  • Pour the protaein shake over the ice.
  • Pour double shot espresso into the cup.
  • Stir the mixture to combine the coffee and protein drink.

  • Regular brewed coffee or espresso contains less than 5 calories and no fat. So read the nutrition facts label on your protein shake or powder, you'll know how much protein and calories are in your proffee.
  • If you prefer a hot drink, you can make Proffee with hot water and hot coffee. However, depending on the protein powders you use, some may clump or produce a foamy drink when mixing with hot water.
  • There's no fixed ratio for brewing the best protein coffee at home, feel free to add your preferred amount of coffee and protein shake.
