A great way to achieve a healthy weight is to take in less sugar and more protein! Research shows excess sugar will spike your blood sugar which can cause you to feel even more hungry, have mood swings (hangry anyone?!), and store excess fat. And of course, Protein is key reducing our appetite and keeping our metabolism high to burn fat and retain muscle.
So here is a healthy recipe of Iced Coffee Protein Shake that tastes amazing and is also a nutritious meal replacement. This is a great Iced Coffee recipe that is low in sugar and full of quality Protein. And it tastes great too!
1.5 cups of Ice
1 cup of unsweetened Almond Milk
1 cup brewed coffee cold
1 frozen banana
2 scoops Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder- Here is my favorite.
Mix in a blender until smooth.
If you find it’s a little too thick, add a little more almond milk or coffee until it’s just right. If you find it’s too thin, add a little more ice or frozen banana. Feel free to change it up a by adding your own favorites such as unsweetened cocoa powder, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, oatmeal, or peanut butter.
These will also thicken it up. Don’t skimp on a cheapy Protein Powder. Use a high-quality one that is non-GMO, contains all 9 essential amino acids and tastes great so you will love to drink it.
Here is an excellent one that also contains added leucine to preserve lean muscle and achieve a healthy weight. Enjoy!
It's definitely been a journey to focus on natural health and wellness because some days I wildly succeed and some days I could eat the whole carton of ice cream. So I learn and grow and write and share. And as we stick together and encourage each other, we can reap the rewards! to Live younger longer and Look younger longer!
