Almond Butter, Chocolate & Coffee Bean Protein Shake

Almond Butter, Chocolate and Coffee Bean Protein Shake

This shake is my newest breakfast obsession. It contains two of my very favorite things: coffee and almond butter. And then it just keeps getting better with the chocolate and cinnamon.

Mmmm.

Almond butter is so yummy. If you haven’t tried it before, I highly recommend. It’s pretty much what you’d expect it to taste like and is a nice change from peanut butter.  You could totally make this shake with peanut butter, but I like the extra nuttiness from the almond butter.

I’ve pretty much been finding ANY reason to eat almond butter lately. My current preferred ways are to either spread it on a sliced banana with a little cinnamon or this here tasty protein shake.

If the coffee beans freak you out, you can also just use 1 tbsp. brewed coffee. The coffee bean idea came to me when I really wanted the shake but was too lazy to brew a pot of coffee. It happens.

And the result was glorious.

This shake has become my little treat when Dustin is traveling for work. Since he doesn’t like coffee, he doesn’t much care for this shake. So, while he’s gone, I have this yummy coffee almond and chocolate heaven to look forward to.

    Absolutley delicious . I followed the recipe to a t. Thought it funny that my hubby’s name is Dustin and he too does not care for coffee. To each is own. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll be drinking this one alot.

    I googled “adding coffee to a breakfast smoothie”. A few recipes came up with banana, which I skipped bc I don’t care for bananas. Then I found yours. Holy cow! Using ingredients I had on hand, it was spectacular. My differences: I had maple almond butter (adding about 2 more calories) and 1 heaping tsp of dark cocoa (bc my vegan protein powder is vanilla). Threw in a tiny pinch of salt. I love your idea of using coffee beans. It’s easier, but also such a great flavor. Thank you for the recipe!
