Coffee Protein Smoothie with Cinnamon

Coffee Protein Smoothie with Cinnamon

This has been one of my all-time favorite recipes for years and I am beyond excited to share it with you. When I embarked on the journey of strength-building in 2015, I began to incorporate  supplemental protein into my diet and struggled with how to do it in a way that was delicious and not substituting an entire meal.

Being a coffee lover, I thought to add protein into my daily fix with some ice on a hot summer morning for my commute to work. Over time, I have refined different variations of this creation and ecstatic to share the original on the blog! I would highly recommend the Nespresso if you are looking for an unmatched coffee/espresso experience and love my Ninja for any sort of compact blending needed in the kitchen! Enjoy our coffee protein smoothie with cinnamon recipe below!
