Adding protein to your breakfast is a great idea. Dietary protein is the most satiating macronutrient, which means that eating eating lots of protein at breakfast will keep you full until lunch. This is key if you are trying to lose weight. Researchers have found that adding low-sugar, high-protein foods to your diet can help fuel weight loss efforts.
Can you add vegan protein powder to coffee?
You can add vegan protein powder to coffee, but it is easier said than done. Plant protein powder and coffee are not exactly a match made in heaven, and mixing plant protein powder in coffee with only a spoon will leave you with a lumpy mess. To avoid this, follow the instructions below.
“This is hands down the best tasting vegan protein powder I’ve tried. I picked Drink Wholesome because I have a sensitive stomach and I honestly didn’t expect it to taste very good. Boy was I wrong. It has a great flavor, it mixes well, and it doesn’t make me run to the bathroom like every other protein powder I’ve used.” – Charles
Why Drink Wholesome?
This recipe was made with Drink Wholesome vegan vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for coffee. Most protein powders are not good for coffee because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods chemically and/or mechanically stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients – healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, etc. – that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make most protein powders work, but how much chalky coffee are you willing to make?
Another reason why Drink Wholesome is perfect for coffee is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter (metallic) aftertaste. This is because they activate bitter taste receptors (known as TAS2Rs) in addition to sweet taste receptors. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is how to put vegan protein powder in your coffee.
-¼ cup Drink Wholesome vegan vanilla protein powder
-¾ cup of dairy-free milk
-½ cup ice (optional)
-¾ cup coffee (or 1-2 shots of espresso)
Mix the protein powder and dairy-free milk in a shaker bottle or blender. Then transfer the mixture to a small saucepan and heat it over low heat, stirring constantly. Heating too quickly can cause clumping. When the mixture begins to simmer, slowly add the coffee or espresso. This may seem like a lot of work, but it only takes a few minutes, and is the only way to ensure that your protein coffee is not lumpy.
Protein coffee is good any time of the day. Sometimes, I blend coffee, ice, and protein powder in the afternoon for a frozen, high protein treat.
