Protein Coffee

 Lately I've become addicted to protein coffee.
It's yummy and sits squarely on my good eating plan. I'm sitting here this morning (Happy Thanksgiving, by the way!) enjoying a cup of decaf coffee flavored with Vanilla Chai Spice creamer and a dash of chai spice that I unearthed in the back of my spice cabinet. I love that I have an automatic coffee maker with a timer .... so I wake up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee every morning.
Protein Coffee
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 splash milk or flavored coffee creamer
  • 1 splash or dash of SF coffee syrup or spices (optional)
  • 8-12 oz hot coffee
Add protein powder and milk/creamer to a coffee cup. Mix like crazy until you have a smooth paste with no lumps. Add a little bit of hot coffee. Stir some more until all the paste is incorporated into the coffee. Fill rest of mug with coffee.
I usually put the cup in the microwave for about 40 seconds to get it hotter. The cream tends to cool it down too much for me and I like my coffee super hot.


  1. I love protein coffee!
    For a while, this was the only way I could get extra protein. Love the french vanilla and the 18gr of protein that came with it. YUM
    Happy Thanksgiving


  2. I too like my coffee VERY hot, it doesn't get icky/clumpy in the microwave?

  3. Becky - as long as you mix the protein into a paste first, and slowly add the hot coffee while stirring like crazy, you won't get lumps from the protein powder. Enjoy!
