Not Just Your Average Morning Latte… or, “Pick Me Up!”

Want more in your morning cup of coffee… something that will not only wake you up but also keep you satiated (fill your tummy)? Hate that tummy ache you get when you drink coffee on an empty stomach?

The solution?  Whey Protein Powder!  Just 1 – 2 tablespoons of whey protein powder mixed in your coffee along with a splash of milk tastes great!

A couple pointers…

  • Use chocolate flavored whey powder – tastes like mocha!
  • Use whey isolate because it will mix better with the coffee – other variations of whey powder tend to not mix as well, leaving chunks – yuck!
  • Use almond milk instead.

Try it! Let me know what you think!
