Memorial Day Is The Unofficial Start To Summer! This Iced Coffee Protein Shake Recipe Is The Ultimate Summer Drink!

Refresh yourself and refuel your muscles with this chilled coffee treat.

Enjoy this iced coffee drink as an afternoon pick-me-up or drink it 30 minutes before your workout to give you a boost while packing in the protein.

The recipe below suggests using vanilla flavor protein powder, but mocha or chocolate powder would work too.

Ingredients (Serves One)

  • 30g vanilla protein powder
  • 10ozs milk (of your preference—coconut or unsweetened almond milk are suggested)
  • Coffee


The preparation starts the night before. Make a regular hot coffee (as strong as you like) and then pour it into a ice tray. Pop the coffee in the freezer overnight so it turns into ice cubes of coffee. Make a lot if you want to enjoy iced coffee all week long.

Mix 30g of vanilla protein powder with 10ozs of your choice of milk and give it a shake until the protein and milk have blended together. Use milk that’s at room temperature if possible so the coffee ice cubes of melt sooner. Pop your coffee cubes out of the tray and into a glass, then pour the milk mixture over.

Top it up with normal ice if needed or if you want a weaker coffee.
