Proffee, Anyone? 4 Tasty Ways to Try the Protein Coffee Trend.

Coffee Protein Recipes

Move over, pumpkin spice latte. Butter coffee, your time is up. Protein coffee is the latest pick-me-up coffee trend.

Protein coffee (or “proffee,” as it’s called by fans of the brew) in its simplest form consists of hot coffee bolstered by the addition of protein powder. Some proffee drinkers prefer adding cold coffee or espresso to packaged protein drinks for a thicker twist. A more complex—and arguably more delicious—protein coffee drink consists of a custom blended protein shake with a coffee or espresso boost.

If your mornings are typically spent in a manic rush, protein coffee may be a perfect solution. You’ll benefit from the pick-me-up perks of coffee and a full serving of protein in one fell swoop. And if you choose to mix your own protein coffee shake, you’ll be able to add high-quality ingredients packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber. Hello, breakfast to go!
