I'm not much of a morning person so coffee is key to jump starting my day - but sometimes it isn't enough. I was looking for a quick and easy way to have my coffee. a little food, and some long lasting protein all in one, so I started to test blending a few of my favorite things together. The result was a delicious, energizing protein shake with the benefits of some caffeine and the perfect way to kick start my day!
