    Make sure coffee is not hot. Hot coffee does bad things to protein powder! - 11/3/11

    I heat the milk up for 45 seconds and then add the protein powder slowly to help it blend better. I also put in about a half a teaspoon of cocoa to give it a richer chocolaty flavor. This has been such a boost to my morning to get this much extra protein with the coffee that I already drink anyways. - 6/19/13

    I blended the protein powder and milk together first and then added the hot coffee and it was fine. It does need a little sweetner
    though. - 6/19/13

    A VERY nice Recipe! I wonder if it's better to add another 1/2 a scoop vanilla protein powder. It would taste different.
    Coffee should be cooled down as it may alter the characteristics of the amino acids in the protein powder!

    Many thanks - 6/29/13

    I used Beverly International's UMP in vanilla, which is a protein mix, but mainly casein. It works great, because it can get very hot with much greater success than pure whey. So not only was this recipe delicious, but I also learned that I UMP makes a really nice coffee creamer! - 6/18/13

    Just tried this, what a quick easy and great tasting way to add protein to my day. I will be trying it over ice as the weather warms up. I had chocolate and peanut butter protein powder and it was so good. Had 1/2 cup before dinner and ate less because I was already feeling full. - 5/22/13

    A serving of Pure Protein is 2 scoops;100 calories. I made this as suggested and it was weak, thin, and left me hungry. I made it again with 1 1/2 scoops, and it was thick, delicious and filling! If made with 2 scoops, 1/2 c of 1% milk and coffee, it would equal 155 cal. Add 2 pckts Stevia, 5 cubes. - 6/30/13

    This is a great recipe. I've been drinking this for years. It is a great way to add protein to your afternoon coffee. Sometimes I add a full scoop when I need more calories. I am on the road a lot and I keep a small can of powder in my car. Just make sure the coffee is not to hot . - 7/6/13

    I tried this the other morning, and it was good. Made it with Chocolate Silk Light, a teaspoon of cocoa powder, protein powder, and double strength coffee that I brewed and let cool down. Put all in blender with lots of ice. Very good, but I need to tweak it a bit so it tastes like a Frappucino. - 7/6/13

  • This has been a great way to sneak some protein into my mornings. I mix the 1/2 scoop into 1/2c milk then heat the mixture just enough to not cool the coffee too much, then I add about 16oz coffee and a touch of sweetener. Be sure to dissolve the powder completely or it will be chunky/lumpy. - 9/7/13

  • This is a great idea ffor when you need more of a boost than just the caffine in the coffee..I have used vanilla protein powder as a substitute because I was out of chocolate and it still was just as good...and 80% of the time I drink iced coffee, this is great over ice after blending it up - 7/31/13

    I am allergic to milk products - this protein powder I would not use. I would substitute Life's Basic Plant Protein Mix Powder - Natural Vanilla or Chocolate, and use coconut milk in place of the milk, plus the coffee. Otherwise, I really do not drink coffee to wake up and energize me. - 6/29/13
