Coffee not only peps you up, it also has other advantages.
Do you also belong to the last minute lie and do everything in the last second" or "I sit till 2 hours motionless with my coffee on my bed" kind? Then you probably will not have time in the early morning to conjure up an Instagram-ready Acai Bowl breakfast, understandably. That's why we have a better alternative for you:
Does that look familiar? Out of sheer desperation, we often tip over a coffee with (soy) milk in the early morning and sincerely hope that we don't feel hungry until lunch. In order to wake up faster and be fuller in the morning, however, you do not need long preparation time - and food cravings are also avoided :
For the absolute caffeine kick in the morning, we have created a win-win situation for you. All you need is a blender (we assume that everyone has one in their kitchen) and not more than 5 minutes. Doesn't that sound good?
The three best shakes and smoothies with a coffee kick:
1. Mocha Protein Shake
The mocha protein shake tastes like a chocolate shake, but is more saturated with the protein content.
1. about 30 grams of chocolate protein powder and 60 grams of vanilla protein powder
2. 2 dates
3. 1 cup ice cube
4. 200 milliliters of milk
5. 150 milliliters of cold coffee
Simply put everything in the blender and blend for one minute until creamy - then pour into a to-go cup and decorate with granola or oat flakes. Done.
2. Banana Oat Flakes Coffee Shake
You need enough carbohydrates in the early morning for your brain to work properly and carry you through the stressful daily routine.
1. 1/2 frozen banana
2. 2 tbsp wholemeal oat flakes
3. 100 millilitres of cold coffee
4. 100 millilitres of milk
5. a pinch of cinnamon and vanilla
6. 1 tsp raw cocoa powder
Simply put everything in the blender and blend for one minute until creamy. Done.
3. Coconut Peanut Butter Coffee Shake
Of course we like to spoon piles of peanut butter out of the jar, but there is also a healthier alternative, which saturates for a long time due to the fat content.
1. 1 cup of ice cubes
2. 1/4 cup coconut almond milk
3. 2 tsp peanut butter
4. 2 tsp coconut flakes
5. 1 tsp raw cocoa powder
6. 1 banana
7. 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
Just put everything in the blender and blend for one minute until creamy. Done.
Caffeine shakes are not only delicious, they also give you a good start to the day - there are no limits to your imagination and you can vary the ingredients at any time. Enjoy.
