Confession: I LOVE sweet, girly coffee drinks. I’m a barista’s dream. I like fun syrups, heavy cream, whipped cream, the whole bit. What I DON’T love are the macros involved, so, per usual, I hacked it.
Protein Coffee – A Complete Breakfast
Allow me to introduce to you Protein Coffee, an easy, sweet way to start your morning that’s packed with PROTEIN instead of empty carbs.
The Stupid-Easy Recipe
This isn’t really a recipe as much as a strategy I wanted to share. But here it goes:
1 scoop of 1st Phorm Protein
1 cup of coffee.
That’s it. For real.
How do you mix protein powder into coffee?
Grab a blender bottle and put HALF a cup of coffee in with a full scoop of protein powder. Shake once and open the top to vent. Hot coffee + protein powder = scientific explosion experiment! The powder expands with the hot liquid and if you don’t release the pressure for the first few shakes, that bad boy will explode all over you. So, shake, open, shake, open, shake, open.
Once you can feel that there’s not much pressure when you open it (it doesn’t POP really hard), then you can close the top and shake the daylights out of it. Once its mixed well, pour it into your mug and add the other half a cup of coffee. Stir and enjoy. Seriously. Some recipe, huh?
How many macros are in protein coffee?
Instead of my mornings starting with nothing but carbs in my sweet, fancy coffee creamer, now it starts with 2.5f, 5c, 24p. Not too shabby.
