Author Notes: Back in high school I used to go to a bagel shop in our neighborhood and get this blended coffee drink they had called the jumpin' monkey that had espresso, chocolate, and banana. I suddenly remembered it the other day and decided I wanted to try to make my own homemade version. —fiveandspice
Prep time: 5 min
very ripe bananas, cut into chunks and frozen
(2-ounce) shots of espresso (or 4 ounces strong coffee), cooled
cup Greek yogurt
ounces milk, plus more as needed
tablespoon (heaped) cocoa powder
tablespoon honey (optional)
- Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy—adding more milk if necessary—about one minute. Taste and blend in the honey if you’d like the drink to be sweeter. Divide between two glasses and serve.
