This shake is my newest breakfast obsession. It contains two of my very favorite things: coffee and almond butter. And then it just keeps getting better with the chocolate and cinnamon.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 tbsp almond butter
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3-4 coffee beans or 1 tbsp. brewed coffee cold
5-8 ice cubes
Starting with the almond milk, place all the ingredients into a blender. Depending on your blender’s settings, first start on the chop mode to chop up the ice and coffee beans, followed by pureeing the mixture to create a smooth, even consistency.
In order to get your preferred consistency, you can also start by not adding any ice, following the other steps above. Once all other ingredients are mixed together, slowly add the ice, mix and then test. Continue to add more ice cubes until the desired consistency is met.
If too thick, you can add some more vanilla milk, little by little.
