Amp up your pre-workout protein shake with coffee to help you power through those strenuous lifts. A moderate amount of caffeine is shown to boost stamina, improve endurance and delay fatigue, so down this delicious mocha blend one hour before hitting the gym. Or, whip one up as an afternoon pick-me-up! Trust us, the frappuccino ain’t got nothing on this.
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1 tablespoon Jell-O Sugar-Free Butterscotch Pudding
2 scoops ANSI Whey 25 in chocolate
1/2 cup concentrated cold brew coffee (do not water it down), or really strong coffee, chilled
1 cup ice
Instant coffee powder (optional)
Chocolate shavings (optional)
In a blender, mix the milk and pudding powder until it thickens, about 2 minutes. Add coffee, protein powder and ice; blend until smooth. Top with chocolate shavings and instant coffee powder for some extra crunch.
