Star-Buff Mocha Protein Smoothie

Good morning!

I hope everyone is having a marvelous hump-day! We are half-way through the week! And I have found the cure to my morning craving for delicious, caffeinated coffee and my need for that muscle-building protein first thing in the morning that I have to share with you today!

It’s a combination of the two in this super easy, zero prep protein smoothie. I get my coffee fix that I need to get going and my dose of protein in the morning without any added sugar or cream. You don’t need it!

Mocha Protein Smoothie Ingredients

This is literally all you need:

  • Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Muscle Milk. It’s my favorite and tastes so good even by itself)
  • Coffee
  • Ice
  • Blender, Magic Bullet or similar

I brew the coffee in my Keurig while I am getting ready for work, then throw it in the freezer while I get Rylee ready, to cool it down.

Once I am ready to run out the door, I throw a scoop of protein powder into the Magic Bullet, add the cooled down coffee and a bunch of ice. Then blend until smooth.

(I need a better picture, this one doesn’t do it justice, because it is sooooo yummy)

I feel like I am drinking a Mocha Frappuccino, but feel so much better about it cause of the 15 grams of protein that are along with it!

I just found my new morning treat and I am loving it!
