Between the parties, gift-giving and delicious holiday meals, it’s important to have plenty of energy during the holiday season. Our refreshing and creamy coffee protein shake is made with chocolate protein powder, so it will satisfy your sweet tooth – and its candy cane mocha flavour and Timothy’s® Christmas Blend coffee will keep you in the festive spirit!
How to Make a Coffee Protein Shake with Candy Canes
To make your coffee protein shake, start by adding ice to a tall plastic glass, and place it in your stylish Keurig® K‑Elite™ coffee maker.
Next, brew your Timothy’s® Christmas Blend coffee K‑Cup® pod using the Iced setting, and enjoy the aroma as it pours over the ice.
Then, once the iced coffee is cold you can pour it into the blender. It’s up to you if you keep the remaining ice, or discard it. Keeping the ice gives your protein coffee drink more of a coffee smoothie texture. Discarding the ice gives you an authentic cold coffee protein shake.
Add Chocolate and Peppermint for a Holiday-Ready Coffee Protein Shake
Now that you have your iced coffee made, it’s time to add the rest of your ingredients and blend up your cold coffee protein shake!
First, add a scoop of your favourite protein powder. We recommend chocolate-flavoured for that delicious mocha protein shake flavour!
Next, put in milk, or non-dairy substitute, to make this coffee protein shake extra smooth.
Finally, carefully add one drop of peppermint extract to give your cold coffee protein shake that holiday zip!
Decorate Your Peppermint Mocha Recipe with Candy Canes and More
The final step before enjoying your coffee protein shake is choosing a delicious garnish.
For this shake made with Timothy’s® Christmas Blend coffee, and a touch of peppermint flavour, choosing the best topping is easy: candy canes!
First, add whipped cream to the top of your drink to hold the candy cane pieces on your coffee protein shake, and show them off.
Then, put unwrapped candy canes into a resealable plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin. You’ll know they’re ready when you have the right size pieces for your shake.
Finally, sprinkle the crushed candy cane over the top of your peppermint coffee protein shake.
A holiday-themed peppermint protein coffee shake makes for a perfect snack between festive meals!
