30 Breakfasts: Coffee Protein Shake.

Two recipes down…twenty-eight to go πŸ™‚

For my second breakfast in this challenge I decided to go with a yummy ‘Coffee Protein Shake’ I had pinned last month. Coffee in my morning shake? Sounds like a good plan to me!

Anyways, I clicked on the pin and realized that the recipe had actually come from one of my favorite bloggers: Fit Is the New Black. If you haven’t checked out her blog, I highly recommend you do so! Holly is the creator of the site and she gives GREAT fitness and health tips. She is direct, honest andΒ knowledgeable; I always look forward to her posts πŸ™‚ Thanks Holly for this delicious shake!

Coffee Protein Shake (2)

So the recipe? Another easy one!

Coffee Protein Shake
(via Fit is the New Black)
1 cup Cold Coffee
1 cup Almond Milk
1/2 Frozen Banana
1 scoop Protein Powder (vanilla or chocolate)
2 cups Ice

In a blender, combine all ingredients. Pour into cup and enjoy!

My Review: I really enjoyed this shake. It reminded me of a Frosty from Wendy’s (I mean, obviously it’s not exactly a Frosty but they are quite similar.) πŸ™‚ I am not sure if it would last me until lunch or a morning snack; however, if you use a higher level protein it would likely hold you over until your next meal.

  1. I have wanting to try this for a while. Finally did tonight. It was good. I did add a whole frozen banana instead of a 1/2 of one. Also I used Unsweetened Almond Milk and added a bit of chocolate syrup. Just needed more flavor. All in all I will make it again. Maybe next time I will try the sweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. Thanks for sharing. Going to pin it so I will have it.

  2. I love it I added a measured tablespoon of PB2 too it the first time I tried it..It was great!!
    Thx so much for sharing I love anything coffe & anything protein so this is a win win πŸ˜‰

  3. Just bought my personalized Oyster blender. This is my first smoothie…love it! I used hot coffee…hopefully it will fill me up!

  4. I made this today and omg, delish!!! Yes it tastes like a frosty! Loovvveee coffee not a big protein powder fan but this is the way I’ll use protein powder….thanks!!!

  5. Hey girls, I make my protein shake with coffee very similarly… Only I make my coffee the night before and mix 2tbsp INSTANT coffee in it as well for added coffee flavor (and kick)… Also when I treat myself I’ll add Seattle’s Best Latte powder… Which also contains coffee…. What else? I add this to my hot coffee and refrigerate it over night. Makes it quick and easy if you are running out the door after a busy morning like me… (Working out, getting kids ready for school, and getting yourself ready for work!!!) I use everything listed above but my protein shake tastes more like a frappiccino than a milkshake… Which I personally prefer. Plus…. You’re getting PROTEIN! (Oh I use coconut milk due to allergies and some honey)

  6. drinking this now. I’m on a semi/paleo diet and this is a nice option. I substituted blueberries and strawberries for the banana. Thanks!

  7. This looks delicious! I definitely want to try it, but like you said I’d probably have to have it with something else in order to stay full until lunchtime! Worth a shot though!
