Vanilla Protein Iced Coffee

This Vanilla Protein Iced Coffee has been a new morning favorite of mine!

After I have my regular cup of coffee, I’ve been turning my second cup into this glass of iced deliciousness! A few minutes before I’m ready to make my iced coffee, I simply pour a cuppa  from my French Press to set aside & cool off a bit. This is super easy to throw together … here is what I use / my simple little method:

INGREDIENTS
Coffee. 1 cup / 8oz.
Garden of Life Organic Raw Vanilla Protein. 1 scoop
Cinnamon. a couple dashes
Ice. Small handful
Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. 1/2 cup

METHOD
Step 1.
Coffee + scoop of protein powder + cinnamon goes in the blender. Secure the lid, and pulse for about 5-10 seconds to make sure the powder blends up nice & smoothly..
Step 2. Pour your coffee/protein blend into a glass + add ice
Step 3. Pour 1/2 cup AM on top of coffee & ice, give a little stir & voilà!

Health Boost: Totally optional here, I sometimes like to add a scoop of Maca Powder to mine for an extra health & energy boost! 🙂

This is a great way to enjoy your coffee + get in that extra bit of much needed protein to help build lean muscle & burn body fat! Also, great for those mornings when you need to get out the door in a hurry. Grab an apple or banana to eat afterwards & you’ll be full & energized well into your morning! xx

Much Love,

    Do you like the Garden of Life Organic vanilla protein more than the Plant Fusion. How do they compare in taste?

      Hi Elise!I do! I’ve used Plant Fusion in the past. The flavor is great, but the texture is pretty chalky. Which is to be expected for plant based protein powders. Garden of Life isn’t as chalky and I love the taste! Hope this helps! xxLS
