Protein coffee is very forgiving, and it doesn’t matter how you brew your coffee. For simplicity’s sake, we recommend brewing your coffee exactly as you normally would. This is the quick and easy version, after all.
Add 1-2 scoops of protein powder. If protein coffee is going to be your only calories for the morning, go with two scoops. As a supplement to a more substantial breakfast, you can get away with only one scoop.
Stir vigorously. We’ve found that our protein powder dissolves pretty easily in hot coffee, but your results will vary depending on the specific protein powder you use.
If you usually take milk and sugar in your coffee, feel free to use them in protein coffee too. Some people find they don’t need sugar because of the additional flavor the protein powder adds. Try it both ways and see what you prefer.
Choose a protein powder with a flavor that plays nicely with coffee. Chocolate is the safest choice, and usually what we go for. It gives our protein coffee a nice mocha flavor. It can be difficult to get protein powder to mix evenly without leaving chunks behind. A simple tip that can help is to use a slightly larger mug than a standard coffee cup. It might sound silly, but having more room to stir without worrying about spilling coffee over the sides makes a big difference.
