    Oh la la! I’m in heaven with this delish banana coffee recipe. Just made it this morning and I hope to make again tomorrow and throw in a bit of protein powder. Great combination of flavors.

    I wanted a bit of a change from my usual morning smoothie and this was it! Love the flavour of coffee and bananas plus I added my protein powder and was good for the morning!

    Yum! This coffee was great. It made me wonder why I haven’t enjoyed the banana and coffee combination before now. A real treat!
