“I liked this drink after I made the changes I made listed below. This is a easy way to get your protein. I posted it for safe keeping. When I made this recipe I made changes to it because to me it was like drinking watered down coffee/cocoa. I used about 3 tbl maxwell house coffee. I also ran out of milk so I made up some with powdered milk. I used 2 scoops of protein powder. I used a whole packet of cocoa. I used almond sugar free syrup. I got this recipe from Obesity Help. It was posted by cotonmom2.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee crystals (2 scoops)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 -2 tablespoon vanilla protein powder (1-2 scoops)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free hot cocoa mix (1 scoop)
  • sugar-free syrup (try hazelnut or irish cream)


  1. In a big plastic cup, mix water and coffee and microwave for two minutes.
  2. In a blender, blend Milk & Protein on low until well mixed (no lumps).
  3. Add the chocolate (cocoa) and syrup to the coffee mix and stir well.
  4. Add the protein mix to the coffee while stirring.
  5. Put it in your ‘to go’ mug and hit the road.
  6. Note: It sounds like a ton of trouble, but If you have everything ready to go and it takes only minutes to do the whole thing. Faster than a McDonalds drive thru and LOTS more protein! Don’t forget to rinse out the blender immediately or the protein powders becomes like cement (recipe from Kristine).
