Cold Brew Coffee Mocha Almond Protein Smoothie

Every so often you stumble across something so easy, so wonderful, and so perfect, that you feel compelled to share it with the world.

This is that thing.

Let’s begin by listing some of my favorite things: Chocolate, coffee, protein, and almonds… oh, and smoothies. I think you can guess where this is going…

So how easy was this? So easy I’m not even going to write up detailed instructions. I’m just gonna recap what I did here and let you put the whole mess together yourself. All you need is the following: some cold brew coffee (you can buy it everywhere now, or you can just do like I do and make your own very easily… and here’s a hint, use a french press to strain it. It makes the whole exercise stupid easy. It’s literally a two step process), chocolate whey protein (pick your healthiest powder), and almonds (I used the lightly salted ones… I just like the savory/sweet thing). Whipped cream topping is optional, of course.

I started by filling an ice cube tray with my cold brew coffee, this gives me “coffee ice cubes”. You can mix 50/50 coffee/water if you like, but like I said, I love coffee, so I loved mixing my coffee with coffee. Once your coffee cubes freeze, drop them into a blender with a serving of almonds and a scoop of protein. Blend the shit out of it until it’s a smoothie, then pour it into a glass and drink the hell out of it. 

Easiest protein packed breakfast/snack I’ve ever had, and by far the most delicious. Here’s the punch a glass packs:
