Recipe: Mocha Coconut Protein Shake
I don’t even feel like this should be considered “healthy” in the slightest because it is SO good and tastes exactly like the Starbucks one! I use protein shakes/smoothies as a supplement to my diet to make sure that I am getting enough protein in this lean mean machine of mine!!
I like playing around with different combinations and since coconut milk is all the rage, I decided to put this together! Super easy.
Mocha Coconut Protein Shake
♦ 1 scoop Chocolate whey protein powder (I use Designer Whey)
♦ 1 cup of Original Coconut Milk (You can also use Vanilla Coconut Milk)
♦ 1 packet of instant coffee (I use Starbucks Via: Columbia)
♦ Optional: 1/2 tsp (or to taste) Coconut Extract
Put all ingredients in a blender. Mix and enjoy!
