i had some left over black coffee in the refrigerator for a few days. instead of just using it for iced coffee, i decided to make it into a smoothie. in an effort to use up a few things in our kitchen, including a very ripe banana sitting on the kitchen counter, i threw a few ingredients together in the blender.
the result was a refreshing smoothie. the cold coffee paired perfectly with the banana, peanut butter, and cocoa. a splash of half-and-half cream and agave nectar gave it a great flavor. it really hit the spot!
