Adding cold brew is a delicious twist on my chocolate protein smoothie. Reminiscent of a mocha frappa whatever from your nearby chain coffee shop, but so much better for you! A nice combination of protein, fat and fiber that will make you full rather than crash from all the added sugar and questionable ingredients.
It happened by accident, actually. One day over the summer I realized I hadn’t had coffee yet, and it was 1pm! My cold brew is always half caffeine so it wasn’t exactly a headache that reminded me, I just love the taste of coffee and missed it that day. It seemed like a delicious way to get my coffee fix for the day as well as make my smoothie for lunch and I haven’t looked back since. A happy mistake and one I’ve enjoyed many times.
Mocha Protein Smoothie
A delicious twist on the standard chocolate protein smoothie but still keeps the fat and fiber to stay full for hours.

- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder By Well By Kelly is my favorite
