If you're always on the go and don't usually have time to eat a big breakfast, there are other delicious ways to get your protein. Why not try an icy, blended protein drink that combines sweetness and a caffeine boost for a dessert-like breakfast to keep you full until lunch? Check out our quick, easy recipe for a vegan protein chocolate blended drink:
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups of ice (about 10 cubes)
- 1/2 cup of soy or almond milk
- 1 scoop VeganSmart All-In-One Nutritional Shake, Chocolate
- 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee or 2 shots of espresso
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and combine thoroughly. If the consistency seems too thin, add more ice. If it seems too thick or chunky, add more milk. For a more smoothie-like consistency, substitute the milk for 1/4 cup of plain yogurt. If you don't feel like making coffee or espresso, instant coffee is an easy substitute – just add 1 tablespoon or more depending on your preference. You can also vary the recipe by leaving out the coffee and adding frozen fruit and substituting VeganSmart All-In-One Nutritional Shake in Vanilla.
