Earlier in the week I showed you a delicious protein smoothie, but if you are really on the go, and don’t have time to deal with then blender and too many ingredients, a more traditional protein shake may be in order. I’ve even reduced your time spent on breakfast even more by adding in a shot of espresso to this smoothie.
This is an all in one breakfast drink including coffee and protein! You really can’t lose here, and it’s really tasty! This is also not as cold, which during the winter can be really nice. You could serve it over ice, but I left it at room temperature.
I usually prefer to have my coffee separately and enjoy it in the morning, but if I am ever really on the go, this is the way forward! I don’t even know if this counts as a recipe since it is so easy, but I figured I would share it with you anyway.
I am largely dairy free because of lactose intolerance, so the important thing for me is using a lactose free protein and a dairy free milk. If you prefer regular milk, almond milk or soy that is fine, but I love the richness that coconut milk gives to a smoothie or shake.
What you need:
- Chocolate protein powder (1-2 scoops)
- 6 oz of coconut milk
- 2 oz shot of espresso
Using a shaker, made for mixing protein shakes, put all of your ingredients into it and shake away.
The result is a really smooth and creamy mocha type drink, but with the added benefit of 25g of protein!
This is great for the super busy people out there, and any body looking for a little time saver in the morning.
