This Chocolate Mocha Protein Shake is very reminiscent of Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino and an absolute dream for all of you fellow coffee lovers. It will surely perk you up with enough caffeine to elevate your workout and fuel your morning!
Ingredients
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder My favorite is vegan chocolate Shakeology
  • 1/2 cup chilled coffee*
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk any milk will work
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 packet stevia sweetener optional
  • 1 cup ice
Instructions
  1. Blend all ingredients. Add more ice as desired. I like to blend well with about 1/2 cup of ice and then slowly blend with another 1/2 cup ice. This makes for a slushier shake. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*For a stronger coffee flavor, use 1 cup chilled coffee and omit the milk. I also like subbing cold-brew concentrate for the coffee. It has a smoother flavor. You can make your own or buy it at most grocery stores. Trader Joe's has a great option.
**For a creamier smoothie with a little more staying power, add a half to a whole ripe frozen banana.
