An Iced Coffee Protein Shake is the perfect morning or afternoon pick-me-up! Super low calorie, non-dairy, high protein and filling.
1-2 cups of Ice
¾ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 Cup Cold Brewed Coffee (can be regular brewed coffee, just don’t blend while it’s still hot!)
1 Chopped Frozen Banana
1 Scoop (or 1 Serving) Protein Powder (Chocolate or Vanilla)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Start with less ice and keep adding more until you achieve desired consistency.
You can also use a room temperature banana and pour blended mixture over ice. Frozen banana makes the shake a lot creamier, more like a milkshake than a smoothie.
Feel free to experiment by adding some of your favorite ingredients; unsweetened cocoa powder, Greek yogurt, flax meal, chia seeds, peanut or other nut butters.
Be sure to use a protein powder you love. If you find the protein powder taste to be a little overwhelming, try using half a scoop (or half a serving size) and add a little plain Greek yogurt to boost the protein content. *Note, yogurt will make the mixture a little tart.
Use more or less banana depending on how sweet you like it.
