Mocha Protein Shake

Need a morning pick me up? Try this Mocha Protein Shake! The best of both worlds--protein and caffeine to start your morning!

I don't know about you but sometimes I need a little caffeine with my protein in the morning.  And perhaps some of you might benefit from some protein alongside your morning cup of joe!  Either way, on a very tired summer morning, I came up with the perfect concoction of two of my favorite morning drinks--coffee and a chocolate protein shake!

Like any cup of coffee, you can vary what you put in it based on your personal preference but this is a good base to start with.

Mocha Protein Shake

1 cup coffee
1/2 cup original unsweetened Almond Breeze almond milk
1 scoop/serving chocolate protein powder (I use Whole Foods soy version)
1 tablespoon Splenda or sugar
1 cup of ice

Blend all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!

Based on your protein powder and the milk you use, the calorie count will vary but mine is about 150 calories.

I also tried a version with vanilla protein powder and added a few pumps of Sugar Free Caramel Torani instead of Splenda.  It was amazing!!!
