Mystic Java Cafe and a Smoothie

For some reason, Mystic Java Cafe doesn’t get much love in Austin. Formerly Jeanie’s Java and located in Great Outdoors Nursery in South Congress, the cafe has a good-sized vegan menu along with smoothies, coffee drinks, and beer. (Mimosas coming soon!)

The last time I was there, I noticed a smoothie called the Peanut Butta Cup o’ Joe and decided that it was something I needed to make at home. It’s become my daily breakfast.

Coffee peanut butter banana smoothie.

Coffee Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

1 frozen banana
4 ounces cold brew coffee concentrate (or equivalent to 1 cup coffee)
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk

The first few of these I had ended up being Coffee-peanut butter-banana-salmonella smoothies. Make sure your peanut butter isn’t on the recall list!

For anyone else watching carbs, this has 35g carbohydrate, 5g fiber, and 14g protein. If you like your smoothies on the sweeter side, you might want to add agave nectar or chocolate syrup to yours.

  1. I go to that nursery all the time but the cafe is has completely changed since the last time I went! I’m so excited to read this!!! I love that place AND they have smurf statues.

  2. You always make me long to visit Austin! Happy MoFo! It takes some skill to make a salmonella smoothie look so appetizing :)
