Everybody loves coffee. How do you take your coffee? Chances are, a lot of people like black coffee plus sugar, flavored syrups, and those enticing holiday creamers. You know what I’m talking about - pumpkin spice, peppermint mocha, gingerbread, all that jazz.
Unfortunately, the ingredients that make coffee taste so good are also the ingredients that aren't the best for our health. It may seem like everything is bad for us nowadays, but we CAN have our cake and eat it too, with a little bit of creativity.
1 cup of hot, black coffee
1 scoop of protein powder
2 oz. of water or unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Optional: 1 scoop of collagen / 1-2 packets of Stevia
In a shaker cup or with a milk frother, mix the water or almond milk with 1 scoop of protein powder (and the optional ingredients if you're using them)
Pour the protein into a cup of hot coffee - or if you want a stronger coffee flavor, you can pour half of the protein in and store the rest in the fridge for your next cup of coffee!
It’s as simple as that! You end up with a protein filled drink that tastes like a mix of coffee and hot chocolate. A perfect way to enjoy coffee without adding that extra sugar and creamy fat to our coffee every single morning.
P.S. My go-to flavors for protein are either chocolate or cookies and cream and my personal favorites for coffee are either Texas Truffle coffee from World Market or Chocolate Glazed Donut coffee from Dunkin Donuts!
