peanut pistachio almond smoothie – with coffee!

Yeah, so the name of this smoothie isn’t all that creative. But I wanted you to know what’s inside instead of just calling it “Nut Party!” or “Nut Bomb!” or “Triple Nut in a Cup!” or…wow those are horrible names…anyway, ignore the name and drink the drink!

This drink was inspired by my two favorite smoothies from Lil’ Buddha Tea in Albany, New York.

How cute is this place?

“Meow!” I love that.

I combined the most delicious parts of Monkey Buzz and Go Nuts to create my very own super star of a smoothie.

Peanut Pistachio Almond Smoothie – with Coffee!


  • 1 tablespoon ground pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 banana, frozen
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee, cold
  • 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (even better if you freeze it in an ice cube tray first)

I kept the exclamation point in the title because I want to remind you that this will wake you up, fill you up and energize you for the day ahead! If you’re drinking it after dinner, I recommend downgrading to decaf coffee unless you’re planning to stay up all night trying to teach your cats to ride in a kitty stroller. No, I don’t do that! Anymore.

The best part of this drink is the pistachios. I never thought to use them in a smoothie prior to my visit to Lil’ Buddha, and now I can’t get enough of them.

The steps are super easy, just toss it all in a blender

and blend!

If you’re ever in the Albany area, I highly recommend Lil’ Buddha Tea. Not only are their drinks delicious, but just get a load of this food! The menu is all vegan, all the time.

I hope all you fellow East Coasters are safe and sound after Irene’s visit this past weekend. Sebastian sends you all an extra dose of snuggles and well wishes!

  1. cat stroller? really? Please tell me you are not also dressing them in infant sized Flames (ugh) jerseys.

    This caffeinated, nut-filled, blast in a glass needs to be in belly A to the mf SAP. I’m not joking, I may make this tomorrow morning.

  2. I want to go sit in Lil’ Buddha Tea and have one of those smoothie’s. But since I am never really driving through Albany, NY on my way to run errands, I think I will make this smoothie and pretend I am there…..having smoothies with you…and your cats. :)
