because today’s recipe features the ultimate smoothie. But this smoothie doesn’t have twinkly eyes or suggestive eyebrows, instead it’s packed with bananas, coffee and gob-smacking deliciousness.


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Ice cubes
  • Raisin-soaked coffee (left over from your coffee banana bread) OR a cold espresso
  • Chocolate powder for dusting


  1. Combine the banana, milk, ice and coffee in a blender or smoothie maker
  2. Whizz up the ingredients until thick and creamy and pour into a large glass
  3. Sprinkle with chocolate powder for a tasty finishing touch

TOP TIP: If you like your smoothies to be extra luxurious you can add some cream or yoghurt as well as the milk
