Coffee Protein Smoothie

300-Calorie Iced Coffee Protein Smoothie (Tastes Like Melted Coffee Ice Cream!)

What would happen if an iced coffee went on a date with a protein smoothie? And they got married, bought a house, and had a baby? It'd look just like this — an iced coffee protein smoothie. A deliciously creamy, slightly sweet breakfast with a strong coffee flavor. This is one cool way to enjoy your cup of joe in the morning on a hot day while also getting a healthy dose of protein — 22 grams.

This smoothie follows the perfect breakfast formula for weight loss complete with healthy fats and fiber to keep you full for hours. It tastes a little like melted coffee ice cream, so yeah, it's pretty amazing.

This smoothie is made with one eight-ounce cup of coffee, so it'll definitely give you a caffeine boost. As a bonus, it's a great way to use leftover coffee — just put it in the fridge and grab it the next morning.
