Slingshot Cold Brew Coffee and Nutella Smoothie by Joe
A while ago our friend Jenn started a company called Slingshot Coffee, which makes really smooth cold-brew coffee. During a holiday-schedule-induced caffeine headache I found myself in a long line at the Whole Foods coffee counter with my family waiting outside in the car, feeling frustrated and irritable as the withdrawal/crowded places combo will often bring out in me. I just happened to glance over my shoulder, and there was a bottle of cold, fresh-brewed (I know because of the date) Slingshot Coffee staring me right in the eye.
So without giving it a second thought, I grabbed it and headed for the express lane. A few minutes later, after I’ve shotgunned about a third of the bottle in the car and de-Hulk-ified into my pleasant, rational self again, I started thinking about what I was gonna do with the rest of the bottle…
Cold brew coffee is probably the smoothest coffee you’ll ever taste, and Slingshot is especially potent so I was hesitant to drink the whole bottle on the way to the in-laws’. Because of it’s low acidity, cold brew coffee is especially good served cold, so I decided to put it in a smoothie. I’ve wanted to make some Espresso/Nutella drinks for a while, but my machine has a clog or something and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to, so I decided to throw some of my lonely jar of Nutella in there as well. Although I can’t come up with a name for it that doesn’t sound bad, I’m very pleased with the results.
- 1/2 cup Slingshot Cold Brew Coffee (Ready to Drink)
- 2 TBS Nutella
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1 Frozen Banana
- Ice (2-3 1oz cubes)
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. Then drink it.
If you haven’t tried Slingshot Cold Brew Coffee you can buy it online, you won’t regret it.
