Besides being a great after-workout drink you can also fight the afternoon hump & kill pre-dinner cravings with it. Moment of truth: I used to really dislike protein shakes but I have found that using unsweetened low calorie almond milk when making them makes for a yummy, creamy creation that I highly enjoy. If you are a coffee lover or just love an indulgent frozen drink, I promise you will love this one. Here’s a link to the coffee protein powder mix I use.
Mocha Coffee Protein Smoothie
- 1 TBSP cocoa nibs
- 2 packets Stevia sweetener
- 1 tsp Guittard Cocoa Powder
- 8 oz unsweetened almond milk
- 2 scoops Ilike Chike Protein Iced Coffee Mix get it at HEB
- 1.5 cups ice
Blend everything together until smooth. Add more ice if you wish. Add the chocolate chips when it is blended smoothly already and just pulse the blender so you still get little chocolate chunks when you sip! If you love the Java Chip Frapuccino from Starbucks you’ll love this one!
