Protein Coffee

It’s the best of both worlds

As a mother of small children, coffee is my friend….my BEST friend.  As a woman trying to lose weight and gain lean muscle, protein is also my friend.  So when trainer Irene of GetUFit posted this recipe idea, I knew I HAD to give it a try.  

 

This is SOOOO good people.  All the great taste of coffee, with a hint of yummy vanilla and punch of protein. Depending on what vanilla whey powder you use, you’ll be adding about 10-12 grams of protein to your morning coffee! AWESOME, right?!

 

Pair this tasty beverage with a  Power Muffin or Greek yogurt with some fruit  for a complete powerhouse of a breakfast!

 

Protein Coffee

Ingredients

- 3 Tablespoons Vanilla Whey Protein

- 2 Tablespoons HOT water

- 8 oz of your favorite brewed coffee

Optional topping or fat free whipped cream

 

Directions

1. Whisk together hot water and protein powder until well combines, smooth and creamy.

2. Mix protein mixture in with brewed coffee and enjoy!

NOTE:  Do not just add the powder to the hot coffee,  it will not dissolve

    This sounds like just what I need! I love coffee in the morning and I surely need the extra protein without the extra calories. I have a Kuerig coffee maker so all I need is the whey. I will definitely give this a try and pass it on to my daughter who already has both! Thanks Corey for the great recipes!

  2. OMG!!!! this sounds like MY type of coffee!!!

    Afternoons are my lag times. So i did the above by adding the powder to the water then to my ice coffee. It allowed me to use less cream and was awesome! Thanx for sharing!

  4. Coffee break will never be the same! I have to try this! Yum and good for you!

  5. Um, YES! This is what I need! Definitely going to try it. Thanks!

  6. OMG this just made my day! To be able to say “Don’t worry, my coffee is good for me!” is like a dream come true! Will be trying this in the morning for sure!
    Thanks:)

  7. I’ve been doing this for a while. I whir (?) little cool coffee with the powder in my magic bullet. Sometimes I go crazy and use CHOCOLATE protein powder! Sometimes I also add cinnamon! Crazy! :)

  8. As someone who has battled obesity (and won) my whole life, this site is giving me tons of ideas to continue to live healthy!! Giving this idea a try in the morning!
