vegan-coffee-protein-shakeNothing like a nice cup of coffee to start your day.

This vegan coffee protein shake can double as your breakfast, or a pre-workout snack.

I’ve used coffee for my pre-workout for years, and still prefer it over the fancy energy drinks that taste like chemicals (that make you feel nervous and jerky).

You don’t even have to be a coffee drinker to enjoy this quick-and-easy vegan shake that’s loaded with protein!

The cacao (superfood) adds a little antioxidant/energy kick to it, and the almond butter gives it a nice texture.


  • 1 cup organic iced coffee, how strong is up to you
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp organic cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp all-natural almond butter
  • ½ ripe banana
  • vegan protein powder (30grams)
  • 6 ice cubes

Serves 1
