Wondering if there are other ways to use coffee? Here are five ways to use every last drop of your favorite brew.

Coffee Ice Cubes

Coffee cubes are a great way to save coffee to blend into a frozen drink or slush for an afternoon refresher. Try coffee cubes in our Vanilla Bean Iced Coffee for a treat anytime or season.

Buzz Bites

Whether fueling for a workout or seeking an afternoon pick-me-up, these nutritious bites have got you covered. They contain a nice blend of carbs, healthy fats, and of course, coffee to get you going. Add chilled coffee, rolled oats, nuts, and naturally sweetened dates for snacking fuel all day.

Coffee Smoothie Bowl

If you’re more of a one-and-done breakfast person, this deliciously frosty bowl is for you! It combines your daily cup of coffee with a nutritious breakfast smoothie, so you can pack in the good stuff and get out the door. To add an extra boost of protein to your bowl for a full meal, try blending in a scoop of your favorite chocolate-y protein powder. Try our Plant-Based Chocolate Protein for 21 grams of added protein.

Coffee Mocha Pudding

The avocado adds major creaminess to this pudding, making it packed with nutrients and healthy fats. If you haven’t tried avocado in a dessert, here’s your chance to enjoy a rich and creamy treat filled with chocolate and coffee goodness.

DIY Coffee Scrub

Once you’re done with your coffee grains, upcycle them for a nice body scrub to help exfoliate and remove any dead skin cells. Mix together equal parts coffee grains, brown sugar, and some coconut oil for an at-home mini spa treatment.

What are some other ways you’re using coffee? We love seeing what you whip up in the kitchen. Share your creations with us on social at @nutribullet.
