I’ve got a surprisingly good-for-you recipe that’s perfect any time you want a little extra “kick” of energy (including before a workout).  How does a mocha iced latte sound? (Answer: delicious.)

Here’s why it’s surprisingly good for you – and why it’s a great pre-workout drink:

  • Carbs from the banana give your muscles fuel
  • Protein can help improve your workout performance & recovery.
  • Caffeine from the coffee gives you energy to boost your performance

If you’re not familiar with protein powder, there are literally hundreds on the market now including whey protein (made from dairy products) to plant-based powders made from hemp, rice, or soy.

TIP: If you drink coffee in the morning, make a little extra and keep it in the fridge to use later in this recipe.

Mocha Iced Protein Latte

(serves 1)

  • ½ cup brewed coffee
  • ½ cup extra creamy unsweetened oat milk
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 medium frozen banana, sliced 

Place the coffee, oat milk, and protein powder in a high-speed blender, cover, and blend well. Add the banana and blend until smooth. If you want a thinner consistency, add a little extra oat milk.

Delicious!

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
