Don’t roll your eyes, I promise this easy-to-make Iced Coffee Protein Shake ACTUALLY tastes good…
My morning routine usually goes a little something like….
Wake up at 7am, stumble over to my closet, stare at my clothes for about 3 minutes until I finally decide to throw on something decent enough for work.
Head over to the girls room and try to wake up my youngest daughter, for the first time, and then I’m off to the bathroom to turn on the flat iron and put on some mascara.
Back to the girls room, for the second attempt, to wake up my daughter and then return to the bathroom to finish fixing my hair…we need to leave the house in like ten minutes.
Third trip to the girls room, to once again try, to stir the tiny-grumpy-monster, I mean, my daughter, from her bed.
Off to the kitchen to start making my breakfast protein shake. Its now 7:25 and we need to leave in five minutes. I find a clean cup, add in my crushed ice, water, protein, collagen, and instant coffee mix.
I’ve now resorted to hollering across my house for my daughter to get dressed and brush her teeth. We’ll figure out her hair in the parking lot at daycare…
I drop the immersion blender into my cup and give it a few quick stirs and my shake is ready to go… usually after a minute or two the less-than-cheery five year old graces me with her presence in the kitchen.
Did you brush your teeth? Its now 7:32. Hurry up, please! We’ve got to go!
Collect the stuffed animal for nap time, the laptop bag, phone, wallet, keys… I think we have it all. Its 7:38. Ah, don’t forget the protein shake! Ok, ok, load up!
Mornings aren’t always easy, but this protein shake, always is!
2 Scoops of Orgain Organic Vegan Protein Powder, Iced Coffee Flavor (contains caffeine)
2 Scoops of Orgain Collagen Peptides
1 Scoop of Caffe D’Vita Instant Iced Coffee (contains caffeine)
2 cups of crushed ice covered with water
Grab a large cup, I prefer something that is not glass. Add about 2 cups of crushed ice (my fridge does the crushing for me) and top it off with water, just enough to cover the ice. Add in two scoops of Orgain Organic Vegan Protein Powder, Iced Coffee Flavor, two scoops of Orgain Collagen Peptides, one scoop of Caffe D’Vita Instant Iced Coffee and mix it until smooth.
I use a Bella Immersion Blender. It also comes with other attachments but I use it for protein shakes and also for making all the creamy soups in the fall and winter.
