Cafe Dolce

Cafe Dolce

Do you ever get a craving for food or a drink when you're watching a movie?  DH and I do all the time.  In fact, that's when we seem to be the most creative with our concoctions.

We just finished watching "Today's Special" and were getting ready to watch "Extract" when DH came up with the idea of making something with bananas and coffee.  Maybe it had something to do with both movies being about food.  :-)

He was wanting something hot and I wanted something that would be good cold too.  We didn't have any ice cream.  In fact, we were talking about going up to the store so we could use the bananas in a drink but found some plain yogurt and thought we could do something with it.

Cafe Dolce


3 Ripe Bananas
2 Cups Cold Coffee
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
1 Tablespoon Instant Coffee Granules
2 teaspoons Agave Syrup
2 Shots (3 ounces) Coffee flavored Liqueur

Some notes about what we used:  

  • We used Soy Milk, Plain Greek Yogurt; you could use any milk and a vegan yogurt or a soft tofu
  • The coffee flavored liqueur was Kahlua but of course this is optional (we weren't driving anywhere and thought it would be a nice little treat)
  • The drink is very tasty chilled but the banana flavor intensified when heated
We hope you enjoy this special coffee drink.

What dinner or drink and movie combination have you had lately?
