It all begins with coffee…

Attention all coffee junkies! I have found an amazing protein shake incorporating coffee to get you your morning joe and breakfast in one {healthy} shake! this post contains affiliate links, for more information please refer to my full disclosure page

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a coffee girl. Always have been, probably always will be. I need at least 2 3 cups of coffee to function, on a good day. But if you see me at the coffee pot and I’m filling up for the 4th or 5th time, I wouldn’t be too surprised.

Recently I found a recipe for coffee protein shake. {I use protein shakes as a meal replacement, usually for breakfast} Yumm! {Combining breakfast + coffee, what could be better?} This recipe is PERFECT for the on-the-go coffee junkie who are trying to be a touch healthier in the new year {myself included}


{Vanilla Iced Coffee Protein Shake}

This one doesn’t make as many ounces as my chocolate protein shake did. This recipe will still yield about 16-20 ounces though.

1 cup unsweetened almond milk {I use vanilla, but plain works just as fine too}

1 cup brewed coffee {I let my brewed cup set for a few minutes or even stick it in the fridge for a bit before I combine it in my plastic shaker with the other ingredients.}

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

2 cups ice

For this shake, I just put it all into my Contigo Blender Bottle and shake it up. I prefer this shake as a shake, but drinking it as a smoothie is just as delicious!

If you missed my chocolate protein shake last week, you can find it here. Who doesn’t love chocolate and healthy all in the same sentence?!
