How can you add variations?

Fresh fruit is a great way to add another dimension to your coffee smoothie. Fruits like cherries, orange, or banana goes well with chocolate. You can either blend the flavors in with the mix or add them as fine chunks after you complete the blending process.

Syrups make another option for taking your coffee smoothie up a few notches. You can add additional chocolate syrup for a rich flavor. Vanilla can smooth out chocolate peanut butter. Hazelnut or caramel syrup makes excellent notes in many kinds of smoothie.

Toppings can take a great coffee smoothie into the stratosphere. Whipped cream is one option. But adding walnuts or peanuts is a great option also. Sprinkles add an additional element. A drizzle of caramel or chocolate sauce is perfect. Even a sprig of mint can make a difference.
