This refreshing blueberry pie latte protein shake will boost your brain power with tons of antioxidants especially if you use coffee as the base and it will fuel you through your busy day.
Hello Table for Seven readers! I’m so excited to get to chat with you today! I’ve been stalking Erin’s blog for about three years now, so it’s such an honor to be taking over for the day. My name is Amanda and I blog over at Diary of a Semi-Health Nut about a variety of things like semi-healthy recipes, my attempts at running, and lately my new cat, Zoey Fluffy Butt. I also work at a café in a gym where we whip up dozens of protein-filled smoothies and shakes every day. You might call me a professional shake-maker.
When I’m not making fruity smoothies and shakes at the gym, I’m working from home on my blog and freelance projects a couple of days a week. I tend to need a break mid-morning and this Blueberry Pie Protein Shake with Coffee has been saving my life lately. Not only does it give my eyeballs a break from the glow of the screen and gets me up off my booty, it also fuels my brain with tons of antioxidants and my belly with filling protein. I don’t know about you, but I cannot focus when I’m hungry. Or tired. This tasty blueberry pie protein shake does the trick on both accounts!
Basically what I do is I either save my leftover coffee from the morning and stick it in the fridge when I’m done with breakfast, or I’ll brew a fresh K-cup and stick it in the fridge for about an hour in anticipation of this recipe. I doctor up the coffee how I like (usually with a splash of creamer) and then throw everything into a blender. Easy peasy. I usually like to sneak some veggies into my smoothies and with ones like this that have dark fruit (and coffee), you can’t even tell. Why not, right?? This blueberry pie latte tides me over until lunchtime and keeps me awake and motivated. Try it for yourself!
