Motivated Morning Chocolate Protein Mocha Shake

For mornings when you need some protein and a kick of caffeine. Also good for warm, humid days when the idea of drinking a hot coffee is off putting. Makes about 2.5 cups.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups Soy Milk
  • 1 scoop of Plant-based Protein Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Vanilla Jello Pudding Mix Powder (this is the secret ingredient, there is no gelatin in the powder)
  • 2 tsp Instant Coffee
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 6-10 Ice Cubes
What to do:

1. Put all ingredients in a blender except the ice cubes. Blend until well mixed.
2. Add the ice cubes and blend. Add one at a time if you don't have a high powered blender.
3. Serve and enjoy. I like to add a bit of coconut whipped cream to the top.
