A quick review of the new Costa dairy-free breakfast smoothie - the Coffee, Oats & Banana Smoothie. I didn't know this existed until I saw the review on The Excited Eater and I knew I had to try it straight away.
The Costa Coffee, Oats & Banana Smoothie is a blend of coffee, Alpro oat drink, one whole banana, oats, a little ice and some honey (which can be left out to make this drink vegan). The consistency is not as thick or heavy as a traditional smoothie, it's actually quite thin and easy to drink. There were a few oaty 'bits' as I was drinking which added to the texture. I don't know why I've never thought of adding coffee to a banana smoothie but the result is surprisingly delicious.

The mild coffee flavour and creamy oat milk make a delicious combination with the sweet banana. I actually couldn't taste much of the honey itself but I'm sure it added to the sweetness. Despite being a thinner smoothie it's still very filling and kept me going until lunch. I'm definitely going to try to recreate this one at home!
If you've tried this drink then I'd love to know your thoughts in the comments below.
