Suzy’s Coffee Protein Smoothie
The main ingredients in this coffee protein smoothie are — you guessed it! — coffee and protein, but that’s just your starting point. Get your java on (and include some healthy fat in your diet) by adding your favorite nut or seed butter, chia seeds, coconut oil or avocado, then give it some healthy-carb love with a bit of banana or another sweet fruit that doesn’t make the coffee taste weird. But, hey, who says weird has to be bad?

  1. I used my Magic Bullet and whizzed the liquids and the protein powder first, then I tasted it before adding the banana and the peanut butter. (I kept having to add more coffee so it would actually taste like a coffee drink.)
  2. Once the protein powder was well incorporated, I sliced the banana into the container, added the peanut butter and processed until smooth, probably about 30 seconds.
  3. The Lean Green Bean version, referred to as a “shake,” calls for coffee ice cubes, but I keep my brewed coffee in the fridge (I hate to waste), so I simply used my ice-cold coffee rather than going to the trouble to make (and wait for) ice cubes.
Recipe Notes

*I used Dr. Mercola’s Pure Power Protein in vanilla — also comes in strawberry, banana and chocolate. Wouldn’t it be extra-yummy if you used chocolate?
