Chocolate Protein Iced Coffee is perfect for busy mornings.
Mornings in my house are rushed and chaotic. No matter how much I plan the night before, it’s inevitable that something will go awry and the morning will quickly spin out of control.
I’m pretty sure that’s normal for most of us. If it’s not normal for you, please share your secrets with the rest of us.
As soon as my feet hit the ground in the morning, I’m constantly doing for everyone else…even the dogs. From preparing school lunches to consoling tired children who don’t want to go to school, mornings just aren’t my favorite.
And to be honest, some mornings I forget about breakfast. With all the things that I have to do, sometimes it just escapes me.
Does that ever happen to you?
But what if you could sneak in some protein in your morning coffee. Wouldn’t that be nice? It’s almost like killing two birds with one stone. I say almost because really, you still need more for breakfast, but it’s nice for those times when it just isn’t going to happen.

This Chocolate Protein Iced Coffee is super easy to make and shouldn’t take much longer than making your regular morning coffee. You could even prepare most of it the night before (add ice when ready to drink) and have it ready for you in the refrigerator the next morning.

I love that I can sneak in a few grams of protein while drinking my morning coffee. I’m going to drink coffee regardless, but with this easy drink, it helps me feel a little full until I can grab a quick breakfast.
After the kids get off to school, I like to get a few minutes of me time before I officially start my work day at home. Being able to make a super quick pick-me-up allows me to do just that. Me time is so important for us as we are busy raising our little families.
Never underestimate the power of me time. Even if it’s just a couple minutes. It does a body good!
Instant coffee is a wonderful solution for me on busy mornings. I get the same coffee I know and love, in an easier and faster way.
Skip the coffee shop drive-thru, y’all. Make your coffee just the way you like it no matter where you are. Need a mid-day pick me up? Make half a serving for an afternoon boost. It helps when you’re cooking dinner, helping with homework, ironing your husband’s clothes, and bathing the dog — all at the same time.
Not really, but you get my point.
Whether your me time is 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or even longer, it’s important that we take time for ourselves each and every day. Life is crazy. Take some time each day to slow down and simply relax. It’ll be worth it. I promise!
