This high protein and low sugar protein shake is a coffee lover’s dream. Toss all ingredients into the blender, top with cacao nibs and sip all the frothy goodness with a straw. Perfect for an afternoon pick me up.
On a rainy day, there’s nothing I like more than sitting by the window and writing with a delicious treat nearby to sip or snack on. But as the rain falls, sometimes my energy falls, too! So a quick caffeine boost definitely helps. But I don’t always want a latte or even just brewed coffee. So, I came up with this protein shake that comes with a kick of cold coffee and some cacao nibs for a pretty finish.
Let’s call this babe, Coffee Lovers Protein Shake.
Do you need a little pick me up? Go on you coffee lover, grab your favorite glass and the blender and get your coffee on. For the love of coffeeeeeee…. I hope you love this gem of a recipe as much as I do. Make sure to look at the notes — I included some options for toppings (I like cacoa nibs!) and also a tip for making this shake more or less sweet, depending on what you prefer.
