One of the most popular articles I’ve ever written was actually a recipe for a coffee protein shake. I came up with the idea years ago, back when I was in college and was trying to have more nutritional meals but still leaned towards foods that were easily digestible and easy to travel with. Coffee remains one of my favorite things but it’s not a meal. Or at least, it shouldn’t be. I developed this recipe to blend two worlds together- the comfort and caffeine jolt provided by some java and the nutritional powerhouse of the protein shake.
For some more tips and tricks on how to make this shake, check out my YouTube vid above. Otherwise, this recipe is straightforward. Here’s how to make a coffee protein shake.
