I have a new morning obsession! I LOVE coffee and I love protein shakes in the morning for breakfast. A few weeks ago, I was running out the door with my coffee in one hand and my protein shake in the other. I must have looked pretty comical trying to get into my truck. Yes I am stubborn, and refused to set one down to free up a hand. Yes, I managed to make it into my truck. No, I didn’t have a full cup of coffee at that point. 😦
The next morning, a light bulb went off – “ding!” PROTEIN. COFFEE. Now I have tried adding protein powders to my coffee before, but they never blended well and the taste was off. It ended up just ruining what I love about coffee in the mornings.
I decided to try mixing my current protein powder, MTN OPS Magnum Chocolate Malt, with my coffee, and see how it turned out. One taste, and I was in love! I created a super simple, super tasty coffee treat for my mornings that not only tastes fantastic, but only has 110 calories, 23 grams of protein, and fills you up.
1 cup Ice
1 scoop MTN OPS MAGNUM Chocolate Malt Protein Powder
2 servings cooled black coffee (any kind you like)
AND Blend…. thats it!
What I usually do is make my coffee and then set it in the freezer while I get ready to let it cool down.
Then right before I leave, I blend everything up and head out the door with ONE glass filled with a SUPER tasty coffee treat that is packed with protein and lots of other ingredients your body will thank you for. If you are a coffee freak and looking for a way to feel great about enjoying a delicious coffee treat in the morning, try out the MAGNUM MOCHA!
