  1. Oh, this sounds utterly divine. It would be perfect to take along with me on weekend mornings. The only ingredient I’m missing is the coconut milk, so I should pick some up ASAP and try this out. Can’t wait! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Goodbye, energy drinks.. Hello, coconut-coffee shake! As a sleep-deprived college student, I’m always looking for new ways to wake myself up. So far, excessive amounts of taurine seem to be the only effective fix, but perhaps the added banana and coconut will provide me with that extra boost that I need.

  3. That looks extremely delicious and easy to make. I can’t wait to try it out! It’ll help wake me right up, in the mornings. Also because it’s sweet, I won’t need my usual chocolate bar I have in the mornings.

    Chocolate, banana, coconut, coffee…sounds extremely yummy! Thank you very much for sharing!

  4. This looks lovely. I don’t think my digestive system can handle coconut/cconut milk, chocolate, coffee, and bananas in one go though. I’m pretty sure it would be upset honestly haha so I’m a little hesitant to try.

  5. The mixture of coffee and cocoa is simply divine!
    Also it’s a great way to use up older banana’s.
    We always freeze the banana’s when they are getting brown with the intention of making breads from them.
    We never seem to be able to make and eat enough of the bread, so this is a great way to make use of them.
    I actually didn’t have cocoa the first time I made it, but I did have chocolate milk.
    While not a perfect substitute, it was still good!

  6. Wow, Jennifer! This looks like heaven in a cup! Do you think this would work with light coconut milk?

    It does look awfully rich. But that won’t deter me from such a celebratory pick me up!

  7. Oh! This is so similar to a drink I like to make on summers. Instead of coconut milk I use vanilla yogurt (I sometimes add some milk to make it lighter) and only use coffee if it is for breakfast. Never tried coconut milk with this, but I’ve used coconut flakes with almost every drink because this smoothie is great to have along with homemade “alfajores de maicena” which use those flakes. So I’ll try this combination and recommend you to eat some alfajores.

  8. This looks like utter perfection. It combines three of my absolute favorite things! I would have never thought to make this and I am so glad I came across this recipe. Thank you for sharing!

  9. I have to admit, this look absolutely amazing. I can’t wait until I have all the ingredients to try this out. By any chance, could I replace the coconut with anything else that would still make it taste good? And preferably a healthy alternative?

  10. I’ve always loved the way coconut and chocolate tasted together, this recipe will definitely be one I’ll be trying soon. The banana added to it will not only be a boost of flavor, but also a great contributor to my protein intake. I could even see this recipe working great in my pre workout routine, as the caffeine would give me an extra boost.

  11. Chocolate and coffee are my two favourite things, so this obviously makes the most ideal drink for me. It sounds so simple and quick, something I can make before starting my day. I think the coconut milk is the only thing I need to go buy, the rest is already in my fridge. I think this would be a much better (and tastier) alternative to energy drinks. Thank you, Jennifer!

  12. This is basically my go to protein shake in the morning…just add a little protein powder. I also have found that adding kale can really give an energy boost to those who find themselves sluggish in the morning. I love drinking my breakfast as well as my veggies….these are great for little kids who refuse to eat veggies as well. I just hide it within the decadent ingredients and they never know.

  13. Yes please! This sounds delicious, I love anything with coconut milk and adding chocolate just makes it that much better 😉 Usually when I make smoothies I stick to the standard fruit and yogurt varieties, but adding coffee is such a fun idea and sounds really tasty. Anything that lets me have chocolate and coconut for breakfast is a win in my book, especially when it’s also caffeinated! 🙂

  14. Oh we have a lot of coconut in our country. We generally use it in different dishes. But this is really the first time I’ve seen coconut milk used this way. It’s pretty interesting. I’m very curious how this turns out. It is indeed a great alternative to the usual hot coffee. I’ll definitely give this recipe a try as soon as I buy a new blender. Mine just got busted. 🙁

  15. Mmmm! WOW! That is a very scrumptious looking smoothie. Quick question though Jennifer. Is there a substitute that could be used for the bananas? Unfortunately, I’m highly allergic to bananas, and one sip of this tasty looking smoothie would send me straight to the ER. I’m in love with this recipe. It looks so easy to make. I’ll try the banana free version in the meantime. I know it will surely taste delicious. What a great way to start the morning!

  16. Oh my goodness! This looks so delicious. I am a huge lover of cold coffee, bananas, and coconut. So, this would make a gorgeous afternoon shake for me. It looks super easy to make. The only thing you would need is a great blender. The closest drink I’ve had compared to this recipe was a coffee smoothie. It had vanilla flavored ice cream, vanilla coffee, and milk blended together.

  17. I’ve recently started drinking my coffee regularly and I have been wondering what I’ll do when summer comes around. I’ve never enjoyed an ice-based version much but this sounds so delicious! I can’t wait to give it a shot!

  18. Not a big coffee drinker but this looks like it would be a great tasting drink. Also the mix of banana, coconut and cocoa gives you a good amount of healthy nutrients. A great morning drink!

  19. I’m a HUGE fan of smoothies and this particular one has all the flavors that I like. It’s funny that I found this article now since I’m actually planning to make something once I get off the computer which has a couple of the flavors you talk about. It’s just a much lazier version. I have some leftover chocolate ice cream in my freezer so I’m just going to blend that with some coffee. Quick and easy!

  20. Yummm!! This recipe looks so yummy and really easy! I love making smoothies and then freezing them for the kids. This one will definitely be pinned for hubby and me for when spring comes around to SA. Would it be possible to freeze this as popsicles or will the bananas make this difficult?

  21. Yes, I found a drink for early mornings (finally, an alternative to the usual coffee). I think it’s just me, but it seems like this could be paired with waffles, pancakes, or biscuits. I’m not sure which type to choose, any suggestions?

  22. This sounds heavenly, only I would omit the bananas. I’m not a huge banana fan. But the coconut milk and coffee combination sound delightful. To make it a bit fancier I was thinking of adding a little Bailey’s Irish Cream for a mid afternoon drink poolside.

  23. This sounds absolutely, unspeakably, outrageously delicious! We are also lucky enough to have a local grocer that gives us their slightly ‘past their sell by date’ bananas at a discount, and I always keep some in the freezer in case I get the urge to make banana bread or banana ice cream – they’re not going to make it past breakfast time tomorrow that’s for sure! Thanks for the lovely idea!
