Coffee & Chocolate

standard June 17, 2014 Leave a response

My absolute favorite treat in the summer is iced coffee. Cold, creamy, and caffeinated. Even with giving up coffee at home, sometimes an early morning deserves a sweet treat. Especially for breakfast. My favorite way to indulge is to make a breakfast shake. A combination of iced coffee and a milkshake that’s actually good for you? Yes, please! I’ve got two of my favorite morning breakfasts for you today, loaded with protein, coffee, and a bit of cacao.

Adding the ground coffee to the blender makes for a strong coffee taste. For a more mild coffee drink, prepare coffee and freeze in an ice cube tray, and then use the coffee cubes instead of ice cubes to blend.
