This mocha protein coffee is a favorite pre-workout breakfast on the run. This high protein coffee recipe gives me energy, fills me up, doesn't weigh me down, and best of all, it's delicious!! Also, I love the layer of froth you get on top. It's a protein-packed mocha latte with a punch of energy.
I use a Vitamix to make this recipe, but any blender works great. The MCT oil is added for a fat source and you get some carbs from the chocolate Ovaltine. It's a complete quick meal in a glass. I love the flavor that the Ovaltine gives this drink, it's the perfect subtle mocha taste without overpowering the coffee. You also avoid the excess sugar and artificial sweeteners from chocolate syrups typically used at your local coffee house. I'm personally not a fan of the sugar-free chocolate syrups. Ovaltine has been my favorite mocha flavor additive to date for this recipe.
You can also use a chocolate-flavored protein powder made with stevia to cut the carbs in this recipe if you're on a low-carb diet and looking for a morning meal with protein and fat for energy.

Amee, I love green smoothies for breakfast, but I've never tried this kind of breakfast drink before. I'm not sure if I could chug down butter and coconut oil, although I see drinks like this all over Pinterest! Since you recommend it, I'll try it!
