Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like we need a break after the holidays?! The whole month of January is not only super long, but makes me feel like I need WAAAAAY more energy and time than I actually have. I usually have one cup of coffee in the mornings, but have found a sneaky way to have a MTN OPS Protein Iced Coffee that gives me energy, tastes soooo good, and satisfies my craving for fancy store-bought drinks. Saving money and gaining energy with protein and a bunch of nutrients? Hallelujah!
Base Coffee Recipe:
1 level scoop of MTN OPS MAGNUM in chocolate or vanilla for the best mocha-y flavor!
1/2 cup unsweetened regular/soy/almond milk.
1/2 cup cold or room temperature brewed coffee.
1 1/2 cups cubed ice
Whipped Cream to top (optional but highly recommended!)
Directions: BLEND (or shake in a shaker bottle) and ENJOY!
If you’re feeling EXTRA wild, this is where it gets fun: you can get various Torani syrups (or make your own if you’re crafty and have time!!) to customize your yummy iced coffees. A few of my favorite combos are:
Vanilla + Caramel
Hazelnut + Vanilla
Amaretto + Vanilla
White chocolate + Vanilla + Peppermint
Salted caramel + Chocolate or Mocha
The possibilities are literally so endless! Since discovering this concoction, I’m even more energetic than usual because these iced coffee combos are giving me life!! I love sharing recipes with y’all, so be sure to keep an eye out for even more yummy goodness coming your way!
