A few weeks ago, I tweeted out to my universal fitfam asking the question on whether there had been any success on mixing protein powder and coffee together. There was a lot of interest in the question, but no one seemed to have answers. Until now. I had a very successful afternoon in my test kitchen and just could not wait to share the results with you all! This is exactly what I did:
1. I mixed 1/2 a cup of coconut almond milk with 1/2 a scoop of PaleoPro Aztec Vanilla protein powder (which if you didn't know...this stuff is just incredible). I put them together in my shaker cup and shook away.
2. Then, I brewed a cup of coffee in my Keurig using my reusable coffee filter (for sustainability reasons, I wanted to throw that in there)
3. Next, I poured the mini protein shake into the coffee. Here is where the tricky part is...usually this is where the heat would cause the protein powder or protein shake contents to start separating into clumps to give a grainy taste...BUT!!!! I used my milk frother that I just got the other day to mix it together and IT WORKED! No clumps, no lumps, just smooth and delicious hot coffee with 13.5 grams of protein. Since I do have some barista experience, I was able to froth it up for a latte type consistency too. It was delicious! I'm sure you can play around with different flavors, but this one worked for me.
Now, I just need you all to try it out on your protein powders so we can see if they all blend as well as the PaleoPro did (Click here to purchase some PaleoPro). Please leave me a comment if you give this a shot and it works with yours. Here is the link to the Milk Frother which I believe was key to the success of the blending:
