Thanks to the coffee, this is very adult-tasting smoothie-style cocktail. In warm weather, it makes excellent mid-morning pick-me-up.
300ml/10fl oz milk
4 tbsp instant coffee powder
150g/5oz vanilla ice cream
2 bananas, sliced and frozen
Brown sugar, to taste
1. Pour the milk into the food processor; add the coffee powder gently until combined.
2. Add half of the vanilla ice cream and process gently, and then add the remaining ice cream and process until well combined.
3. When the mixture is thoroughly blended, add the bananas and the sugar to taste, and process until smooth.
Pour the mixture into the glasses and serve dressed with a few slices of banana.
