A Cup of Joe Meets Protein

As we all know, lean protein should be the foundation of every meal. Many of us also drink protein shakes as part of our daily nutrition rituals. If you‘re not, you should at least be drinking a protein shake within a 30-40 minute window after each strength workout.

One of my favorite ways to start my day is to incorporate a serving of protein powder into my morning coffee. Now, I can’t attest that ALL protein powders dissolve well in the coffee, but American Whey (creamy vanilla flavor) is my favorite!

I often go to bed at night looking forward to this coffee drink in the morning:

  • 12-16 oz. of strong coffee!
  • 1 scoop of American Whey Creamy Vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup of soy milk
  • 1 packet of splenda

**Mixing Tip: I throw my scoop of protein powder and splenda in my coffee mug first, then add coffee and top with soy milk. I feel it mixes better this way.

Feel free to make modifications, but try it this if you haven’t yet! It’s a great way to jump start your morning with some caffeine and protein.

  1. Awesome, I do this too at the office — use chocolate protein for a mocha 🙂

  2. Hey Nicole! Yes, chocolate is delicious as well! Thanks for your post 🙂

  3. Alli, I already told Nick this, but you need to go out and get a french press. You don’t know what you’re missing with that paper-filtered crap! They can also be used to make great loose-leaf tea. It’s the only way to make coffee


    Good work on the blog!

  4. Hey Dan! Bring me a cup!! …i will look into the french press bc I love a good up of coffee 🙂
