Iced Coffee Protein Shake Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • About 2 Cups of Ice
  • 3/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 Cup Cold Brewed Coffee (unsweetened)
  • 1 Chopped Frozen Banana
  • 1 Scoop of Protein Powder (Chocolate or Vanilla)

INSTRUCTIONS:

In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until smooth (start with less ice and keep adding more until you get the consistency you like). Feel free to add a little plain greek yogurt or peanut butter to make it richer.

TIPS:

  • You can also puree this recipe (with an unfrozen banana), and pour it over ice. Keep in mind that this will lower the servings.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment and add some of your own favorite ingredients (unsweetened cocoa powder, greek yogurt, flax meal, coconut milk, oatmeal, chia seeds, peanut butter, etc.)
  • Be sure to use a protein powder that you love. If you find the protein powder taste to be a little overwhelming, try using just 1/2 a scoop, and add a little plain greek yogurt.
  • Use more or less banana depending on how sweet you would like your drink (the frozen banana also makes it a lot creamier– closer to a shake than a smoothie). When I really want to treat myself, I use 2 frozen bananas.
