If you’re like me and try to stick to a regular workout program, you’ll probably at some point want to incorporate whey protein powder into it. If you’re still like me, you’ll not care at all for artificial sugar substitutes and hence have issues choking down a protein shake. Then I decided to make a mocha using protein powder.
I’m not claiming to be an expert in nutrition or anything of the sort, but this is what worked for me:
A note, coffee is a bit acidic so you must add the milk first then the protein powder. Otherwise the whey in the protein powder will curdle upon contact with the coffee concentrate (not tasty, unless you like chewing little blobs of protein in your mocha). The milk balances it enough that the powder will mix well.
So there you have it, this works for me as a pre-workout drink or sometimes if I don’t have time for a good balanced breakfast as a meal replacement (note, I’m not recommending this as a meal replacement, just that sometimes I make it one). Anyone else do something like this?
