Protein in the morning is a real booty-kicker. That is when I see people struggle the most with eating protein (myself included). Getting kids around, rushing out the door to our early jobs (because we wanted a little extra sleep…no judgment here), and having to grab a quick breakfast. BUT we all have time for our JAVA. So, what if we combined the two for a sweet, creamy protein-packed cup of java? I reveal the key to making NON clumpy protein coffee 😊
16 oz Coffee
1 scoop Protein Isolate (I use Vanilla Whey Isolate, but feel free to use another flavor)
½ cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk (regular milk could work too)
OPTION 1: Grab a shaker cup and shake the 1 scoop of protein with the almond milk. Mixing the protein with a cold liquid, such as milk, FIRST in a blender bottle is key to having non-clumpy protein coffee. Once protein powder is dissolved in the milk, pour and stir into hot coffee.
OPTION 2: Place all ingredients into an electrical blender. Blend on high for 20-30 seconds. I have the Ninja Blender with the individual cup, so I use that. This method also makes the top a little frothy (YUM).
Serving size: 16oz latte
Servings: 1 latte (using Whey Isolate with 26 grams of protein per scoop. Adjust calories and macronutrients based on your protein of choice)
