If you know me at all, you know that I am not a morning person. People are just not meant to be awake before the sun rises!
That said, there are some days when early rising is not avoidable. The Fit is the New Black blog has managed to do the impossible, to create a simple recipe for a good tasting breakfast protein shake :)
Here is the link to the original recipe.
The recipe calls for ice, 1 scoop of protein powder (chocolate or vanilla), 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup of brewed coffee, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, and Truvia or Stevia to taste. Blend all of these together et voila!
When trying this myself, I used vanilla protein powder and regular 1% milk because that was what I had on hand. I also found that I did not need the banana or sweetener. I am normally the type of person that loads up on cream and sugar whenever I have coffee. However, I found that when protein powder was added to this drink, no other sweetening is required.
