Remember when you were younger, and you imagined your life as a “grown-up”?
Life with demanding careers, family, and social activities have caused our society to speed up the morning routines.
But studies show time and time again that breakfast is the most essential meal of the day. It boosts your metabolism, prevents you from giving in to unhealthy options, and boosts your energy throughout the day.
I wish that work hours began about three hours later, after a healthy pot of coffee, and time to devour an amazing breakfast. Unfortunately, for the majority of Americans, this is not a scenario that will become reality any time soon.
I’m so excited to share with you my abbreviated version of the “sit down and smell the fresh morning air” breakfast! I began making it this week and loving how I feel about it.
- 12 ounces of coffee, dark or light roast
- 1-2 scoops of chocolate protein powder – I have been using EAS 100% Pure Whey Protein Powder, Chocolate, 5lb Tub, 30 grams of Whey Protein Per Serving (Packaging May Vary). The taste is rich, like real chocolate!
- 2 Tablespoons of 3 pack Trader Joe's Shelf Stable Tetra Grade A Whipping Cream 8 FL Oz (236 mL) Cream at the Ready When You Need It (UHT) Room Temperature, 3 Pack
- A sprinkle of cinnamon
Stir with a fork until the protein powder is nicely mixed into the coffee.
A healthy, fat & protein packed coffee drink that tastes like a mocha latte!
I’m seriously so incredibly happy with the results of this recipe! It’s delicious, incredibly fast to make, and gives me energy throughout the day.
Someday there will be time for pancakes and bacon…. But today this is perfect!
