  1. I am always looking for a good protein shake and my favorite flavor is vanilla. Great post and the recipe sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing, I will have to use it now 🙂

  2. nice! I am a big fan of coffee 🙂

  3. Mmm what a great way to start the morning off right with some protein and a little extra kick to boost the metabolism! I’m thinking it might be nice to brew up a bit pot of coffee and keep it cold in the fridge to use throughout the week for a routine morning coffee shake!

    This smoothie was DELICIOUS! But, was there supposed to be coconut oil in it? I noticed you use it in a lot of your other smoothie recipes, and you have it listed in benefits section, but its not a listed ingredient. It was great without it though!

  10. Ohh this sounds so yummy! I love the glass too!

    Was there supposed to be coconut oil in this recipe? It is listed in benefits but not in recipe…

  15. If I have a sleeping problem with coffee, should I adjust the amount of coffee? Because maybe I will make it in my afternoon break.
