Hit the gym and build some muscle, but first, enjoy a creamy coffee protein shake. The flavor in protein shakes gets old pretty quickly, and no one wants to drink the same thing every day. That’s why improvising a little is a great idea.
Protein shakes taste pretty good actually. They’re nicer now than ever before. Still, there’s lots of room for improvement. In this case, we’re using instant coffee to give flavor and a caffeine boost to the already energy-boosting protein shake.
Let me show you how easy it is to give flavor to a protein shake. In this case, the exquisite coffee flavor we all love.
To make this caffeinated shake, start with chocolate protein powder. Chocolate is more compatible with coffee but use vanilla if that’s what you have around. Just don’t use banana-flavored protein shake or anything exotic like that.
You’ll also need milk, instant coffee and probably some water to give the shake the desired thickness.Other possible ingredients include cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, a shot of espresso and vanilla extract. Try with different concentrated flavors, like almond extract and others.
To make any protein shake, you can use a kitchen blender, a more potent blander like one of those “bullet” appliances. You can also stir the ingredients by hand with a spoon, but protein shakes are often tough to dissolve. If this is your first time making protein shakes, you’ll have to experiment a little to get satisfying results.
You might also want to tweak the amounts to find your sweet spot. We all like our shakes differently.
Protein shakes are great for before and after a workout. You can also take them to the gym in a container or cup. Drink shakes early in the morning and after bed; just don’t overdo them.
It comes without saying protein shakes work best when part of a balanced diet. Last but not least, try different flavor combinations for your protein milkshakes; you’ll never drink them plain again — there’s so much you can do to make these nutritious shakes so more delicious! Now, let’s make ourselves a coffee protein shake.
Add the chocolate protein powder, milk, water and instant coffee into a blender and blend until combined.
Serve in and enjoy.
